Tin tile in a frame

Ive had this tin tile forever, but never really had an idea for it.  I loved its chippy white paint.  The tile never seemed to work on any project I was working on.  Then I did some measuring and realized the frame from this old window was the perfect size for it.  I just love it when that happens!
When attaching to the wood frame, I simply used small nails with heads big enough to grab the tin.  Then, a quick spray of poly helped to stop any more paint from peeling.
I had a few random numbers, so I glued them to magnets to hold various black and white photos.
I also glued old earrings to magnets to add a special touch to my little nieces picture.  (Although it isnt really necessary to make them look more adorable than they already are!)
Time to add more photos!
