Oh, those sturdy vowels. They sure do tend their business, don't they? But Y! Y is a sometimes-vowel, waffly and non-committal. Don't ask Y. Asking Y will never get you anywhere.

Seven-and-a-half by nine-and-a-half opening features 'AEIOU' seemingly floating in mid-air, but really it's housed between two pieces of glass. 'Y' is down there piddling around, tumbling out of frame, or maybe trying to sneak off for noontime drinks. Piece measures ten-and-a-half by thirteen-and-a-half and has a sturdy metal sawtooth hanger affixed firmly to the back.

I love a good ole vintage frame and I have had a lifelong love affair with words, so the Floating Words series I've started tickles me to death since it marries the two. Lots more to come.

I use repurposed/recycled packing materials wherever possible, and I gladly combine shipping on multiple purchases from my shop.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS, I would love to ship awesome vintage goods on over to you! Prior to purchase, however, you need to contact me for shipping rates to your region. I can then customize the shipping portion of this listing especially for you.

Shipping prices quoted are just my best guesstimates based on an item's size, shape and weight. I'd be happy to provide you with an exact quote based on your region; just convo me with a city or zip code and I'll get back to you as quickly as possible then adjust the shipping rate for you if applicable. Thanks!

A E I O U and sometimes Y -- mixed media assemblage -- upscale upcycling for your space
