Instant Art!

On a recent trip to Ikea, I came across some items which I thought could be the makings of some instant artwork!
These tiny wooden frames at €1.75 each...
...these lovely gift tags at 70c, which look like they were drawn in ink...

And voilà!!

More dust catchers for my black and cream water closet!
At the risk of over doing it now, I think I should leave well enough alone in this room! 
You can have too much of a good thing!
And because I couldn't resist these little frames, I bought them in this colour also...
So I thought what else could I put in something which has a mount the size of a postage stamp?
Why of course, a postage stamp!
With philately being one of my many hobbies, I had these little beauties ready for framing.
They are from a Flora and Fauna series from the year Mr. Auburn and I were born.
Just one problem, four stamps, three frames, think it's back to Ikea for me!
To be continued......


  1. I love the black and white theme. Is Ikea far from where you live? It's more than an hour away from my cottage, so I'd better not forget a frame next time I visit!

  2. Great idea! It is sort of Alice in Wonderland and fun.

    I love the stamps! I love forward to see what you do with them.

    I love ikea. On the weekend, it's about half hour from us.

  3. I like these little pieces of art work and the stamps are gorgeous. I'll have to check back to see them in their little frames.

  4. How perfect! I spy a trip to Ikea in the very near future.
