What to do with an old frame

I have a tendency to save things. Call me a hoarder if you want, but as an artist, I feel like there will be a use for everything. Today I realized that I had enough postcards to hang them together... so the use for this frame finally became apparent. I took eyelet screws from a regular picture framing kit and hung string between them in three rows. Then paperclipped the postcards to the string, simple right?! I already have plans to buy some regular closepins to hang watercolors in the same manner to even larger frames I've been keeping on my balcony for two years while I thought of a reason to use them. Hoarder maybe, but I'm glad now I kept them!
