Trigger Tuesday

On Saturday...Better late than never!  Look at this lovely photo Cath put up for this weeks Trigger Tuesday challenge at Moxie Fab.  Doesn't it look lushious?  I just want to crawl into that on a cold winter's day, with a good book and a cup of hot chocolate...mmmm.... 
With this inspiration, I made a cute little frame for my mom to put up in her new house.  She needs to slow down and enjoy this little things in life and not work so hard, I thought this sentiment could be a nice little reminder...are you listening mom?... 

This is a small little frame about 5" square.  I picked up a 3 pack of them at the Target $1 spot a few years back.  Time to make something cool with them, don't you think?  The frame was a perfect white, so I distressed it with a pair of flower clippers...the only thing I had on hand to use...
I cut the little squares 1", stitched them on a piece of crumb cake, distressed them and lightly added white paint around the edges.  The blanket in the photo reminded me of these fabulous fabric doilies I have, and had to use one for this...aren't they wonderful?...  I plan on making a few kits with these to sell in my etzy shop...whenever I find some time...
