Before & After

No, these aren't pictures of the house...sorry.

My sister Melanie just got married, and this was our wedding gift to them. I just thought I would put before and after pics up...

So, I found a hideous picture (so hideous, in fact, that I took it out of the frame before I took this picture) at a local thrift store, (which for the record, is nothing like Thrift City...still bitter about having to leave that behind.)

Painted the frame, raided my moms button tin, and sewed on like 200 buttons in the shape of a "T"...no, I did not come up with the idea on my own...stole it from my clever friend, Alison.
As you can see, it was a rather big "T"...Jemma was kind enough to model next to it (in front of our gardening shed) for the picture to give you an idea of it's size...(sweats in 90 degree weather? I don't get it either. Maybe she was cold after her shower that evening...) I was really pleased with the result. Hope they like it!
