Progress on U.F.O.s...

So, I've been asked about my wonderful playing cards I showed you here. 
I The Graphics Fairy!  I printed her three graphics on photo paper (ideal thickness for cards from the deck, b.t.w.) and found some frames from IKEA.

As my game-themed room is ever-evolving, it takes time for just the right inspiration to hit.  I was searching for the "perfect" ribbon to hang the 3 frames, but never found it.  Almost settled for gold wired ribbon, but held off.

God bless Hobby Lobby for having a 50%-off sale when I need one!  I had my 40% coupon in hand, but found the iron wall decor was half-off! WOOT!

But even better than that, I ran into MY chess pieces, for yes, 50%-off, as well.

Had to "fix" the knight & king:

I love it when a plan (starts to) come together...

Now, here's the progress on the side wall I showed you here ...


  1. Love, love, love your game room and what you did with the card images from TGF. Nicely done!


  2. Everything looks great!!! Don't you love it when you hit an awesome sale like that? Great finds! Thanks for linking this up to Brag Monday.

  3. Thank you for such kind words, Jeanine & Karen. Graphics Fairy -- you rock! Ephemera rules my world... I'm pretty sure I was Victorian in a previous life ☺!

  4. Your room is so creative! I love what you did with the cards.


What do you think?
