My Gramma saved everything! One of my favorite things she saved is the valentines from her school days. They are from the late '10s and early '20s. Framing and matting is so expensive, but can really define the item you want framed. I decided that since the valentines had survived 8 decades without air conditioning and since I was on a really tight budget, I would just have to fake it. I used acid free paper and clear photo corners to "frame" them in frames that I patiently bought over two "sales" at my local craft store. Someday I will probably have them professionally framed, but for right now, I love them!
That's beautiful! I knew you were doing that but I hadn't seen it. Great job - they look professional to me!
Just the other day, I was wondering to myself if you had a blog, and *poof* here you are... Yay! What a great treasure the Valentines are and you did an awesome job framing them yourself!
