I have been trying to keep from visiting our local thrift shops, but today I gave in. I was looking for a frame to use to make a tray like the one Cindy at My Romantic Home made. Stop by her blog to see her directions. (I tried to put a link directly to that post, but it didn't work. Just click on the highlighted words here and check out her post from Tuesday.) I also have a link in my sidebar to her because I visit her blog everyday. Cindy's blogging story is pretty amazing. She started like we all did, writing a little about what we like to do or our families and our hobbies and interests. But her blog really took off! She has had over a million visitors! She has decorated her rented apartment in a lovely, shabby chic style and it has even been featured on HGTV's "Rate My Space." She always has great ideas and the photographs are lovely.

So I have my frame. I need to put the little knobs on the bottom for feet, paint it and decide what I want to put under the glass. Maybe a few vintage hankies I have, or maybe postcards or photos. I will take a picture of it when I am finished. This might take a few weeks, though. I am not very crafty and I am certainly a procrastinator. But this project seems fairly simple, so I may be able to do it.

Oh, by the way, if you haven't already, would you "follow" my blog as it shows on my sidebar? It is a great way to keep track of everyone. Thank you!

Thank you so much for writing about me. I feel very honored! Good luck with your tray and be sure to send me a photo. I'll be doing a post with them all soon!

Beautiful tray! I went over to take a peek. Hmmm, I wonder how I could make one that would fit in with my little cottage's decor.

That sounds like an easy project for you to do. Do you have any postcards from Paris? They would look great. Post a picture when you're finished.
