frame and matt you photos?

photo2February 28, 2007

I aways enlarge, matt and frame my favorite photos and hang them on the walls. I change them usually when the season changes. I recently put up some flowers that I had taken in my garden last summer and hung them in my dinning area.. It gives me hope that spring is right around the corner and adds some cheer to this gloomy weather we have had in this area lately. How about you?? do you display your favorites?? I have seen some real beauties..if you don't you should! lol

wow, love those rooms, both of you. And great pics. I have thousands and thousands, I see mine mostly on my screensaver. But I have some framed and hung at home in MN, my favorites of my grandkids. And here in FL, I have a few hung. I have more I want to hang, but I can't find matching frames and mats in different sizes. I'd like to have them all match, so just the pictures would be different, like you both have.

I suspect I will have more to hang, or give away, the in-laws gave me a matt cutter for x-mas. I haven't used it yet. I really have been slow getting the camera out lately. I seem to be a little bit busier lately...

I often thought of getting a matt cutter. I can't believe I haven't bought one by now. When you get around to using yours, give us your opinion. I know what you mean about being busy..... work sometimes interfers with our hobbies doesn't it! lol

Those are all very striking! Thanks for sharing them.

Photo2 - can you tell me about your wall words? Is that a stencil or a rub on. That goes so well with your framed prints.

Joe - love the red wall!

I purchased the Wall Words from a company I found on line called "Words Anywhere" You just tell them what saying, words, phrase you want in any color ,size, font you want and they will make it for you.It really looks just like someone painted it on your wall after you apply it. The service was prompt and I was very happy with the company. I have ordered twice from them and have no complaints. Their web sight has lots of good ideas and they will show you a preview of everything before you committo buying.
