These are a few of my fa-vor-rit thiiiings

My room! I cleaned it! Well, there is still a huge... copious... collosal... amount of stuff in there, but it is CLEAN! I feel like zooming through it in my fluffiest socks!

I'm the proud new owner of these brooches; they make me happy. Thrifted of course. 1 is funny, 1 is pretty (and it cleaned up much better than it is there. woops.).

AND this piece of art (print) of the 'Blue Boy' which I want to give to Ron. The reason being one day when I was doing some history homework he saw a picture of Henry the somethingth (or someone) and thought it was the "picture from the icecream". So we looked up the icecream... I guess there was a blue boy icecream brand in Manitoba when he was growing up. Either the age difference is a factor here or they didn't have it in Alberta :P

So anyways, that is him, The Blue Boy...

The frame is gross though. I need help Susie. It has the inner wood frame and then a fairly thick piece of glass that is not the right size and clunks around in there, followed by the ugly black part.

And this is the back, so I can't really do much with that, can I ?! What would you do, Susie - no, let me rephrase that - what should I do? Is there a simple fix?
And another thing I'm liking right now:

Now let me just put some fresh sheets on the bed and have a hot shower... mmmm... Goodnight.

hey you found the icecream boy! you're right, that framing is atrocious! you could always repaint the inner frame and cut new glass for it or even buy a crappy ikea frame. Looks like the print will be glued down pretty securely to the backing but you could always put some foamboard at the back to finish it nicely...If I was there I could work something out for you...
