Because I never got around to painting the upstairs, the walls had gone undecorated. Now that it’s time to sell, we are scrambling to make the house look more homey.
First project is the Postcard Collage.
I’ve saved every postcard anyone ever sent me, and I make sure to bring one home everytime I travel.
It was very easy to make- I just used some of that green sticky stuff to arrange the postcards in one of those frames where the glass pops out the front. I didn’t want to glue these on in case someday I’d like to read the backs again.
Second project is the Sand Dollar Shadow Box
I’ve been meaning to make one of these ever since I saw a smaller version on my friend’s bathroom counter. Luckily another friend gave me the 2 natural sand dollars that she brought back from a trip to Nicaragua, and I got 2 more as a favor from a wedding in Florida. I just added the red fabric to match the room and cover the gray that came in the shadow box I bought at Michaels. The box even came with the pearl head pins. I think it fits in well with our semi-tropical bedroom. And you could use the shadow box to display other travel mementos if you aren’t into sand dollars- like ticket stubs, foreign dollars, photos, whatever.
