red velvet love....

In all the excitement over the estate sale last weekend, I forgot to show you my favorite treasure of all, this very old velvet standing photo album. It never ceases to amaze me that people would actually use something this fancy for displaying their treasured photos. Oh what stories it contained. I thought it was so lush and pretty and perfect for this time of year. Now what to do with it?!

I live in the wrong area... you always find such fabulous estate sales... not here...

I think that frame is beautiful.. it would be wonderful for xmas or valentines... even for the 4th of july if you add the right things with it.

Oh boy, this is right up my alley. I would have swooned upon snagging this. So often they are found with chipped mirrors or missing most of their velvet fuzz. Beautiful!

That is scumptiously sumptious.

You've got the eye for treasure hunting. Can't wait to see what you make with it!
