Free Antique Winter Blog Frame

Hi there.  If you noticed I'm a smidge behind on my blog, you should check out Real Life Megan.  She's a cold mess!  This holiday season completely crept up on me this year.  I've hardly decorated our snow-covered yellow farmhouse and haven't baked a single cookie.  Not one.  While my waistline is appreciative, my kids aren't quite as grateful.  And as long as I'm confessing things, I might as well just throw it out there that I may or may not have possibly led my children to believe that their Elf on the Shelf got injured while they were playing with him- which is why he is slow to move around or do fancy Pinterest-worthy stunts.  It's just that kind of year.  I've accepted it.  Actually, I take that back.  I have full-on embraced it.  Because, you know what?  Sometimes we just need to let go of those high expectations, hold onto our dear ones, eat store-bought cookies, and just feel grateful for the things we have done right and the magic that is already around us.

In case you get ambitious though, here's a lovely little blog frame for you to customize and post.  (That sweet little wreath bit I used to decorate this antique frame was drawn by Laura of My Sweet Rose.)  Enjoy this little freebie, but most of all, enjoy this holiday season!

X's & O's-


  1. Beautiful frame! And YES to feeling grateful for what we already have. Happy Holidays.

  3. Hi There,

    I used your header and viewed the turutial and I was wondering if you could tell me how to stretch it out on my blog. Thanks!

  4. I love this frame, it is so cute. I used one of your headers for my blog and I just wanted to thank you and to let you know how much I appreciate and adore it.

  6. Oh! Everything here is so adorably cute, twee and kitsch. I may explore into the scary abyss of creating my own headers and other cute things in the New Year!

    I'm especially liking this one!

  9. I am gonna have to say I am VERY new to the whole blogging thing, but I am so glad I found Shabby Blogs, even if I am still learning how to apply your designs (:

  10. You are very talented and I love the colors you choose as they are so light and happy which is something I really need as I am dealing with multiple Chronically painful illnesses that keep me down more than nort here lately.

    You can find me at my pain-filled niche on the web at

    I am just a beginning blogger who tries to create beauty in spite of my physical pain.
    I know people are tired of listening to me rant about my pain so I am going to be taking my blog in a new direction. I will be hosting a Card making contest weekly.and I am thinking of adding a Crafter's Swap to my blog. But I would also like to add my Life Story so that others can come to know the Real me not just my online persona..I am a you see what you get kind of gal with a huge heart the size of Texas.

    So I would like to ask for your personal opinion on something. Once I get up and running would you be willing to create some Shabby Chic Wolf items for free for my Crafters Swap once a month? Please reply to my main email which is Thank you for your time and attention to this matter.

    I am so glad I found your sight from Pinterest! and your friends site FPTFY :oD
