...never can say goodbye.... you find there are some things you just can't part with...? her very first cath kidston dress...
...or a pattern that reminds you of a time..
...and you simply can't let go?
...oh and those little shoes of course!
well i found some fabulous inspiration
this week.... a framing shop!
the talented staff at 
have created a 'wall of inspiration'...
with some wonderful ideas....
..not just for treasured clothes...
..but ways of using frames...
'outside the box'
..i loved this idea for your favourite books..
...and old photographs...
..whilst i was there
some stunning vintage embroidery was being
lovingly framed to give it a new
lease of life....
...and this 'denim patch pocket' board
is just brilliant for pens and brushes! never know quite when or where
you will find inspiration...
..but do pop by if you are local..
...or try some of these ideas for yourself
(this was a pink painted blackboard in a frame!)
...have fun!



  1. I can never let go...and now I have inspiration overload and need a lie down! xx

  3. Love the book box frame thingummyjig doodahs! Jane x

  4. Inspiration overload! So many wonderful ideas! Love the ribbon with tiny pegs - I Blu-Tack artsy postcards on a wall within a frame, but the ribbons would be so much sweeter. And the shelves...the dress....time to clear a wall! Thank you, as always, for a lovely post! Chrissie x

  5. Very inspiring. I love the pictures and socks on a washing line idea. I've framed my daughter's first pair of shoes. Xx

  13. I love framing's an obsession! The only problem is, that I'm running out of wall space! I love all the ones above! So creative. I too am sentimental, and there are a few favourite things which I'll always hang onto. Nothing wrong with that! :) Have a happy Sunday! Tania ♥
