hope jesus isn't mad at me...

for throwing him away. see, the hubs and i hit up goodwill this weekend, and i got this GORGEOUS frame for all of $2.12.
see, isn't it pretty?! don't you love how the embellishment ON the frame matches the ironwork in the picture IN the frame?!

it was a HORRID dusty gold color....i thought it actually had dust on it...but no, it was just an ugly color. and inside...a watercolor-ish picture of mary and jesus, and around it someone had used bright blue tempera paint to splatter a design, i guess to enhance it?

i have no idea, and if i hadn't been SO eager to get this monstrosity painted to my liking, i'd have remembered to take a "before" photo. but i didn't...so here's my after =)

also, stay tuned this afternoon for an awesome announcement that will put a little spring in your step!

I love the frame! By the way, I don't think Jesus will be mad at you for throwing His picture away. It sounds like it wasn't a very flattering picture, and no one (not even Jesus) likes an unflattering picture of themselves! :)
