The Perfect Pair ~ A Frame in a Frame

A Frame in a Frame

Don't you just love it when something just comes "together"?  
Completely by accident....  and better than if you had planned it. 
I LOVE vintage frames!  I have lots and lots of them.  Whenever I find a fabulous one.....  I pick it up even if I have no idea what I'm going to do with it.  That will come in time.
I bought this vintage print a long time ago and it needed a frame.  I wanted something special and knew someday I would find just the "right" one.  Well.... it had been several years and lots of frames later....  and I still hadn't found "the one".  
I was in the basement looking through my collection of old frames and bingo!  I had one with the "right" green and one with a lovely gold........  I put them together and they fit perfectly!  They were even the right size!!  Finally.....  my vintage print found it's perfect frame.
The outside frame is a wonderful chippy green (you can't tell because of the glare) and the center frame is a fabulous ornate gold with great patina.  Oh....  what a lovely pair!

 Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!

I love vintage frames too! Love that pretty print in yours. So nice that you came by! I have been enjoying your beautiful tag from Jeanette's gift. It is a small blogging world after all isn't it?

Shopping at home seems to be a thread for a lot of us this week! It always makes me smile when I read something and think, "Wow, me too!" Your pictures are lovely as always. Happy Pink Saturday! Have a Blessed week!

Oh- Elizabeth. You put together the most beautiful and romantic things. I always feel like I have been brushed by a sweet ruffled touch of feminine sweetness when I visit her. Hope you have a wonderful Sunday- xoDiana

I love the way the petticoat and tussy mussy are hanging on the frame, so pretty!

Hello Elizabeth, I also love a rich gold frame with a bit of wear upon it. I have changed a few of them out over the last 20 years, now I wish I had kept them WHAAA!
I think you ought to do some pictures of your vintage bike.
Maybe we could start a new trend :)
Have a wonderful week!
Blessings, Roxy

Elizabeth, I'm such a dingbat! I had comments sitting in my "waiting for moderation" section and completely forgot I even have the feature enabled! So, needless to say, I'm a bit behind.

Your frames look gorgeous! I do love it when things turn out better than I'd expected too:) Off to check out your previous post now!

We bought some frames this weekend - just because they looked great and were a terrific price - I do love it when things come together - you collect never knowing just when something will click! Love it - your artwork looks wonderful! I do appreciate you sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,
