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.
