You get something in your mind and you know you want it.
So you wait and you look and then there is a local online auction and one of the lots has the thing that you want.
And you are the winning bidder. And the winning bid for all of the items was so low you can hardly believe it, so you sell the other items, but you keep the one thing you wanted and you bring it home and hang it on your wall.
You aren't quite sure how you want to decorate it so you pull out your collection of old photos and add some of them. Then you clip on an old clothes pin just for good measure, because you never know when you might want to add something else.
Then just when you are ready to stand back and call it a day,
because you are just enjoying its simplicity, you decide it might need one more thing , and you remember that you haven't hung that great burlap wreath that you won last year from Top This Top That. You can read all about it here.
So, a simple find gets a simple new life.
P.S. Have you ever noticed how hard it is to photograph things on walls that don't get a lot of light?
