i have a problem...

Hi, my name is Maggie and I'm addicted to picture frames.  It was getting bad.  Even the hubby said, "Honey, I think you might have a problem."  And he promised in front of God and everyone to be nice to me even if I'm being crazy.  It's that bad.  

And then I went to this church rummage sale where frames were 50 cents and $1, and this is what I came home with:




Look at that great mirror with the green frame in the back.  Oh, it's going to be gorgeous!




Lord, please give me strength.  As the daughter of a borderline-hoarder, I should know better, right?




But!  Inspired by the success of my chippy chalkboard frame here, I've begun transforming all those old frames into this:









Thinking about listing them on etsy.  What do you think?

I guess as long as you are producing masterpieces/sharing your crafts out of the pile you bring home and saving a few for yourself is not hoarding...besides when you are full of ideas you really tend to stock-up on materials BUT you have to really make something out of it.....My husband says the same thing when I find a really cheap item i buy lots of it...I guess it is normal for women to have that "rush" when they see good deals.......I dont think it's bad maggie my dear.....Etsy would be a great solution for that!!! Cheer up!!

Keep posting.

Just had to say I love your name! I always though that if I had another girl I would name her Maggie! Since I am way past that, maybe I will save the name if I ever get a new puppy :)

omg, Maggie. I had no idea of this addiction. I love them too. My problem is that I cannot find any in my thrift stores. Can I go shopping at your house on my next visit?
