Not too long ago I was at an antique cooperative and found these little thread card frames. They consist of two squares of cardboard with an opening cut in the top piece and a little photo behind that to create a frame of sorts. Then whoever made them wrapped thread in a pattern around the whole thing to create a little memento. I am particularly fond of the one one the right - love the fellow in his jaunty hat with a big grin on his face! The frames remind me in particular of the old thread cards from France. French thread cards are still available from Sajou. The cards below are available from 1. Bell'Occhio and 2. Swan and Shears.
