Birch Frame

{My version}

{Their version}

This is more like a little telephone call or text message you may send off to your bff...just short and SWEET!

The other day we were in PB kids looking for deals...there was one "deal" that you may call a deal, but by no means a screaming deal!!!

As I was planning a baby shower for a friend, I remembered the cute birch frames they had hanging throughout the store. My hubby called to see how much they were and of course, they were only for display...NOT for biggie, they probably would have been close to the price of our daughter's college tuition anyway...sooo, with rubber polka dotted rainboots, my rain jacket and garden cutteres, I went out to our swampland {backyard} and gathered enough branches to make our own version of a rustic birch frame. I still have a few more to make...but I am so excited they didn't cost one single sparkly dime! Sometimes it is fun to have to be creative when a price tag is not an option!!


UPDATE: My version is still in the rough...but I will be mounting my bird picture onto foam core board with spray adhesive and then tying it to the frame with light pink divine twine...the pink bird will be attached with light green twine to bring in the two colors. I know...blah blah blah. That is the plan! I would LOVE to know if you go branch gathering in a swamp near YOU. OOPS...I did give the branches a nice warm bath to clean them off a bit and so that they look nice and clean!
