Let's Talk Vintage #20: Finding Treasures in My Vintage Stash

 
Welcome to Let's Talk Vintage!
This is the twentieth week
for this fun vintage lovin',
 blog get together.
 
I've been having a blast seeing
what everyone brings
to the party each week.
 
This week I'm sharing how I did not
go out to find vintage goodies,
but just looked through my vintage stash.
 
 
 
 
Can you believe this awesome frame
was laying around hoping I would
notice it and all of its greatness?
 
Can't tell you how many times I
overlooked it here in my office.
I added the antique postcard
and VOILA! I had art.
 
And not just art, but a new
TREASURE.
 
 
 
And although a little shabby this vintage
aqua tin picnic basket also sits
in my office, waiting for me to notice it.
 
This week I finally did.
 

 
This is an Argus C3 camera... also noted for its use
in the Harry Potter movie by the Collin Creevey
character.
 
And yep, it was found, right here
in a box, in my office!
 
 
 
And last but not least,
this treasure has been waiting
for the hubs and I to re-frame it.
Gorgeous, no?
 
 When we took it
out of the frame there was an old
Boston Herald newspaper behind
it from the 1870's. So of course,
I am super curious to know
who the artist was. Initials
 are E.C.B. Mysterious!
 
We are almost done re-framing.
While working on it, the hubs
accidently broke the original, old,
antique bubbled glass.

I'm not upset. Too much.
 
No, seriously, I think we can find new
"old" glass at a place nearby.
 
When it is finished it is going
to find a prominent
place in my office.
How could I not with the
beautiful "Bella" roses?

Thanks Jillian, I linked up. I'm sorry I didn't see your party sooner...I've had myself so buried in painting and fixing up this house! I'll try to link up often.

You found some great hidden treasures that you already owned! I have been finding a few in my garage that I had forgotten about. Those are the best surprises! Thank you for hosting this fun party.
