This one is definitely one of my favorites. I have this same one in the large size and the medium size. I am using the medium one here to display my grandson's baby picture. It adds such elegance to the vignette and so much old world/frenchy charm with the scrolls and the added detail on the two floral tips. I found it at Home Goods and I still see them there. They are only $6.99, so that's a ton of drama and ambience for the price.
This is the large one. It holds a larger frame nicely and is taller so it is wonderful to use in the background.
I love finding ornate frames and creating a picture gallery.
You can also use these in a much less formal display. One of my bookcases has room for a couple of pics and I have a cow picture displayed on the medium one in this vignette.
It doesn't have to look formal, it just adds character and a touch of old world charm.
I have another one that is wrought iron. It is large enough for a full size plate. Very informal, but depending on how you use it in a vignette it can work in any setting. I found this one at Ross for around $7. I have also seen them at TJMaxx for reasonable prices and many different styles to choose from.
I think this one works perfect with the silver tray and glass hurricane vignette.
I really like that they are unusual and so versatile. I love to find things that can be used in a number of ways. I have used them to hold books, and even an open cookbook in the kitchen.
Do you use them and do you have any unique way to display your treasures?
