Two Hunks in a Hardware Frame Upcycle

Here's one way to use up mismatched hardware.  Secretly, I enjoy using power tools- well, not a secret anymore.  The sad part is I can't hold them for very long or use a fair amount of pressure.  The love is there, but the ability is weakened.

I took some of these little shapes and glued them onto a photo frame.  It's an upcycle from a giveaway win during last year's OWOH.  I just took the flowered paper, ribbons, and shiny bits off and painted the frame in copper metallic and black.

Some of these hardware pieces spin; and I think   adding some more hardware will be in order, although it's getting heavy!  I should have put two hunks in those empty spaces.  With so many hunks, how could I narrow the list down?  Whose photos would you select?
We know who Stacy would pick- JD!  Anyone else?

Hi Gloria,

The only thing missing is your artwork. You have done so many cool pieces. I'd love to see you update this with them.

xo,

I am sorry, I love JD ;o) LOL! This frame is so cool and you have gave me a great idea Gloria, thank you! I really think this is wicked!!!! Big Hugs ;o) Just to let you know, I have been having problems commenting, they say error 404, when I go to people's blogs. That's what happened with yours, but now I am finally able to comment ;o)

Thank you so much, Dee. I never think to frame my own work, I should.

Hey, Georgie- your photos crack me up, especially the last few on your blog. I can't comment on your blog, hope you see this. The embedded form doesn't work! Thanks for the invite- hey everyone else get to her blog for the giveaway!

Lucy, I can see your husband in one side and you in the other! TFV!

Stacy, I have no idea what went wrong, I hope it's not going to spread to everyone. They still haven't fixed the embedded form and that's since October.

Thanks so much for liking the frame, and I was just kidding about JD, :)

Thanks everyone!
