A Fun Frame

What do you do with old vintage film cartridges? Use them as frames! Just hot glue your favorite old photo on them and you will have a one-of-a-kind piece.

Hi Becky!

Oh how fabulous!! easy and so vintage sweet too! Thanks for sharing! Great idea !!

Thank you too so much for your wonderful comments, you are so kind!!

I got the Red Gingham Chair and Sofa at a company called Beachley. If you goggle Beachley Furniture, ( I didn't want to spam you by putting the address here, lol )you will see a huge selection of Sofas and Chairs. I believe they show them in plain white, but that's because you can have them done in any fabric. If you need prices for them just let me know which model # you like and I can get them for you, they are only sold to designers, but offer great prices ....I had the Fabric in the collection I sell, its Farm Sweet , Red. If you would like to see more of it, I am adding the collection to my website this week. So you can peek there if you like, I have memo samples too that I can mail out to you ...

Thanks so much for stopping by, I love visiting your blog so much, its so pretty and so cottagey cozy too! Hope you have a great day! Hugs, Cynthia

You have an 'eye,' for seeing how to do marvelous and unique things.

Hey...I loved hearing from you. You come back to visit, because YOU are my kind of people! You read all the same authors that I do, and, you like all the same movies too.
Your sense of humor is "quirky" and I believe, that I, dear girl, am your lost (evil?) twin!!

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

Hello~ this is my first visit to your lovely blog. What a wonderful way of repurposing vintage film cartridges. The photos are the perfect touch.

I look forward to visiting again.

I went to both your shop sites, but everything was sold. Will you be adding new inventory, if so could you let me know when.

Sweet Wishes,
Sara
