SPRING SPRING SPRING!!

We are having the most amazing weather here! 70 degrees all week long!!!! Maybe in other parts of the country that is normal, but here in  MN that doesn't usually happen until May! We've been on a lot of walks and a visit to the lake. Granted there is still ice on the lake, but it's still lovely nonetheless. I know Spring isn't until next week and we have St. Patrick's day to celebrate first, I couldn't help but do some Spring decorating. I found the frames at a thrift store. They were U.G.L.Y.!!! But with some paint, they look totally transformed! So NEVER underestimate some old junky frames and paint! Hello transformation!!!!







I had fun editing these photos with PicMonkey. It's very similar to Picnik, so I'm glad I found another fun photo editing site after Picnik goes buh-bye. I suppose I could finally learn how to use photoshop, but I like to keep it real (and easy). I used a feature called Yester-color to give it an old fashioned vintage look to these photos. 

But I also like the other camera effects too...

HDR

Boost

Cross Process
Basic editing

Hi Sabrina! I found your blog and it is amazing! I am a total novice compared to you. I hesitate to give you these links, just because my blogs are so juvenile, but here there are:

Dosmallthingswithlove.blogspot.com (this is the blog I just started with my sister. It is about motherhood and religious.

Sorry for the long comment. I'm happy to discover that you are a crafter and a blogger!

St Patrick's day decorations are up, spring decorations go up on Saturday. Yours look great, now I'm even more excited to get mine up.

Very pretty! I think Boost and Cross-Process are my favorite effects. As for me, I'm doing zero decorating for spring. Just waiting for baby to come along and cluttering the house up with baby things!

I just found your blog through Circle of Moms. I'm so with you on losing Picnik! I have Photoshop, but there is such a HUGE learning curve that I still use Picasa/Picnik as my "go to" editing software!

Love your blog! Anything crafty...count me in!

Claire said...

Such fun, fresh spring decor! Everything looks great and has so much quirky character. I especially like the bird cage on the upside down milk glass cup. I'll be switching to PicMonkey soon, too. It will be a sad day when Picnik closes . . .

Take care,

Claire @ alittlesomethinginthemeantime.blogspot.com

Your spring decor is so pretty. I love your banner, cute idea to do it in the shape of eggs. Love the butterflies frame above, and also like how you flipped over a hobnail dish and put a cloche on top. The different colored eggs also add a nice touch. My fingers are crossed that you will share your very pretty vignette on Sunday's Best tonight.

Suffia said...

Very pretty colors. Happy Spring.

Still so very cute, and just wanted to say how excited I was to see you shared at Sunday's Best. Thanks so much.

I love your spring display! And thank you for mentioning PicMonkey. I'm dreading the closing of Picnik, but I clicked on your link to PicMonkey and you are right -- they are very similar! Thanks!
