A Row of Empty


I have long touted my love of an empty frame.It is much easier for me to make a commitment
to a beautiful frame
than to the painting or picture it may contain.
Because of this love I have gathered
several gorgeous frames over the years.
All were acquired from thrift stores.Most cost less than five dollars.I have painted some.Many have their original finish.Some have intricate details.Others are plain.Yes, I am smitten by a pretty frame.So it's not surprising
that I would gather many together
to decorate the mantle shelf in our dining area.
(I tucked a line of Christmas lights behind so there is a lovely warm glow at night.)
