Framed Vintage Bathing Suits ... Cool Idea!

Found on the Katy Elliott designer blog. Is this not the coolest idea????? How about vintage bathing suit framed for your walls? Here are a few found on 1st Dibs. These are a bit pricey for some pocketbooks, which leads me to think that you could search vintage shops (or ebay) and find a great suit to frame yourself. AND, if you live near a Michael's or Joanne Fabric store, they often run the professional framing at 50% off. Get a shadowbox and you've got a great addition to your walls.

You are giving after leaving this earthly plane. There are currently over 100 souls there now. This reef not only provides an extraordinary eternal resting place for the departed, but it was constructed to regenerate life in the ocean. If you are a beach lover you can appreciate the fact that we take a lot from our environment while we live. Here's an opportunity to give something back.
The reef is located 3.25 miles east of Key Biscayne in Miami, FL - GPS coordinates N25ยบ 42.036',…
