Framed

My friend Ruth loved the story I created about her visit to Margell back in June, and particularly the Two Chooks tote bag I'd made to include the scene.

Since the bag was a fairly ephemeral piece for me I offered to give it to her. And then I had an idea.

I printed out a copy of the photo featuring the bag, sized to fit one of the small boxframes I have in stash, then positioned the bag (and a book on knitting farmyard animals I'd made to go with it) between the photo and the front of the frame:
Close up of a box picture frame containing a photo of a modern miniature scene, and a miniature knitting bag and book included in front of the photo.
This gives my non-miniaturist friend a way to display the bag which includes the back story, rather than it potentially getting lost in the back of a cupboard.
A box picture frame containing a photo of a modern miniature scene, and a miniature knitting bag and book included in front of the photo.
Brilliant! (If I say so myself...)

Indeed. I was looking at such frames just 2 days ago and thinking how sad that they are not quite deep enough. I have no brilliants, me.

Brilliant you is, and full of humour! Crikey mate, this is one of your better ideas - among your many brilliant innovative ideas. Ruth is going to love this!
