Aqua Shabby Frame

I'm linking up with Ruby Jean/Angelina's My Blue Monday! Don't you just love her button? Her is an old frame I bought at garage sale a couple years ago. It was gold but I painted it a bright Aqua /blue with paint I mixed myself. Have to get that just right color-ya know?

I hot glued a vintage nursery lamb from blogger Linda to the corner of the frame and then hung my Swiss Alpine plates inside! These are the plates of my early childhood and I'm always on the look out at the thrifts for other pieces to match! Many blogging friends have gifted me with small plates and even 2 berry bowls! I actually saw a tea pot at the GW once but it was all chipped and cracked. Now I wish I would have bought it anyway. Thrifters remorse.... We all know about that- right?

My plates were adhered to the wall with Velcro fasteners. Do not try this if you live in a humid climate!

Girls, If you didn't see my last post, I'm soon going to be changing my blog name to *Cutie Pie Cottage*. I'll be kicking off this change with a new Dotty Hop blog party and a small give away, too! Stay tuned!

Love and laugh today!

That aqua blue is one of my favorite colors these days! And it looks like I'm going to have to start buying dotty things, so that I can join your party at the new Cutie Pie Cottage each week!

This is such a cute idea! I have been seeing these alpine plates at all the vintage stores recently. Just saw a bunch at one of the stores I wandered through on Saturday.
