Vintage Hang Ups

Here's my contribution to The French Cupboard's Paperie Party...
I created a whole suitcase-full of these Vintage Hang Ups originally for a Street Festival this summer. Sadly we were rained out that day, but these make delightful last minute gifts. My friend who is a framer gave me a bunch of matt board scraps which I used as the base. Then, I found various vintage images (some are old family photos) to incorporate into the design. A little ribbons, lace, buttons and bows completed the assemblage. So much fun to create!

...what do you suppose is the swoon factor to these vintage images of those from so long ago? Maybe that 100 years from now, WE will be those people, and don't we have a story to tell?!
Admiring how you have used the vintage lace and ribbons to complement each one.

Your "King for a Day" piece is just too cute. What a fun project to incorporate old family photos.
