I Won Something!

Guess what??  

I won a giveaway!  


 I never win anything.  This is a BIG DEAL!  For all you who enter all those cool blog giveaways and never win, let this be a lesson for you.  It can happen.  Winning, I mean.  

Stacey hosted a giveaway for a print of your choice from Sam Kelly's shop.  Stacey has an old door hanging out in her living room too.  This makes her pretty cool in my book.  Although, her door is prettier than our door.  It's probably not recommended to compare doors.  It always ends badly.  

I was looking everywhere for a cool frame for this new adorable print.  Couldn't find anything reasonably priced.  I decided to take things into my own hands.  We had a few frames in our garage from our garage sale that no one bought.  

I took this drab frame that I would never use looking like this, hence the $1 price sticker left over from the garage sale.   No one even wanted it for a buck.  

I sanded it.  Painted it.  Applied crackle glaze to give it that antique effect. Painted it again.  

This is how it turned out!  I'm pretty happy with it.  
And check out the adorable print I picked out from Sam's Etsy Shop.
You can get one too, if you like!

I like winning things. It is fun. 

In other news, you know that BRAND NEW case Syd got that I wrote about the other day??  Remember?  

Just wanted to let you know that the case is durable.  Her phone flew off our car and tumbled onto the pavement.  The phone wasn't damaged at all.  The case looks beat up, but what do you expect from falling off a moving vehicle?  That'll do, Case, that'll do.
