When Funk Junk Interiors SNS
weekly theme party was for something old,
I knew just what I wanted to share with you...
(click photos to enlarge)
This gorgeous Victorian frame
has been sitting on my desk for weeks!
(yes a garage sale purchase :-)
I have been walking by admiring its beauty...
waiting to have the time to open it up
and revamp it...
Because someone did this to it!
Today I finally opened it up hoping to find
the original contents..
The only thing of interest was
the backing was made from a grocery bag
advertising green stamps!
I loved to collect those as a kid
and dream over the goodies in the catalog :-)
Isn't she a beauty?
It was hard to capture the domed glass...
The lower corners carved wood detailing..
An upper corner...
cracked and crazed to delightful perfection :-)
The gorgeous top...
A close up of the amazing neoclassical leaves...
Now come the hard parts..
I bought it with every intention of painting it
to a shabby perfection...
But I do love the original classic gold too...?
Then I have to find the perfect item to display...?
What a wonderful problem to have :-)
