A couple months ago I came across this empty frame at the thrift store.
There are quite a few vendors at the antique mall where I have my booth that sell chalkboards so ultimately I decided to go with the bulletin board idea.
I painted the frame in my favorite Antique White and adhered burlap to a piece of cork and slipped it into the frame. So easy!!
I love this photo. It looks like the two girls are dancing.
Ledgers from the 1920's and 30's
I love these calling cards from the 1800's.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I love sharing my latest projects with you!!
