if you've ever visited, it might be obvious that i don't love clutter and unnecessary stuff. (well, except for dog toys, of which i seem to have an extraordinary many considering that atlas doesn't play with toys. but i digress ..)
anyway, the black frames used to hold two photos from venice. i removed the photos a while ago but couldn't figure out what to do with the frames. they were just sitting in the closet - which bothered me. what i really wanted was to find two brightly colored photos and to hang them in the laundry room. except i kind of wanted the photos to be of clothes - and i didn't have any photos that were quite right. one night, i was looking at the latest jcrew catalog, and i had a brilliant idea! i tore out two pages from the catalog and framed them! inexpensive - and just what i was looking for.
yay. i had my daisy photo put on a 20x30 canvas! i love it. another thing to sit and stare happily at .. (what can i say, my home makes me happy - which is, i think, the best thing ever.) it's not quite as yellow in real life as in the photo - clearly i have not mastered the art of interior lighting.
