what i love: vintage frames

* sorry this is a day late...my charger for the computer went wonky...i almost cried and freaked out...but its fixed now, thank you apple store. haha
ok ok i know its no secret that i love frames. why you ask? i have no idea. the crazy thing? i love frames best empty, with no picture or art inside. does that say something about me? don't answer that question.
my favorite frames at the moment are vintage chunky frames, you know the gaudy gold and wooden ones from the 60's and 70's. i spray paint them or wrap them in fabric. all those bright yummy colors make me all happy inside.
like i have said before, if there is a 12 step for this please email me.....
i need it.
at garage sales i generally find them for a buck or two.  can you believe it? oh that makes me happy. give me a Starbucks on a Friday or Saturday morning and i am a happy girl!
simple things make me so happy.
i have always been like this.
non high maintenance.
easy like Sunday morning....

here are some lovelies i found and marked on pinterest:

So funny April...I actually used that exact yellow empty picture frame picture(does that make sense haha) as the inspiration for this project in my house.. It was such a fun inexpensive project and it totally spruced up our boring wall. I also really like the all white frames as well!
