I waited and waited for this sale!

Our little local Alco store had these 12 x 12 x 2 WOODEN pieces priced at $9.99 each. Well, I know they always have 40% off sales on 'home accessories' and this is the week!



So I bought the four they had! $5.99 each!


I'm not sure what I'll do with them just yet, but the surface alone is an awesome find. I wish the birds/nests were tucked more in a lower corner and I could add a woman but they are smack dab in the center it appears.

Any suggestions? Or should I leave them as is.......they are kinda cute!

Ohhhh..these are gorgeous! Why not a partial woman in one of the corners? Or sides?? Like half her face...looking wistful...I can see her now...Beautiful!

Hi Darla, I never thought of adding to them, but what a fun idea! You could paint a very transparent woman and see the background through her... Can't wait to see what you do! Hugs, Silke

As soon as I looked at the great pictures you found and read the post I had such a good idea, so I came here and.....
My bloggie friend *Grammie* and I have the same train of thought!! She's just faster (O:
Or even one looking down from an upper branch and the girl standing on the ground looking up...

OH, they are cute as can be...if anything, a simple word on each one might work or....if hung together you could make up a four-word-phrase and hang them side-by-side so the phrase is easily read. Great buy!
