Vintage Italian and Miniature Floral Art Friday's Find #281


Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! How has your week been? Are you ready for this week's fabulous finds? You probably know I'm partial to florals, and if you've seen any of the posts featuring my gallery wall, you may have noticed that I have a fondness for vintage Italian frames...

I often come across the ornate brass frames when I'm thrifting. Usually, the art is  damaged or missing, as was the case for those I've gathered and upcycled in my dining room. However, recently, I scored this pretty pair with the lovely art intact.

I love the ornate details.

I also came across a set of tiny miniatures often used in dollhouses. The art is unique because it's printed on silky fabric. The frames are resin--these aren't Italian.

I can't decide if I like the second or third design best...

  5. I loved your finds. I have always loved oval frames of any kind! And those little pictures are perfect for a dollhouse; I would decorate a parlor or bedroom around the colors in them!
