The Kitchen Shutter

I don't know about you, but I often have to look at something for a while before I know what to do with it. So even though I hung up the other shutter last week, I had to think about it for a bit. The one thing I'd decided to do was to hang aprons on it, so I had added clear glass knobs to the two holes already in the bottom (and on the top part, too).




So that part was easy, but I decided it needed another knob on bottom. But now what? I wasn't sure I wanted plates on it like on the other one, but maybe a picture...




...hung a wee bit off center...oops! You might remember this little framed seed packet from last spring. I had a few others that I had framed several years ago, but removed them to reframe them to group with this one, but lost them! (Typical.) I am really wishing I could find them about now, because it would be just perfect it there were just two others on the shutter. SO...right now it looks like this~




But not for long, because I think I have a good idea for the rest! BUT I wanted to show you what I had so far, so you'd know I wasn't a complete slacker! ;)




Now as far as Valentine's Day decorations, I must admit I have been a pretty big slacker, BUT I always have to mix up the mantel, you know it's true! Yes, you guessed it, it's THE FRAMES again~ enter Twilight Zone music...








Are you running from the computer, screaming yet? I hope not, because you know after Valentine's Day is said and done, I am going to have to change the word again. And you will probably have to suffer through another picture. Again. And did you know I have already changed the frames three times since Christmas? It's a sickness, I tell you, a real sickness. :)


Well, here's hoping you are all doing well, and have a wonderful night! :)






P.S. These are two moulding pictures for Jen at The Candlelit Cottage...can you believe I don't know how to attach something to an email?





Jen, I hope these up-close pictures help! :)
