natural wonders

hi beach lovers..
hope everyone had a nice weekend

a few years ago i bought this cavallini & co calendar when it was going out of date with the intention of framing the pages. you might remember this ..it's taken me a while to get around to adding more. i love these antique style sea life prints with french script, and an environmentally friendly way to have some coral in the home.  



i sanded the dark timber colour frames that i bought, painted them with quite a few coats of white paint then cut the prints to fit. 
not sure where these will hang, but for now i like them on our fireplace mantle.
