As followers of my blog realise, I struggle mightily each late August through September with ragweed allergies. It’s been so since my middle child turned one year old in 1994. Oddly, of the three children, he is the only one who also suffers badly from same allergy. I’ve discovered this year that our home raised grassfinished beef broth either drank alone or with finely chopped onions and a pinch of powdered garlic really hits the spot.
Last summer, we took down the old horse barn behind our house and salvaged as much lumber as possible. Built in 1899, it had far outlived its usefulness and had become, not only an eyesore, but unsafe as well. Jeff McCotter used some of the planks and timbers to build a stunning platform bed, as well as, these beautiful picture frames. I finally got around to taking some old glass to Hometown Hardware and having glass cut for them, then i finally ordered and received the frame turn buttons to hold the photos in and the hangers, then finally cut foam board pieces for backing. Then FINALLY, this morning, assembled the whole affair. If you had frames made like i did, would you want them to come back with glass, backing, turn buttons and hanger already installed? or would you prefer gathering the materials and doing those parts yourself?
