Memory Box of Mo for Bro
Bought this frame at an antique store years ago, and had planned to put a mirror in it and mosaic it, but there isn't room in the house now for it. Was looking for an old drawer to make a memory box of Mo for my Bro, when I spied this frame. Built the box behind it (about 3"), and covered the inside w/anaglypta. Had bought the metal flower recently from my neighbor's garage sale ('twas her Mo's), and am putting it on the center top of the box. Was trying to come up w/some colors to combine, and couldn't make up my mind so slept on it. Today when I was showing the project to my friend Becky, I went for the flower, and LO, what a sweet moment. I had chosen the colors that are in the flower - serendipity. Hadn't a clue. I have a small chest of drawers to attach midway inside the back, and perhaps build a little shelf in there too. There w/be a small amount of mosaicing. Inside the designs on the frame front, I'll apply gold leaf. Am going to Bro's on Monday to start housecleaning, and w/gather small items to go in the memory box. Gonna enjoy this project.
