Vintage Oval Frame

Joe says our walls are a rotating gallery of my found art. 
He could be right.
I took down the praying man picture and put up the gilded oval frame.

You can see how chippy the frame is. I paid one dollar for it. 
Should I put something on it to hold it together?

I put this oil painting in it. This oil is dated 1951. It is older than me...woot.

What do you think? Should I Keep it? Sell it?

My friend Fancy and I are leaving for North Georgia for our quick trip on Thursday.
 I may be scarce for a couple of days. We are going to explore North Georgia and the Pottery Barn Outlet.

joy and peace


  1. I would keep it! The oil painting is nice, too...although I will have to admit to being older than it! lol Have fun on your outing...I think I'll google it to see where it is! I would love to go sometime!

  2. That Joe sounds like a sweety!

  3. I love your friend's name, Fancy. Hey, I am older than your oil painting. Enjoy your rotating art collection.

  4. I love your rotating collections...

  5. i want to know where to find a "praying man" ... forgive me if i have told you this story. my friend had one when i was a child & i would look at him & think about him. what type of man was he & so forth. always wanted one. wonder where i could get one? i love moving things around here in the home. the hubby not so much. it confuses him. ha. ha!! (:

    1. Beth, maybe on etsy or ebay. Or an estate sale. They were not uncommon in the 1950's and 60's.

  6. Very pretty Olive! So jealous about you going to the Pottery Barn Outlet.

  7. Pretty oil, Olive! Hope you and Fancy have a great time at the PB Outlet. I keep saying I'm going over there. I haven't been in a long time. It's probably just as well, I'd be buying everything in sight. Have fun!

  8. Your frame is so pretty, Olive. Definitely keep it for awhile, then change it when you find something else you can't let go right away. I love your whole vignette. Very nice!
    Sounds like a fun road trip.
