A stirrup and a beautiful belt buckle from my ever expanding collection. I knew i wanted to combine them and a photo frame seemed ideal.  I spent hours trying to solder the two things together but for some reason they refused to join!  I bowed to Sues greater junk knowledge and used her idea for hanging with fishing wire.  Thanks Sue!
The finished frame
The photo is one of me,my mother and siblings at a wedding years ago.  Im wearing a crochet dress and a hat my milliner aunt made.  I loved that outfit!!
