Shabby Cottage Chic Picture Frame

I enjoyed my yard sale hunt this am. It was very hot and I melted quickly, but I did get some good finds.
It was picture frame day as that is what I found the most of.


This vintage metal frame was in amazing condition. It must be from the 1950's.
  I love the silver metal peaking out from the white finish.


Easel frames are very graceful.  This one also has the old picture wire attached so that it can also be hung from the wall.  Faded black velvet in good condition still covers the back of the frame.  I didn't change the frame a bit.  It was perfect just the way it was.


I didn't like the frame to be empty so I had some fun making a mixed media collage.



Pretty lilac paper, some pearls, a vintage ecru crochet doily and a black and white vintage snap shot were all tucked together.  I added lace and ribbon and stamped a key design on it.  I think it is the key to the hearts of this loving elderly couple.

This is absolutely perfect. You made it look so cute that, if it was me, I couldn't part with it.
