When I have paint on a brush, I always wonder around my craft room or barn looking for something that could use a quick paint job before I wash it out. That was the case the other day when I had some white on a brush. I've had this frame stashed away for EVER. One of those fifty center garage sale frames. Yup, it's sat idle and ugly long enough.

I was going to hang photos, which would be the norm, but as I was looking for a birthday card that afternoon, I came across these vintage-inspired post card ads. I've seriously had these postcards since I was a young teen. I cannot remember where I got them, but I have lots of them and they are so cute! I think they are from when I was going through my "victorian" phase.
