My son, Andy, painted this pillowcase for Mother's Day when he was in 1st grade.  I knew I wanted to display it somehow but not in any way that would possibly damage the artwork he so lovingly created.  I got this picture frame at a yard sale for free and left the dings and dents just as they are!  It had the ugliest deer print, circa 1970?, with the most putrid orange and brown mats.  Two cans of cheap Wal-mart spray paint, a piece of blue poster board and my X-acto knife and viola!  Of all the art in my home, this is my favorite by far and it will dry rot on the wall before I'll take it down. :-)

Oh, I'm not sure if you'd notice but he accidently got a spot of blue out of place on the pillowcase.  He said, "Mommy, that's just a petal that fell off the flower."  So sweet!
