Landscape - Birds Eye View

2007
Sunday, November 11

I decided to go up on the roof today to take some pics of our fully grown grass, landscaping and entrance patio, before the winter hits.

In the front yard, the grass has grown in and the trees and shrubs have just lost their leaves to the cool fall temperatures.














At the Entrance of the house the patio welcomes our guests into our home.






In the backyard there are projects started for next year, including the firepit and the yard and deck areas.

Movie Poster Frames

2007
Sunday, November 4

When we were done with digging out the firepit, there was this part of me that was glad, but at the same time, sad, cause I had to find a new project now. That project turned out to be hanging 2 Movie Poster Frame that I purchased for our family room.

I've been collecting movie posters for years. They are actual theatrical size of 27"x41", that you'd find in movie theaters. I've been trying to figure out some kind of frame that would allow me to, not only display posters, but change them out anytime I wanted to. I didn't want it to break the bank though as I've seen displays ranging from 200-1000 dollars.

I finally found an inexpensive solution that was perfect. It's a display frame, for movie posters that only cost 45 bucks. The frame sides are on hinges and flip back for easy access. I found them at displays2go.com called Metal Snap Open Frames. I've also seen them called QuickClip™ Snap Frames.

Firepit excavation is done. Tim and I worked together to get that sucker done today. I even started a fire after we finished in celebration.
