Oval Frame “Easter Eggs”

Oval Frame “Easter Eggs”

I can’t quite explain why I love vintage oval picture frames so much…but I just DO! And when I see them in thrift shops, I snap them up, no questions asked. While brainstorming for new project ideas (by tidying up my Craft Room), I realized something:
