I found these 3 little lovely card or photo holders in a thrift store today for $1. I just couldn't leave them there...but what to do with them?
That was the question.
I thought of searching through old family Christmas photos but that seemed to be a daunting task. My Mom was great at organizing, sorting, boxing, displaying etc. photos and photo books....me....not so much.
Sooooo...I thought maybe I could get some cool vintage photos online to print...YES....there were hundreds to choose from.....
So here is my display....in 10 minutes....this is what I came up with.
I decided on copies of old post cards,
since vintage photos of people I didn't know seemed weird.
I used a cream colored card stock and trimmed them to size
with a paper cutter to get nice straight lines.
and ps: I found these Department 56 bottle brush trees yesterday at Savers for only $2. A Savers just opened up near me and it was the first time I had been there. My Mom used to take me to a Savers in Arizona
but I didn't realize it was a chain thrift store....
Now It will be one of my new haunts!
