Pretty Frame for Pennies




When it comes to the brass look, it's love at first sight for me.

I don't care that modern designers think brass is passe.  For me, it's not.


It's quite Victorian, I guess, but who cares?  It's classy and shiny and beautiful.

Well, during a recreational stop at Goodwill recently, an oval frame just about let off firecrackers when I saw it.

It's soooooo pretty.  Immediately, I could "see" my grandbaby's photo in it!  

It has two holders on the back so it can even be used this way:



Can you believe the price on the back was only $3.50?

Well, it's not real brass. It sure looks like it is, though-----a perfect "fake."

It's a big frame, too, a couple of feet long!  

It will look wonderful on a bedroom wall.  

DOES BRASS APPEAL TO YOU?

Funny talking about brass - we have brass door knows and locks - just went to Home Depot and bought some brass cleaner to clean them - looked really nice and shiny.

Very very pretty! I love all metal and I like to mix it in my home. I think my favorite is copper. :) Kit

We just returned from the Goodwill Thrift shop ourselves. I picked up a picture of two Victorian Ladies sitting at a table having tea. It was $3.50. I also picked up a heart shape box that is very Victorian in design and colors. A beautiful green tablecloth came home with me as well. It was a great shopping day. I love your picture and frame you picked up. I am fine with brass myself. It does look Victorian. It is beautiful. I am sure it will be pretty however you choose to use it.

I think it is lovely and will work so well in your beautiful Victorian home! Looks like an old Home Interior's piece. Very pretty!

Who cares what modern designers think. I love old stuff. Your frame looks beautiful and if you like it then that's all that matters. :)

I really like this frame, Susan. I love antique gold, not sure if that's the same thing as brass. I think it looks so nice just the way it is, with the soft pink roses. What a treasure you found for a few dollars.

Have a blessed Sunday.

love, ~Sheri

If you like brass frames by all means have them. It's your house and your decor. Very pretty frame!

I like brass and use to have a few old kitchen things back in Sweden.. I love pots and pans made of brass.
