A Sweetheart Silver Sunday...

It only seems right on this final Silver Sunday that I should share my silver frame collection with you. You see, I have a special set of silver frames. Each one has a heart on it or incorporated into its design. This being the weekend before Valentines Day, and the last of this Silver Sunday series, I wanted to be sure you got to see them.
These are frames that I've collected over the years, and they're all different from each other - except that they all have hearts in common. See? Some of them have a heart in their scrollwork or along the outside of the frame, while others have a small heart-shaped charm or token hanging on them.
I have many more, but you get the idea. They make quite an impression when they're all together. For the most part, I scatter them about the house. That way, I spread the love from room to room. Oh, and that last one up there is our entire family in one shot. Like the Bunsens of Prairie Home Companion lore, "...All the women are strong. All the men are good looking, and all the children are above average". Don't we all feel that way about our families? I can tell you I sure do!

I'd like to thank Beth from Gypsy Fish Journal for being such a wonderful hostess. Please be sure to visit her blog to see all the other fabulous Silver Sunday posts. There are so many beautiful places to visit and it may take a bit of time, but believe me, it's worth it to check them all out! Beth has already told us that Silver Sunday (the next edition) will be once held once a month now. I've already decided what I'll share with you next time. See you then!

Oh my gosh, I ***SO*** love that you quoted that line from Prairie Home Companion! I could listen to that for hours!

And yes, your clan does, for the most part (hehehe), look way "above average"!

Great post and photos. :-)

I love the thought you have put into selecting your frames. That is quite unique. I also love to listen to Prairie Home Companion! My daughter took me to a show when they were on tour several years back.

A wonderful collection of frames indeed! Funny... I spent the day helping a friend with decorating and one of the things was to unify her frames!
You have a lovely collection and a lovely family to go with it!
