More frames: when is it too much of a good thing?

moreframes141210When my wife sets her mind to something, she goes “full in.” I’m so glad she is not a gambler.

It started as a simple project; she wanted an antique frame. So began the process of shopping estate sales, and bidding on online auction sites like our local EBTH and eBay. Eventually the looking turned to buying, then the driving to pick them up and shipping (ugh!) … oh and check out the packaging job on the one below!

My thought is to “resell” them, but then Brenda may have other ideas. Before long we (and our kids!) will run out of wall space. So much for eventually moving on to a sailboat.
