ONE MAN'S JUNK..ANOTHER MAN'S TREASURE


Right before I retired ... at work this time- worn frame made it into the dumpster... with the statement... what a piece of junk.... I rushed out...dumpster diving retrieved what I believe to be a wonderful time ravished very old Victorian frame... I just love this old beauty... but many would say...yuck..... beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder.... I had this old vintage jewelry in my home for awhile in my hummm... what am I gona do with this box..... A old cabinet card and lace collar and SOOOO SIMPLE.... Great with my old victorian stuff.....
