Oh, y'all, I am in deep trouble. You see, I asked my new blogging friend, Henrietta Hassinen, where she got her awesome vintage photo frames that she posts on her blog. I had hoped she might share with me either the actual frame file or a simple link where I might download it.

Henrietta was generous enough to share the link, but it came with this caveat: I have bought the picture frame from here Don't freak out when you go there:) My first reaction was like I WANT TO BUY EVERYTHING.

I thought to myself, 'heh, I'll be fine! Don't worry about me!'

Before I could finish saying "Holy cow!" I had purchased five templates from the store. FIVE!

I'm really afraid to go back there. Now I am forced to warn you, too. When you enter that place, be very, very careful. In fact, it's best if you ask a trusted friend to hold on to your credit card while you browse. See, that's all I thought I would do is browse. Pfffttt! Forget about it! Hopefully, you don't have your credit card number memorized.

The only other thing I need to warn you about is that some of the files are png only and some are a combination of transparent pngs and the layered PS/PSE files. I'm not as crazy about the png only files, so if that is important to you, make sure you look for that in the description.

You have been warned.

Note: All photos were taken at the LSU Rural Life Museum.

Oh, you are right. Those are gorgeous. Love those vintage frames, totally love the clipboard. *sigh* thanks for sharing. I think. :)
And your photos are gorgeous. I love the way you put them together in the frames.
thanks! xo

I see some one have been shopping:) They are so lovely.
Beautiful spring shots, is that great antique chair in first picture yours, I love!?

Autumn said...

Cool find!

Oh, now you have peaked my curiousity so I will have to go there and check it out. Love how you framed everything!

I LOVE them! I think it was worth the money, don't you? ;)

Rosie said...

:-) your post really made me smile! :-))) Your creations are so wonderful. But I'm not sure yet whether to thank you for the link or not ;-) maybe I decide after I went there... ;-)

Barbara said...

Those are gorgeous and perfect for your photos! I'm wary of going there.... but thanks for the tip!

lisa said...

Went there last night Gail.
Surely you do not exaggerate.
A very dangerous place for a credit card!!
But thank you for sharing!!!! :-)

hootnonny said...

Absolutely love all your new frames! My credit card is hidden! Hope I can't find it.

They're great, Gail. AND your Louisiana azaleas are fabulous. I've never seen anything that beautiful.

Are we talking virtual here?
Sorry to seem dense, but do you actually buy the surrounds for you own images?
Not that it doesn't look brill, but I get confused over what people purchase.
BTW, I was glad you told me you had read the comment post.
Now how about these tumblr people taking one's pictures full size without so much as a by-you-leave. Granted, they link to you, but even so, we are not talking thumbnail here.

I was so shook up that I closed several blogs. I hate it. And they seem to think it is quite alright. Have you had it happen? And are you in acceptance of it?

Joanna Jenkins said...

Vintage frames are a favorite of mine but I have no idea what a png file is so I think I'll just spend time here and drool over your purchases :-)
Cheers, jj

Rosemary Aubut said...

Thanks Gail! Your photos are so wonderful! Love the vintage feel! Got to go find that credit card!

hootnonny said...

You are rocking those digi frames, my friend! Looks like they were made for your images.

Oh my goodness! I had always said I would make it easy for people to comment as long as there was no spam. Last week I had to enforce comment moderation because of spam; however, I failed to put in an email address to be notified! I kept wondering why no one was commenting on my post, then it hit me! Doggone spammers! They ruin everything. :)

Louisiana Belle said...

Joco, I wanted to reply to your comment, but you are no longer linked and I do not have your email address, so I will respond here.

So sorry to hear about people using your photos without permission! I have not had it happen to me, but Jerry Jones of Shadowhouse Creations (on my sidebar) had it happen to him and asked his readers what to do about it.

He ended up using the Report Abuse button that is located at the top of every blog. Very quickly, the offending post was removed.

I would suggest contacting the blogger who took your photo, asking them to remove it, and if they do not comply, then use that Report Abuse button! Good luck to you.

I thank you for the link. Great stuff! I'm not sure my wallet's gonna be happy, tho, LOL!

Of course I feasted on the Louisiana photos and really thank you for glimpses of home. I simply can't get enough of azaleas in bloom. It's such a gorgous spray of color.

I think it became uncool to sew clothes around the early 70's. I keep saying I'm going to get a sewing maching, but never do. I say this when I look at the ghastly prices for shorts. But Costco now carries shorts at a price my sewing can't beat, yay!

I really like these frames, especially the clipboard, but your images are what makes them. I am loving everything you took at LSU! I can't wait to see what all you will do with horses now.
