Times Past

I've been dying to show you
the special gift
I made my niece for her
wedding shower

 I couldn't post it until after the shower
 because that would ruin the surprise!!

We went to the shower this weekend
and Katy now has her special gift
and lots of other wonderful things to start her new life

Katy's shower gift

I titled this "Times Past"
A collection of old photos that tell our family story
I had so much fun working on this project!!
(btw, I'm the little girl on the right)
We are standing outside our Grand Dad's Pub,
The Lord Nelson in Wareham, England

 Katy was thrilled with her vintage piece

She had mentioned how much
she loved all the vintage photos around my home

Here's a look at some of mine

This piece hangs in my guest room

This collection is in my hallway

This one is in my living room

I love having these old photos
around my home...... reminds me of times past

Now Katy has some of her
own to display in her new home

When I bought this frame it was gold and not too attractive
but after a coat of Annie Sloan's "OLD WHITE" Paint and a little distressing
I had a beautiful  vintage frame!!

The clocks are from my Pinterest page
the round one is attached to an old CD
I also added some vintage keys on the bottom line
I think these items add vintage charm to the collection of photos

On the back of the frame I attached this page which explains
the photos and our family story 

Every Little Birdie says-

I'm rejoicing in times past
and celebrating new futures!!

  1. The clothespinned photos on the frame wire are really cute. I will be on the lookout for some great frames as I have a lot of vintage family photos.

    1. Glad you liked my latest project. It is a cute way to display your favorite photos. If you make one for yourself please post about it and please let me know when you do!!
