Can you believe it already Tuesday again~ Our new TT Challenge is Use Pins
Our sponsor My Graffico gave us these lovely frames.

They are lacy and I thought they would be perfect to use in a vintage LO. I cut around each of the frames then mounted the pics. This is a pic of my daughter at age 5 dressed in a vintage outfit. The other pic is her great great grandmother at age 15. I love the hats! I have some vintage hat pins that I was going to use to go along with the hats but of course I have put them away in
some very safe safe I wasn't able to find them
LOL Hope Im not the only one that does such crazy things!! So I started this LO going a different direction but a few Big hic ups redirected and this is what I came up with. Stitched some of the dps and stamped some fourishes on them.I also cut out a piece of border. I just love tatting but have never been able to conquer it. I have some treasured pieces in my stash and these 3 little flowers seemed perfect to go along with the theme. My sweet mama just gave me a big jar full of every size of vintage pearl beads you can image. It was perfect timing to add a few to this LO. My buttons are also old vintage ones from one of my many buttons tins. Since both pics also have flowers I added lots of those too. I thought the little pop of red added some fun to the LO.
I was really pleased with how this LO turned out but one struggle with this is that it looks curved but it is totally flat. I guess it is the angle that I hold my camera. If you have any tips feel free. Entering Challenges:
