I found these for next to nothing in Germany. The Germans just don't understand the Americans' love of tramp art, and I was thrilled to find these lovely little frames. Then I made the mistake of offering them to my daughter. I couldn't decide where to hang them and thought she would put them to good use... and she did. But then she sent photos to my son, and my telephone immediately started to ring. "Why didn't you give them to me?!! I would have taken them right away!" I promised him the next ones I find would be his... but how lucky I would be to find such a desirable heart frame again!
And as sweet and charming as the heart frame is, I almost think I like this wonderful folk art piece even better. I was thrilled they were put to such good use, but now I'm under pressure to fine even more!
