Sunken Treasures #7

Not only finished – but framed too. I amaze myself sometimes πŸ˜‰

NaturalBowFramedI used another one of my bargain charity shop frames. That one cost the grand sum of 50p. It’s framed using the same method as the last one.

I need more frames now. I have several, but none are the right size or shape for the projects that need to go in them. I have now made a note of all the project sizes, and will take that with me next time I go trawling for bargains.

    • I’ve got a lot of things waiting to be framed, so there was a fair chance that something would fit in the frame. I do think it’s a good match for this project though, so that was lucky πŸ™‚

  3. Lovely! πŸ™‚ I tried looking for bargains when I needed to frame my butterfly, but apparently the charity shops near me don’t sell old pictures!

    • I’m lucky in that there are dozens of different ones near to me and all the ones that I visited last time had frames of one sort or another. My best buy was the four frames, with no pictures in, as they were just 50p each. The other one was expensive in comparison at Β£2.49.
      Keep checking your shops. You never know if they might get something in.
