I Love eBay!

I am a collector. I admit it. I have probably always been a collector. My mother thinks that I was probably a crow in a former life – flying around, gathering things that appeal to me.

While surfing eBay yesterday looking for something completely different, I scored a prize: an original set of 48 antique rose cards from 1913. I can’t wait till they get here!

The cards have a picture of the rose on the front, and its description on the back. Like this:

(I have NO idea how I will display these …. any ideas?)

  1. Framed in sets of eight or four, sandwiched between two panes of glass, to see both sides. Mat or no mat, ask the framer. If no mat they have a way to do this but I like the old fashioned photo corners. It would look period appropriate. Display in a group. I may even paint a feature wall a companion color just for them, they are so pretty.


Thanks for stopping by and reading what I share. Comments are welcome and very much appreciated. Spam and trolls are not!
