Don’t you love it when a couple of your yard sale finds suddenly come together in your brain and you can make something of them? I’ve just spent the last 20 minutes (yeah, it was a huge project) putting these together.
The “pictures” are two little silver plated Hallmark ornaments that I picked up last December. Fifty cents for the pair, and the tarnish they wore was free. I’m a sucker for silhouette illustrations, but these were so small that they certainly didn’t work as Christmas ornaments. So they’ve been hanging around my office, unappreciated.
Then the other day I was looking for something else and ran across the little black frames. They are either the ones I bought for fifty cents in 2007, or the splurge I made in 2006—three small frames for a buck. In any case, a few minutes time, a little bit of blue paper for the background, and voila.
