Chippy shabby window photo display

Hello, friends! Here is another photo display from my mother in law's 80th birthday.  I used my shabby old window to display wedding pictures of Jean and Frank. They have been married 55 years this year.  I hung each photo with a torn piece of vintage book page as a matte.

And where did that rusty letter "M" end up?  It stands proudly on top of this display. I like the contrast.
Feel free to double click and enlarge the picture. Happy White Wednesday to all!  I'll share my redo of my PB wall cubby with you next.  I had some fun using that to display pics for the party too!  Hope you are having a great week.  xoxo  I'm linking to the following parties! Come join the fun!


  1. LOve this! I bet they did too! What a great idea, your always full of great ideas though! Have a great wednesday Vicki... t. xoxoxo

They are ever changing as preteens so it will be nice to change them out. I am curious as to where you found your clips. I live in a small town in the Panhandle of Nebraska and resources are very limited unless you are looking for tumbleweeds! Any help would be appreciated. Thanks for sharing.

  35. Hey, Lawgirl. I was not able to email you back since you don't have your email setup in Blogger account. I found the clips on Etsy. Couldn't find what I needed at hardware store or office supply. Thanks for visiting!

    1. Hey Vicki - I had the same question about where to get the clips. What did you put into Etsy to find them? Thanks! I also do not have my email or anything set up so please feel free to reply on here!

  36. Hey Vicki - I had the same question about where to get the clips. What did you put into Etsy to find them? Thanks! I also do not have my email or anything set up so please feel free to reply on here!

  37. I found these at Anything Goes on Etsy some time ago. I don't think she has any now. Search for alligator clips on Etsy. These are unique since they are on hooks and the head spins 360 degrees. Good luck!

  38. I've had a couple of old windows by my shed for years thinking one day i'll find a use for them. I think this is juts what i've been keeping them for. Thanks for sharing!

  39. This is such a great idea! Problem is I don't have a window and have no idea where to find one. Do you have any ideas? Thanks!
