All framed up.

Ashton made me a set of truly beautiful note cards for my birthday a few years ago.  Each one has a custom designed fabric dress.  They were, quite simply, too beautiful to use as note cards (I didn't want to give them away!).

I'd been wanting to frame them for a long time, but knew that it would have to be custom and didn't want to spend the money.  Then the stars aligned (read: Michael's was having a 60% off custom framing sale and my Mom came into town and brought with her great ideas) and my long-awaited idea finally became a reality.

Now I've just got to figure out where to hang them.  Someday if we have a daughter I'll hang them in her room, but for now I am thinking of hanging them in the basement near Blake's framed matchbox car collection as as sort of masculine/feminine comparison. 

I'm absolutely smitten by them and couldn't be more thrilled to finally be able to showcase them in my home.

Thanks again, Ashton!


  1. Those are beautiful! Ashton is amazing. I love how they turned out!

  2. @Lindsey- Seriously. Ashton has more creativity in her pinky than I do in my whole body.

    @Abby - Thanks! I'm really excited about them :)
