Old Frame Love


Don't you just love old frames? My favorite frames are the ones with either the oak or the maple leaves on the corners of them. I have only one such frame, but I'm hoping to come up with some
creative way of making my own without doing any carving. But I'll save that for a later post!

The weather here is windy and rainy. Pratically all of the leaves are off the trees now. DH had to go down to the beach and drag our board walk up to higher ground, as the waves are crashing
midway up it. We lost a portion of the boardwalk last year and don't want that to happen again this year! This is a view from the waters edge looking up to our home.

Do you have a sense of humor? Oh, I hope you do! I just couldn't resist when I saw this Bad
Boy pumpkin  on my friend Joycee's Granny Mountain post this morning. She was kind enough to let me borrow the photo to share with you.I bet you've never seen a pumpkin mooner before. I  sure haven't. I laughed and laughed! I hope it gives you a little chuckle too!
On another subject, did you notice I have over 100 followers now? I want to plan a give away to
celebrate! I will announce what it will be next week. I can't wait-I've always wanted to do a drawing.Since my SIL is arriving today , I need to get busy cooking and all that good stuff. I'm making chicken pot pie, carrot salad, fried apples, and blueberry muffins. So I'd better get on it!
 I hope you all have a wonderful weekend-Kimberly


  1. That pumpkin mooner was just too cute!
    I like the old frames very much, and have a collection that I use for my needlework. I'm always on the lookout at the Salvation Army and elsewhere for interesting old frames.

  2. Love the frames and the mooning pumpkin boy!!!!

    Too funny.

  3. The wind is blowing and the leaves are all off the trees and one is in danger of getting his pants blown off? Does that pretty much...ahem...cover it? Ha! You're a nut.

    I do love those old frames. One used to be able to find them everywhere for a song and now it's impossible. If I find one even close to a song, I'm going to grab it. I'll be interested in your tutorial!

  4. LOL on the pumpkin! Those frames are neat. Enjoy SIL's visit - the food sounds incredible!

  5. Congratulations on 101 followers! Good for you!
    I love those frames too. I grabbed a couple for myself back when I could find them for a decent price.
    I like hearing about your life on the lake.
    Keep up the good work!

  6. Love the top photo and of course the pumpkin 'moon'..haha. Congrats on your 100, that was fast work for sure! Have a good visit! xo

  7. The leaf frames are pretty. I like little ornamental details like that.

    Looks like someone left a trail of flowers on your boardwalk!

    I love the pumpkin mooner--haha!

    Congratulations on 100 followers! I've been stuck on 91 forever! hahaha! :D

  8. I love those old frames! And Mr. Pumpkin Mooner has been around facebook too. Pretty funny! Enjoy your dinner with your son. It sounds really delicious. :)

  9. The pumpkin guy is so funny, my husband laughed and laughed. My son wanted me to make one with our pumpkins and my daughter was saying oh no you aren't!!

    People are so talented. I wondered if your weather was going to be bad. I have been reading the weather reports.
    Your frames are very pretty. I like your board walk too.
    I hope the weather doesn't get too crazy.

  10. The mooning pumpkin guy is pretty priceless!

    I love your antique picture frames! They are simply stunning... I've seen similar ones in magazine or online but never in person.

    Happy fall,

  11. A pumpkin mooner! -giggles- Yes, I think I've seen a pic of one before. But this one is ..... very, very cheeky. LOL!!!

    Wondering how you haul that board walk up to higher ground? Seems it would be very heavy. Perhaps you winch it up, by pulling it, with a Jeep or truck???

    Enjoy your company!

  12. Well, that sure is one forward pumpkin man! And those old frames are just gorgeous - I don't think I've ever seen ones like those, they're so darling!

  13. Oh my goodness! I just love the pumpkin mooner. That is just too funny.

  14. I love where you live!
    It is so beautiful.

    I don't think I have ever seen "old frames" like yours. So unique.'s funny!

  15. Hope you enjoyed your chicken pot pie. It's one of my favorites. Have a good week Kimberly!

  16. Thanks for a good hearty chuckle!

  17. Hi Kimberly,
    Your pumpkin mooner is hilarious!!!
    I love those old frames with the maple leaves and oak, but I have never seen one anywhere I have ever shopped.
    Hugs, Cindy

  18. Love, love the old frames with leaves! Here they are very costly in the antique stores.

    The pumpkin mooner is great! Love it!

  19. Oh my word. That is sooo funny!

    And I love the frames.. I have one put away, now I know what I'll do with it. I love the leaves. Of course, the impact won't be quite as strong with just one, but...

    Congrats on your following! This is a great place to visit so it's no surprise to me!

    Blessings, Debbie

  20. Too funny....and some big mooners also

    I love those frames...I think my grandmother had some of them and I haven't seen them in years.

    Congrads on your followers.

  21. How cute the mooning pumpkin man! Love your picture frames. Leaves gone already, mine haven't began to fall but I'm sure I will have a pile to rake soon. Hugs!!

  22. I laughed out loud at the mooning pumpkin man. I can say that I've never seen one before!

    Congratulations on reaching the 100 follower mark! I'm looking forward to your giveaway.

  23. I think the Bad Boy Pumpkin is hilarious! Thanks for sharing it!
