Looking at architecture in a new way.....


I love the idea of making framed wall art with pictures of letters in architecture or every day items. I found this site and I'm thinking of ordering. Here is another site. I suppose I could make this myself if I start looking at buildings in a new way. I usually have my camera ready.

I think this would be a great wedding gift. If you know of any other sites that have these, please let me know.

That's a cool idea. My son can see things like that with his camera. It's a challenge for me.....((hugs)) Rosie

Good Evening Nan,
I love the architecturial letters. I don't see too many of those around here, but I have seen some on t.v. before. I think it is a neat idea. Since I'm not the crafty type, I can't give you any ideas on anything. Hope you had a great weekend. Our daughter is feeling better. This morning she felt a little sickly still, so I kept her home. She will be going back to School tomorrow for sure. LOL. I have been down in the dumps today and didn't have the will power to do a post. I'm not even sure if I will tomorrow either. Take care my friend and have a great evening. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

My niece did this w/ her married name. My job was to find a frame for the 5 initials. Lucky me, found it at BB&B. She took the pics herself. Pretty cool look. Christy
