Vintage Photo in Make-over clock frame

 A few years back I purchased a clock for my sunroom.  It is a really neat design with birds (my favorite) for that room.  The clock worked when I bought it and worked for a few weeks. I purchased it at a flea market and paid about 10.00 for it.

I decided to convert it into a picture frame so I could still use it in there.  I chose a vintage picture of my three sisters.  It was taken in Oct. 1966 the year I got married and moved to New Mexico.

Before

After



My sisters are now 59,60 and 50.  This picture was taken at a friends home on a lake here in Kansas.

Great repurposing! That's so terrific that you thought of another use for it and it really turned out so charming.

That looks terrific and so sweet with the photo of you and your sisters.

Do you still live in NM? I lived there for over 20 years and my family (and my husband's) is still there.

We're back in the midwest where I grew up now.

Blessings,
