Over on Pinterest, I stumbled upon this clever "art" idea featured in the New York Times.  Here, the concept was carried out using stray mittens and gloves found throughout New York City and then cleverly framed up like an art installation. Like any family with small children we always end the winter season with a plethora of mismatched mittens and gloves, so I can't believe that it never dawned on me to frame them like this! Especially since I have a penchant for framing items of clothing. We have a framed silk scarf up in Vermont, which I loved so much that I repeated the idea with a similar scarf in my son's room.  I also framed my son's little baby swim trunks. Probably the most special is the little dress my Grandmother made for my mother back in the old country...the very same one she wore in her passport photo when she immigrated to this country from occupied Germany.  It's such a special tie from one generation to the next. (It's hanging in our basement playroom, and almost impossible to photograph properly!)  Do you have a thing for framing heirlooms and clothing as well?
