My daughter....she is so creative and thoughtful. When we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary, she decided to create this unique collage of pictures of us and some nice family pictures. At the time, she found this window looking wall hanging, which originally had a mirror in it. When working in the retail store it came from she noticed that the mirror was broken, so she asked if she could get a discount on it. She did, and removed the broken mirror. She cut a board, attached the pictures, then mounted it back where the mirror was. We keep it in a hallway in our bedroom. It gives the pictures a little dimension and covers them just enough to not make them "stand out" just plain on the wall. We love it. So if you happen to see something similar in one of the better discount stores, and it looks like it's a little beat up, you can distress it, paint it or use your imagination. It would make a nice gift for a special occasion!
