Framed

Back in the 70s a photographer from one of the magazines took pictures of Jimmy’s great Uncle Ral.

This was taken in the back yard at his house in Graysville, Tennessee.  This picture is in a prominent place at our house behind the door in the computer/library room. (smile)

Jimmy’s great grandmother, Gertie Maw, lived on the same street and he photographed her on her front porch.  This is the way the porch and Gertie looked whenever we would visit her. 

He also photographed Jimmy’s Grandmother standing out by a well.

On to the frames.  Uncle Ral is in the original frame and Gertie Maw is going to be matted and framed in this one.

It was painted gold years ago but this is what I did to match Uncle Rol’s frame.

The surface had chips here and there so I made mod podge, which is equal portions of elmer’s glue and water, and brushed a thick layer on the frame to secure any places that may chip.

Then Brother Jimmy Honey and I painted the black over the gold.

Then I dry brushed gold over the black on both frames.  Don’t they look happy?!?!

Have a great day!!!! xo deb
