Inspiration Frames for Cottage Den…
Every one of us needs a place to display what inspires us. I would so very much like to create or own what I see on many of your bogging pages – but as you know most of what we see won’t really fit into our homes, backyards, or lives. So in the midst of my Den Makeover – I found that because I am a visual person – having a picture to gawk at is the best way I can find what speaks to me. The inspiration of a picture creates a mood – a mood that attracts me to certain items, items I want to surround myself with. Consequently – My happy place!
I found these frames on Pottery Barn. They came with out glass and wiring. I took the frames down to Michaels and they only charged $15. to put wire in all three frames. I know I could have done the wire myself – but I was afraid I would mess it up…these were a major completion of my décor in the den that I couldn’t risk ruining.
I searched so many places to find clips that were cute enough to display my pictures – finally found some at Ben Franklin – I was a happy girl that day! Couldn’t get anything to heavy for the wires, but strong enough to hold my important inspirations.
These inspirational pictures that I have clipped into my frames remind me everyday what mood I would want to create… Currently these frames hold upcoming antique show dates in my area and some sweet gift tags that I have recently received. Also, I am working on an area of my garden that houses my chickens…so I have been searching books, blogs and websites to see what mood I want to create – I apologize if I have used one of your pictures to inspire me but not credited you for it…please email me and I will be sure to do so. What can I say – you inspired me!
I plan to add more vintage frames with perhaps some vintage floral prints to go on this wall. I’ll keep you posted…

UBER Brilliant! lol
What a GRAND idea! Ohh...each one of those frames is simply gorgeous! My favorite is the one with the oval inset! I love the embossing on it...sooo antique and chippy...perfection!!! What a neat idea...to add wire to the frames so that you can display photos or art that is inspirational to you! Truly unique...and I like that! What a lovely addition to your den's decor! Thank you for sharing it with us!
Warmest spring wishes,
