Things I'm Loving: Picture Frames

{Fun frame to match the guest bedroom}

I don't know about you, but I have a serious picture frame fetish.  I just can't resist a cute frame in a fun color or design.  It does not matter how rushed I am, every time I go to Target, I have to take a run down the picture frame aisle - just to look.  I do not know what it is about them that makes me weak in the knees, but it most likely stems from  my childhood office supply fetish and my love for anything that has to do with organizing or decorating.  I love that a frame can really enhance the tone of a picture - make that captured moment even sweeter or add some sass to a simple black and white photo.  Since my family is scattered all around the world, it is really important to me to have pictures of my loved ones around the house, so as soon as I have some spare time, I will be putting together a "photo wall".  I would like to get a bunch of similar frames in different sizes and shapes to put up some of my favorite family photos down our long hallway.  This project, however, is going to take some hunting to find the perfect frames, which of course I am not complaining about one bit!  So if you are ever in a store and happen to see a blonde girl just staring aimlessly at the picture frame selection with a huge, stupid grin on her face, don't be scared, it's just me pondering the perfect frame  . . . but feel free to say hi!  In the meantime, here are some of my current favorite frames around the house.
