Fire and Ice

If you are looking at this you are probably thinking this doesn't look like fire and ice at all. I created this for my partner in the shoebox swap. I am posting it here because she is not a follower, so I think it is safe even though it is supposed to be a surprise. In this particular swap we get a list of words or phrases and you are to make or buy something to go with each word. On of the phrases was fire and ice. I am thinking most people are going to be thinking way different from me. "Fire and Ice" happens to be the title of a poem by one of my favorite poets Robert Frost. So, I decided to frame the poem. Her home decor is browns and greens with a rustic feel, so I went with the browns, greens, and crackle paint. A few flowers and a little bling finishes it out. I love these $1.00 wooden frame at Michaels. I have used several of them. I try to keep a couple on hand for quick gifts. Hope you like it!
