Framed and Displayed…

A few weeks ago I shared with you this post about my 1930’s Bluebird Calendars…well, I had them framed by McDowell’s U Frame it here in Seattle, and I cannot be more grateful as to how all four framed prints turned out.  The framers took special care with these vintage pieces and preserved them flawlessly under preservation glass.

After I brought them home, I first tried hanging two vertically on each side of the main window.  But after stepping back and taking a few days seeing them that way, I decided that all four needed to be displayed together. So much more charm this way!

So here they are, proudly hung on the wall together! The photo below, almost looks like a scene from an old movie…don’t you think?

Those are gorgeous. I love them grouped together and think they have much more of an impact that way. I just love the old-fashioned look they have- xo Diana

Hi Tracie, It would look much better if you kept equal space between all the four frames.

They are lovely. The last photo looks like the set from one of the old B&W movies that I love - set in New England in a fabulous old Cape Cod with a Dutch door. (I could go on, but I think you get the idea!)

Hello Tracie, they look darling! I love finding good artwork in calendars! I've even used room freshener bags - they're about 5 by 7 :)
Beautiful framing! I appreciate you sharing with A Return to Loveliness,
