Hanging Mobile Photo Gallery

While visiting an antique mall in Plainview Texas last week,    I came across this wire hangy thingy in one of the booths,     At first I thought it was made using pieces of  vintage plate hangers,    but now I'm not so sure.      What do you think it's made from?? 
   Update........I found out it's a hanging mobile photo gallery and you can purchase one on Amazon.....

I could see me using it to hang prints from the little clips on the ends,    so I bought it......$12.     The store had their display of them hanging from chandeliers arms.          I decided to use a vintage bird cage stand to hang mine from.


Since my mobile?   is hanging on a bird cage stand,    I thought it would be neat to hang bird themed prints from the little clips.   
  I think it could be used at a graduation party to hang photo's of the graduate from first grade to 12th.     Maybe at a wedding.........or just prints of art that you like.

The first print I hung is a miniature that I printed of a yard long painting done by Christie Repasy.......her paintings are just gorgeous!

Then,   I searched on Pinterest for other bird prints with roses .........

All my prints are 4 x 6 and I glued two prints  together to make it pretty on both sides.   

I found bird prints with tea cups........birds on floral designs .........

Birds wearing crowns.......

Birds on a heart wreath.......

I tried to get a variety of prints as well as artists.

I would love to hear if you've ever seen one of these hangy things before........or if you know what they're made from.

Now where can I put my bird mobile..........maybe on the new deck that H is working on today.

    O my goodness!! I love it!! What a find and so cute!!

  3. As I am a pink roses and bird fan, I loved your mobile. Wish my house had an unfilled corner or higher ceilings to accomodate one. I am making a simpler Halloween mobile for my H. loving daughter from a lamp shade rim and a coat hanger. Maybe, I'll get it done this year! I think the wires on yours would be easier to deal with than fishing line!

  4. What a beautiful pretty mobile! I love the images you chose!! =)

  5. How lovely! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm!

  6. Penny, several years ago I ran across a light fixture that had clips like this. I wanted it so much but in the end I didn't have the nerve. I've always kind of regretted that. I love your mobile and the way you decorated it.

  7. That's such a neat idea Penny and it looks so lovely with the pastel prints you've added


It makes my day to hear from my friends!
