Pumpkin Pie

At this point I haven't put much on the walls in my place, except three mirrors, my degree, and a cubby/organizer thing above my desk. But the weekend before last I went to my favorite vintage store, Feathers & Twigs. I found this awesome original painting of a little girl and her orange cat. It made me think of my kitty Pumpkin, that I lost almost exactly a year ago. Of course I took it home (for $6).

I wasn't crazy about the frame; it just wasn't chunky enough. Here's the painting with the original frame behind it:

And the Virserum frame I picked up from Ikea (it also comes in dark brown and costs $10.99).

Of course, since it's from Ikea, there is some assembly required. All you have to do is install two little clips on the back and wrap the included wire around them. Then you can hang the picture from the wire. Easy.

Here's the painting on the wall. Of course the mat in the frame covers up some of the painting. But I still like the way it looks. 

Oh yeah, and I put in the hallway. In case you couldn't tell! Every time I see it I think of Pumpkin, which is very nice. 

Now I only have, like, a billion other spaces on the wall to fill. Yay!


  1. awwwwhhh, I like it! Very sweet. I think of Pumpkin often, and you even more often ;-)

  2. I need to get some more pics up! I'm supposed to organize my pictures soon since I'm organizing my under-bed storage area, but I haven't yet...

  3. I can't figure out how to install the clips on the back of the frame! How did you do it? I know thw small hole in each is for the wire, but how do I attach the clips to the frame?

  4. Hey mindy. You just slide the little clips along the edges of the cardboard. If that doesn't make sense let me know and I'll post some images.
