Vintage Curios: Make Your Own Art

One of the great perks of being a vintage sleuth is finding wonderful curios for my own home. I found this darling little framed flower bouquet lithograph for 50¢. Up close--very close--you can see the daisies are hand painted white for an extra pop. Beautiful.

The frame is backed with green velvet & I didn't want to peel it open. So I added my vintage buttons--still holding onto a swatch of fabric, and a poem line, "look at the stars", I once typed and tore away for this piece--right on the glass.

Some day, someone else may want to remove my additions & clean it up, hang it on their own wall. UP-cycle. :-)
