Choose life. Life is wonderful.

 The most complicated task today is finding a way to live a simple life. 
W. A. Nance

I concur with this. There is only one of me in my house but I have so much stuff. I am trying to cut down and make things more simple but it is a very slow process. Generally my life is pretty simple. I don't do anything very sophisticated. I am happy for a simple life with P:-). But I do need to simplify my clothing and my school paperwork. Easier said than done.

Noah's Ark

I am a lover of all things Noah's Ark. I bought this framed print at the Salvation Army Store for 4$

 I decided that I wanted the frame gold, to match the bedroom I am planning. Unfortunately when I removed the print from the frame I broke a corner of the glass. How annoying!

Cracked top right hand corner of glass.

Cracked glass
I could think of a couple of solutions.

1. Draping something across the corner of the picture to cover the cracked glass.
2. Or doing something on all the corners to disguise it.

So I decided to give it some thought while I sprayed the frame.

I sprayed the frame gold, replaced the picture and glass very carefully and hung the picture in my bedroom

The picture is hung over an old mirror that I picked up from the Salvation Army Store for $10 and still has to be done up.

The crack in the top right hand corner wasn't terribly noticeable but I hung some bluish beads over the corner.

I plan to do the mirror gold and put my Noah's Ark bits and pieces on the shelves underneath. Gold may seem a bit garish for the mirror, but my bedroom is a room that really needs a lot of work e.g. no cupboard doors, and I am on a very limited budget. So I plan to make a bit of a splash. Watch this space!
