Framing Cards

I've found a neat frame for artists' cards, handpainted ones like PJ's, and I wanted to show a picture of it. They're in dark gray steel or shinier steel, and they're made in New York by Bedford Downing Glass. I got this one at Surroundings in Houston. I think they're great for the purpose, since you can see both sides.

You have to use a card of some kind to slip the card in and position it, but then, there you are.

I lost my comment.

Anyway, great idea! I framed a few postcards and hung them on the wall. Some are just so pretty that it's a shame to trash them or stick them in a drawer.

I like the way the frame gives the chicken little black legs!

Those are great! Elegant and simple.
I have a few cards I'd love to frame.

I noticed the legs, too, Jinksy. Call it serendipity!

That frame is a lovely idea. So often I receive a card which I really like and which I would like to keep on show for a little while. That frame is ideal. Alas the UK is a long way from Houston. I was there in May last year to look round the space centre but am not likely to come that way again. Is the climate always so very humid?

Richard said you made it look wonderful, and he was right. I am so proud! That rooster never looked so good. :)
