I love old frames and found this oval one at the thrift store for $1.98.
I used my Rustoleum spray paint in the primer one coat series - in a white and then a bright red. When you are spray painting and want a bright color, always undercoat with a good coat of white or off white. It took the paint beautifully.
I had a spool of white buttons strung on white heavy cord that I draped across in a zig zag pattern and hot glued on the back. Then I took tiny white clothespins and glued on some vintage family pictures (and NO, that is not me!), an old hankerchief, a doily and a Christmas card.
I made a little Christmas vignette using my little library step stool. On it I put a Mother's plaque, a little red caped Christmas girl, a red Christmas glittery house, a red transferware plate and a tiny red Lucite clock. Next to the Mother's plaque is my book page Christmas tree and above it a red and white polka dotted little pitcher.
I then added a snowman candle and thought it made a really cute vignette.
It made for a fun afternoon of playing around and getting the Christmas spirit going.
Till next time, Judy
