My sister-in-law gave me an old book of slightly altered nursery rhymes years ago.I'm not normally one to take apart books, but this was really an old marketing brochure, not something that I would read to my children. I was expecting my oldest at the time, and intended to frame some Mother Goose prints for the nursery. I got a little sidetracked, and never did it. He's twelve now, and doesn't want nursery rhyme pictures in his room so much.
I re-discovered the book recently while looking through a stack of old photos, and realized that they might be the perfect accessory for the kid's bathroom. At the craft store, I found some $5 matted frames, and set to work.
The finished pictures look great in the kid's bathroom, since many of them have little poems about bathing and washing. They're whimsical enough for a children's bathroom, and yet the black frames lend an air of sophistication appropriate for a room that guests also use.
I like the way they look so much that I'm going to buy more frames for the other pictures. There's one that would be perfect in the laundry room!
Sometimes good things really do come to those who wait!
