Thrifty Thursday – Frame of Mind

Okay, is the title too corny for you? Well, I do hope you like the thrift. I found this beautiful lithograph nicely set in a large 36″ by 30″ frame at my local thrift store. I like the print and I like the frame, just not together.

Shutterfly was having  a sale on enlargements. So, I did what I do and ordered my favorite shot from this summer (Griff playing on the covered bridge). It took some work to get the original print out of this frame. It was mounted very professionally. That’s what made the frame look all the better. Here’s the finished project…tada!

Frame was $10.00, print was $3.00 – total = $13.00. I still have the lithograph, I need to find the right frame for that next!

What did you thrift this week?

Happy Thrifting!

    Love that pic! It looks perfect in that frame. I’ve never used shutterfly. May have to check that out. I usually use Apple, but they take forever to get your prints to you. Have you had good luck (quality-wise and time-wise) with shutterfly?

    I do like shutterfly – the quality of the prints seems to have gotten better since they purchased kodakgallery.com (the old ofoto.com). But it does take a while to get enlargement prints (maybe a week or more). I am usually really happy with the result though.
