Using vintage photos

You already know I collect vintage photos and how I use them, but I also decorate my house with them too. It is so easy to slip them in here and there and they don't need to always be framed. I display these on an old floral frog that sits atop a vintage jar of glass seed beads.

A photo or place card holder gives the photos a little height in this display, and yes I mix rabbits and horses in my shabby chic western style.

Here I use them framed but mixed in a vintage needlepoint. Stick them in an unusual vintage jar with other little keepsakes on a bed of white rice to hold them up, hang them from the collar of your little steif dog or teddy bear with a ribbon. Stretch a wire across your wall with office clips to hold the images for a unique accent. Use your family photos as they are or sepia tone them first, and find your own style and fun ways to enjoy them.
