If you follow me on instagram, then you already know part of this story (if you can even call it that).
Basically, I posted these 2 pics on instagram [one & two] of a collection of caricatures of my sister and I that I have been hoarding for the last 27 years and decided 2013 is the year I finally put them on display. Soooo, when I found this frame at my favorite local antique shop for $30, I knew it was perfect for framing one of the pictures and had to have it (sorry, I don’t know the name of the shop, if you live in Atlanta, it’s on Ponce. The owner is super nice, but uh, I don’t know his name either).
That lady tho, she had to go. I don’t know her, she’s not my friend, so in the trash she went along with that mat – it was dirty and I knew I wouldn’t be reusing it.
It needed a good cleaning but got a semi-good one instead (I’m lazy and trying to clean in all those crevices just wasn’t working for me), and I threw together a quick & easy DIY backing (seriously – super easy, I just cut a piece of carcboard to size and wrapped it in some wrapping paper I already had), but after that it was good to go.
And now I finally have some art over my bed! That space above my bed has been empty for way too long. The picture on the right obviously needs a new frame home as well. That caricature is from 1986 and I’m pretty sure that frame is too.
Oh, and in case you were wondering which one I am in both pics, I’m the lower drawn figure in both caricatures. I guess since I’m the little sister, I get drawn lower then my big sis. I’m okay with that.
