Picture Perfect

I found this cute item at the thrift store on Thursday. At first glance I thought it was a compact. I saw a neat idea at the antique show last summer using compacts as picture frames. One side has the mirror for applying your make-up and the other side would have the powder. I found a couple at the show and put one together for my friend's anniversary. Monica sent home some pictures of Wyatt for the Oregon family and today I had the idea to make this one .

This is the inside. It had some vinyl sleeves for photos. I have found a couple of these before. Now that I have my new idea I'll have to be on the look out for more.

There now isn't that right up Great Grandma Maur's alley. She will love it.

While Gareld was walking the aisles of the Sportsman Show I decided to skip sitting at the cooking presentations for three hours as I have in the past and do something different. I dropped him off and drove to Camas, WA. There is an antique mall there that I have seen mentioned in some blogs I follow. I wandered around for a couple of hours and saw a lot of nice things. I liked this lamp and nothing is hotter than burlap right now. Now I am on the hunt for some lamp shades and I need to have Sandra show me how to make those fabric bows.
