Faites un Souhait...

I pulled this frame out of a box lot I had snagged at an auction last summer, and thought my Martha Stewart starburst paper would look fabulous with the gold frame.

All it took was some Papyrus glitter paper, a few seals, metal embellishments and a black and white image...complete with crowns! Because what's a Queen without her crown?

The chandelier I picked up at a garage sale makes the perfect stand!

Speaking of Papyrus, you have to stop off at their website - the Easter collection is out, and you all know what that means...adorable Peter Rabbit gift wrap, decorative speckled Robin's eggs, and vintage-inspired stationery! Ohh la la!

I love your new blog header photo and the quote is perfect.
Using the vintage chandelier as a stand is such a creative idea.
Thank you for the Papyrus link - did you mention "speckled robin's eggs" :-}

Bon jour, and tres jolie! (I say, quickly maxing out what French I remember effectively from high school) :)

I love these sorts of altered art pieces and yours turned out very nicely, lovely cohesive look to it. I'd been thinking of trying something similar with vintage photo scans and wooden Scrabble tiles. If it turns out half as cute as yours, I'll be pleased.

Thanks much for stopping by yesterday, it was really terrific to meet you.

Bonjour Kate, Elle est belle!

Thank you for visiting our blog recently, and your lovely comments. Sorry it has taken us a litle while to visit you. We have just posted on our blog today, we will be away for a long while! A long while in terms of blogging anyway! Shame as we just got to meet you properly! Oh well, when we return we would love to take up just where we left off!

And we adore papyrus too :) Jenn and Jacqui

Just so lovely. I am very fond of the Papyrus line. They always have very nice cards and paper.
Hope you are staying warm.

This is GORGEOUS!! You are such a creative talent aren't you??

I love Papyrus! We had one in St. Louis but not one yet near by here.
A beautiful store.

Hugs sweet Kate!

Thanks for the Payrus link - I'd forgotten all about them! They have such fabulous wrapping paper. Love the frame and using the chandelier is just genius - very pretty!
