I have been busy with painting, cleaning and moving.
Not for myself, but for my daughter to her new house, for my son to his new house and for a rental condo.
Inevitably once I had everything ready to go out of my the door, (such as screwdriver, drill, rags, cleaning products, paint roller, frog tape, painting pole to name a few), the one thing I seemed to always have to go back for was the correct key to the unit I was going too.
So of course when it came to deciding what project to share with you today, I thought of this one.
It was a gift for a cherished donor to a community project.
Yes the key ingredient was (no it’s not chocolate but good guess):
the key used at the opening ceremony.
Framing the photograph and newspaper announcement would have looked fine by themselves. But as soon as the key was added it changed from “good” to “over the top”.
(Now my life would have been a whole lot easier if this had been a small, lightweight key but as it so happens it was heavy and 16 x 40 inches. This was a large frame!)
Adding character and personality to a framed photograph might only require one small or large object relating to the subject matter.
When you find the right object, you find the key ingredient!
Have you ever baked something and forgot the key ingredient?
