5 Years Later.........

I bought this custom mat and frame 5 years ago from a company that does specializes in custom special occasion mats.  I bought it to put wedding pictures in.  But I never did.  Instead it sat empty.  In my bedroom.  For.5. years!
So, while I was cleaning and organizing in our master bedroom I came across this frame again and decided it was finally time to put it to use.  I decided to do family pictures instead of wedding pictures and I LOVE how it turned out.  I also surprisingly love the combination of b&w, sepia, and color photos!
And the hearts cut in the corners for wedding photos work really well with pictures of us and our sweet baby :)  In the caption box I wrote:  "And Baby Makes Three.
I put it on top of my china hutch with a carved elephant from African and two vases.  I like walking by and seeing pictures of my sweet family :)
The full view

I have been finding cool things in my bedroom to use around the house! Who knew I had so many hidden treasures! First this and then my new(ish) quilt! :)
