Pinterest Party Part 2


My daughter, "May May"(left) and her friend, Miranda hosted this
Pinterest party. They knew exactly what they wanted to do.

These old window frames came out of Miranda's house
when they remodeled it.

They had their chicken wire and the frames ready.

They tried staples but that didn't work so
"May May" got the hammer!!!

And hammered and hammered and hammered.

It was a little harder than they thought.
Even "Angel" helped with this Pinterest project!

I just love this!  You can hang pictures or Christmas cards
on it with clothes pins!
I couldn't wait to see it all filled up.
I wanted one of these so bad.

So Miranda and I made a trade!
She wanted a hummingbird cake and I wanted an old frame!
I delivered the cake and she delivered the frame and the best part of it all
is I didn't have to hammer or staple. Her hubby did it for me!!!!!
I didn't have my clothes pins yet so I filled it up with Christmas cards!
"May May" told me that the chicken wire is suppose to show in between
but this worked for me at Christmas! Next there will be pictures on it and it
will be hanging on my wall.
I LOVE it!

Those two gals are so sweet- you have to be so very proud of both of them. Not only the projects that they accomplish , but the very fact that their friendship has survived time shows that they are not selfish or mean natured. They are both beautiful & so much fun. I loved their project too & I also Loved you swap!!!!!!!!! O gosh you cake has me drooling!!!!!!!!!!! :-)

Val, looks like the girls did a great job, and you made a good deal as well. I saw something similar at a craft show and they had inserted part chickn wire on one side of the frame, and a painted chalkboard paint on the other so you could write on it. OH why does my house not have enough wall space??? That cake looks yummy and is so pretty.

I am addicted to Pinterest. I even have it on my phone. I have so many boards that now I'm having trouble keeping them straight! I just love it. sounds like such a fun idea to have a pinterest party. I think I may do that and invite everyone to the house.
