Pinned inspiration

Recently while browsing through Pinterest I came across this

I can't find the exact post this belongs to but it was linked to a blog called Life is a Beautiful place to be.

Anyway, I really liked this idea and wanted to do something similar. Well, my similar really didn't turn out looking anything like this but I still liked it.
I started by creating a bit of an outline on paper and placing random things that I found in my stash in different squares.  I found some fabric that had all kinds of cute little Americana pictures so I cute several out.


The original plan was to put this on a pillow cover and up until the very end I was sticking with that plan. When I was looking for something else I happened to find a thrift store frame I had in the closet. I wondered if this piece would fit in the frame so I decided to try it on for size.

Forget about the pillow, it's going in the frame.

With my lack of creativity and imagination, I am always amazed that people think along these lines...and create something substantial. Very nice.
