Botanical Project

So here's what I did with the gorgeous antique botanicals Kelley sent me.

To say I'm a little embarassed out how plainly I "framed" them would be an understatment...but this is so me....I'm Plain Jane.

I have to tell ya...I really love how these look...they fit right in with my farmhouse style...and the cost....I spent $0.00.

We always have spare wood lying around....I always have clothespins....and I always have white paint.

So there you have it....four "framed" botanicals for zero bucks.....gotta love that.

Now....go take a peek at what the other fantastic bloggers did with their botanicals....



and


I wanted to thank Kelley again for including me in this wonderful project...your the best!

  8. You know, I loved what the others did with their prints, especially the chunky old wood frames, but I have to say, I love this the best. It's so simple, yet beautiful, because the prints are gorgeous and speak for themselves.

    Good job!

  10. WOW WOW WOW!!
    LOVE that "frame job"
    Have to ask a stupid but practical question - If these were in a bathroom say ...the humidity would get to them - I'm guessing they are not but depending on the region's climate do you think you will have a problem with curling or mildewing?
    just wondering?

  18. love what you have accomplished here. my books are filled with pressed flowers and it is always a joy to randomly come upon one and remembering where the flower, leaf or root was picked. the pillow and chair are also adorable.
