Antique Seed Catalog Reinvented – 1899 Henderson’s Front Cover Picture

I have another set of picture frames for you, this time with a 1899 Henderson’s Seed Catalog:

I used the pretty front cover with roses, to create a frame for a Belle Epoque outing:

The genuine vintage picnic image is from the amazing Petrine Wiik Collection

I used some old plastic frames I had lying around, I’m sure you can find similar frames at thrift stores. I painted them white with my home made chalk paint, and rubbed some of the paint off with a moist cloth:

I printed my altered Henderson’s Pictures, cut them out and ran them trough my laminator, so they can take the moist air outside better.

Here are the lovely Belle Epoque Picnic Ladies in their new rosy frame

And the frame for you to use with your own pictures, vintage or new:
