Jewelry & Lacey{s} - Repurposed

Two of my favorite things!  Luckily I don’t wear either ‘cuz they tend to get ruined when painting.   I usually just dive in when painting, gardening, or whatever and things tend to get ruined that way.  Let’s put it this way…. I have more painting clothes than going out clothes.  ‘Nuf said.

So.   I had this old oval frame (I have 2 actually – one more to go) that was the most screamingly garish gold.  So the spray paint came out.

1114 Bubble Glass Frame BEF
Ahhh…much better.   I didn’t want to ignore the fact that the glass was raised and rather than put a print in it, I took advantage of adding 3-D elements.

1114 Bubble Glass Frame 2
A Victorian lace collar, sweet ruffled gloves with doilies and pearls and earrings….. very feminine.  (Pardon the glare on the glass – the overhead lighting in the shop was hard to work with and couldn’t be avoided.)
1114 Bubble Glass Frame 3
I distressed the beading around the glass to bring out the detail.

1114 Bubble Glass Frame
Et voila!  Now for sale in the Uxbridge shop.  One more to go!

Love how this turned out, because that frame was screaming for something Victorian to be put in it!

I'll always think of you when I look at that elf you sent me! Hope all is well with you, and that you're busy creating!
Have a great week!

Oh, this is just beautiful! Anytime, I come across oval frames at yard sales & GW, I grab them. There's just something about the shape that draws me in! Thanks for the visit! Hope you'll stop back by again soon!
