Pocket frames

The most rewarding challenge is coming up with an idea that is new and unique-

(at least something I haven’t seen before!) 🙂

One day I thought I’d like to design a frame with a pocket.


It’s just a fun way to display items you love!

It’s kind of like a vertical vignette of sorts…


While planning the early Spring mantel, I knew I needed something to sit on the ledge on either side…


I was looking to keep the look natural and neutral, a clean look that combined the old and new!

I thought that this would be a perfect time to display a small collection of antique books and reading glasses.


Displaying them in an old frame with a modern fabric makes them a bit more interesting!


The nice thing about these pocket frames is their versatility-

You can add and subtract items until you get the look you want!

You can even change the fabric seasonally….THAT is exactly what I did!

Check out these Fall Pocket Frames, and get directions to make your own!

Unlike this frame project, the Fall project was one that didn’t come easy- I really needed patience as I thought outside the box!

I waited until I had an idea that was new and unique- I didn’t give in to something familiar…Much like life!


Galatians 6:9 ~
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. 

Always growing, how about you?                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Heidi
