Newest Creation

As I was surfing my blog list I seen the cutest project where a gal had taken a new coin purse top and used it for a photo frame.
Bells went off in my head and a couple light bulbs and I thought that is what I can use my old celluloid purse frame for. I got this purse frame years ago in a box of stuff (excuse me ) treasures and have always wanted to use it for something.

I found just the correct size picture and that was of Mildred Addison, her name is written on her picture . She is in a 5' x 7' picture
The Before picture of Mildred

                                                                 

               
Then the After picture of Mildred, I wish I knew who Mildred was and where she came from.It is amazing how many old pictures you find at flea markets auctions and antique malls

                                                                                                     
Sweet Mildred I love her dress


I added some beautiful fine vintage lace ( out of my fine lace stash ) at the bottom and added a small pearl at the end of her pearl necklace and that is all . I just love the old purse handle . If I can find the blog I got this idea from I would definitely give her blog name. I might run across it again and will let you know.She is selling her pictures mine is going on the studio wall someplace. I don't think I have a spot for another hanging item  ( Petite Michelle Louise ) thanks to  Patti at Ivy & Elephants for letting me know where I found this adorable idea 
                                                     

                                                           
                                                               



This is where someone had written her name and I have had it so long I have no idea which auction I got it at. I use to go to an auction every month if there was one around. I always liked the old farm auctions because of the crock bowls and old button tins
