How about an example?

One week later and it occurs to me to post photos of some calendar art I’ve actually managed to frame instead of photos of the shameful stack of calendars I’ve been meaning to frame. You know, so you don’t think I’m JUST a hoarder. Sometimes, I actually manage to do something with the crap I collect!I framed four pages from the Cavallini & Co. calendar featuring World War II propaganda posters. I used frames from Ikea, similar to these, and covered the mats with art paper as described in my post here. There are four in total, but I was too lazy to go get my other lens so I could get a full shot of the mantel.

That mirror, by the way, was purchased at a yard sale for $4. FOUR DOLLARS. I spotted it from the car and screeched to a halt, leaped out, and asked how much — and about fainted when the lady said $4. It’s about three-and-a-half feet tall and heavy as heck. The gesso at the top is chipped somewhat but I absolutely adore it.

janie hightower These photos are great! Makes me want a mantle, some framed WWII calendar art, a white framed mirror and a bunch of cream colored vintage pottery.
