My long awaited shrine.........................

I bought this frame years ago from a lovely etsy seller....I've always had the intention to make it into a special tribute/shrine to my sweet Mom who passed a few years ago. I miss her each and every day. I have no words for just how much. I've gathered bits and pieces over the past few years of what I wanted to include.

I had this photo of her holding me when I was a baby, her handwriting is on the back. I'm glad I never rushed this project because each and every element included have come into my possession in just the last couple of years, with the exception of the photo of course.


I've always loved the shabby details on this frame and the fact that it's rather deep suited my needs perfectly! I glued down some of my favorite wallpaper as a background then started adding some of my favorite pieces that I own....after all, this is a special piece!

A vintage scapular.......

The other side of the scapular...it's draped over the top of the frame.

I feel so blessed to have this special photo of my Mom holding me as an infant......she was beautiful inside and out!!!!

Have you ever made a "shrine" or special tribute to someone you love? This piece will hang in my newly remodeled studio so that I can see my sweet Mom every day and think of her.
