I wasn't sure where exactly this should go...since it's not exactly clothing or wall art.  And yet, it is.  So, if I posted this in the wrong place, I apologize in advance.  Do you have someone in your life that is super difficult to get gifts for???  That would be my brother for me.....luckily I'm a garage sale addict who always buys things for "later" ideas.....anyways, I'd found a small (and I do mean small - my 9 yr. old niece wouldn't fit) t-shirt with Morrison's mug shot for .25 at some such sale and decided to hang on to it for a recon idea later.....along comes brother's birthday and as usual, he wants nothing....so...I whip out the shirt (he's a HUGE fan), matted it with misc. Morrison quotes in various fonts and framed it.  I thought it turned out well and he loved it Smiley.  Here it is......Thanks for looking!

Before (with the nosy nellie, Figi):

and After (please excuse the mess):


Blessed be.
