This is an unknown love story. Arthur and Martha were found forlorn and abandoned at the local thrift store. How can this beautiful couple on what was probably the most special day in their lives.....end up here. The cheap pine frame did not do justice to this glorious wartime couple. I handed over my $2 and rescued them from a junk pile of picture frames. I did not know their names so I gave them names from that era. I have adopted Arthur and Martha and they are now my much loved but unknown adopted grandparents. I wanted them to have pride of place so I turfed the ugly pine frame and got to work on a more suitable surrounding. I used some 1970's retro gold embossed wallpaper(one day I am going to run out of Amelia's amazing retro wallpaper and then there will be tears) which I tore up and then glued to the cardboard surround. To this I added some vintage lace and then I finished this project off with a box picture frame from the 1930's.
At the top is Arthur and Martha on the wedding day and a couple of pics showing them in their later years.
Arthur and Martha I promise you that I will rescue you from the ugly pine frame.
My new much loved adopted grandparents now displayed on a beautiful 1950/60's chest of drawers.
A frame more deserving of this unknown love story.
