~~Putting My Great Finds to Use~~



Remember when I posted (bragged) about the good deals scored at the Peacock Antiques warehouse sale and the out of the way antiques store a few weeks ago?  The frames have been calling me, and I've put them to good use housing some handmade collages I've made.  The one piece I also included some of the antique hardware I was lucky enough to find.  I'm getting (frantically) ready for the Heavenly Scent Herb Farm Summer Faire I do every August, so 2 more pieces down,  several more to go~~~!

Both of these pieces are fabulous. The frames are gorgeous. I like the second one best, love the photo of the family on the porch and the old hardware.

Just back for a visit, I haven't been to you blog in a while. I love this last one, the worn blue frame centered by the family photo, so beautiful, it's my favorite. I've missed being in Michigan since we weren't able to go this year. Off to look around your blog some more. :-)

Blessings!
