Framed again!

What is it with me and old frames? (Or old pictures, or trays, or....... :)
Here are some of today's yard sale finds! I only went to a couple, but did well!

An old tray, only four dollars! And it's really painted, not stenciled on!


The seller said this old piece used to hold a beveled mirror, but that she had broken it. I just loved it so bought it as is..... When I got it home, it hit me! I'll put cork behind it and use it above my craft area..... it already has a couple of old hooks at the bottom..... It's quite large, as you might be able to tell from the very first photo.



Love the pretty flowers painted on it.










A couple of old buckets in robin's egg blue. Not sure if they'll go in the garden or hold flowers indoors.........
The sweet angelic picture was only $2.... I haven't decided yet where it will reside, but I loved the colors!
I have more to show but will share in another post, perhaps tomorrow!

Becca,
Good finds. I like the idea of the cork board. If you didn't want to do that you could have a mirror put in it, I have done that with old frames.
The thrift store I go to always has tons of pictures and frames. In fact if I have a picture I need a frame for I get it there.
I like the tray, they are getting harder to find.

Becca, I forgot to tell you about the beveled mirror frame, I love it. The flowers are so pretty and I wouldn't change a thing about it. Your idea of a corkboard is wonderful and if you ever change your mind, like Nancy Jo said, you could have a mirror put in it. That was a unique find. I think pretty things just jump out for you and say we want to go home with you!!

OMGosh! My dream outing would be to go to yard sales or thrift stores with you! You find the most incredible stuff. That tray, buckets, assorted frames, and picture are awesome, but my fave is the frame you'll use in your craft room. Everything you found is just super. I also love your gift from the UK. xoxo

You are really gifted at staging your pictures. My favorite find is the bottom one of the cherubs- I adore that, and so lovely draped in lace!!!

Judy said...

I wish I was so lucky, I think I need to follow you around. Good ideas too.

You got some beauties. I love old frames, and I keep buying them.
It's FUN!
Don't you love it when you find great stuff for a little money?
Have a wonderful weekend!
