found these on Wed. at the flea market/auction in the trash pile. They were too cute to throw out, but not sure what to use them for.

I am using this same set in a collage for my sisters -- picked out one for each and then I am adding other sentimental finds (mom's earings, the monopoly game piece we always had dibs on, a hankie from grandma, little snipped out words of love, lockets, etc).

Great save.

How about framing them up individually as a series?

I'd make greeting cards out of them for my nieces but I am sure you will get lots of great ideas from this group. Posted: 2:51 pm on December 13th
