I'm a mini-collector; I collect 3-4 things of a kind, and that's it.

I love old frames. Even damaged ones.

This frame was made from two damaged frames and hand-painted.

I found this frame, destined for the trash, and rescued it. It was perfect for the antique lace samples.

I also decorate with them. This changes once in a while.

Simplicity is the removal of the useless and the unnecessary--source unknown


  1. I love this side of you Colette. I think you’ve inspired me to look at frames in a new light

  2. I love the idea of mixing old frames to make new - what a brilliant idea! And I'm with you on the collecting - I have a variety of things, but usually no more than about 3 of something. Edinburgh has some great junk and curio shops!

  3. I love to see your art blog posts!! All the best to you = )

  4. What a lovely collection! Interesting use of them, too!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I really appreciate each and every one of you.
