Punxsutawney Phil and Bucks County Frames

In case you hadn't heard, Phil predicted an early spring.

Yeah, right. {she says, staring at three feet of snow outside her bedroom window}   

Anyway, Phil isn't the only good thing coming out of the great state of Pennsylvania these days.  On a recent trip to the land of Etsy, one of my pals showed me a piece she picked up for her living room.  She had been staring at a giant empty space above her fireplace for a couple of years and finally knew she had to do something about it when her six-year old son took note .

"We need some color in here, Mom.  It's totally boring."

So she searched Etsythe place to find fantastic, one-of-a-kind art pieces (among other handmade delights).  She wanted something whimsical and colorful and LARGE...all for a good price.

And she found it.

Whimsical, colorful, large and an amazing value...Bucks County Frames totally delivers. 

I love this one...makes me want to get on my Gary Fisher, pronto.

And this one? It conjures Vermont in July, watching the parade go down Bristol's Main Street. 

I'm so ready for the beach.


I've never been a huge fan of fine art photography for my home, although I think it's a perfect fit for plenty of others. 

It's nice to know that my mind can always be changed.  {Thanks for introducing me  to Bucks County Frames, Michelle!}
