Friday Find: DIY



This year the gifts that I struggled the most for were the Grandmas... there is not a lot they need or want. So I picked up these pretty ornate frames from Marshalls and printed out a fun quote about "Grandma's House".  It's a cute way to gift and personalize a picture frame, and can be used for anyone loved one. Not to mention these quotes speak the truth :)  

Oh and do yourself a favor and pick up Taylor Swift's Red.  I've been listening to it on repeat for 2 days straight.  It's all things fun and girly - and makes you feel like a teen...it's fabulous.

You know, I adore picture frames but see them and say 'oh I don't have a photo for that'. Why do I need one?! I always forget they can be used this way! Thanks for the reminder.

I love the housewares you can find at Marshall's....I once bought a mug that says you sexy little thing. My mom shook her head and gave me a weird look. Whatever, at 5am looking like death has come over me.,.if that's what it takes to make me laugh so be it hahaha.

Maya {CharminglyStyled} said...

I love this idea! It's so personal and unique, my grandma would love this idea!

Also, I've heard lots of good things about Red, so I might have to give it a listen. I'm not a huge Taylor fan, but she has some songs that no one could call bad - they are too catchy!

Xx,
Maya
