Who doesn't want their shanty to be a bit savvy, a bit clever, creative, a bit sensible, sharp and ingenious?! But hey, let's face it, most of us are living on a shoestring. Here's how I'm doing it my way, making our nest a Savvy Shanty.

Iron Butterfly

A quick little project to bring a little taste of spring to these cold winter days. This is a frame I picked up at a garage sale last fall. It's been sitting in my to-do pile. I knew what I wanted to do with it moment I grabbed it. It was a side by side frame. Time to mix it up a bit.
I wanted to have it hang rather than sit for a couple of reasons. First, most houses only have so many places to "sit" photos and with the rising popularity of gallery walls, I thought I could kill two birds with one stone. First I attached a loop of burlap to make a hanger but when held up,the frame wouldn't quite lay flat. I grabbed a small plate that was purchased at Home Depot, drilled a couple of holes and screwed the plate to the back, across the hinge area. This made the whole thing hang nice and flat.

 A couple pieces of some vintage inspired scrapbook paper of lepidopteras. A nice little sign of spring during these cold winter days.

Hope you enjoy! Let me know what you think!
