Roses painted on Vintage metal holder



I picked up this black metal "page" holder. I wonder if it was used back in the day of the typewriter to hold your paper that you were going to type from. Being metal. It would be a great place to attach a memo with a cute magnet, or to hold that scrapbooking page that you might be working on. I put this on my Ebay starting at a very low price. I painted roses all over it. If you can think of some more uses for this I would love to hear your comments.

When I was a little girl my mother used those in her typing class:)
Loved getting to sit in with the big kids sometimes!

Just found you, not sure how, a link from someone elses blog I think. Anyway, your little pin cushions are adorable. By the way, we are practically neighbors. I live in Sherwood. I was just in Oregon City for the Antique Show last weekend. Will definitely bookmark your blog and check back often. You are one creative gal.
