Framed ~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I have a small, but growing collection of antique frames
that I've kept for years in a wooden crate...

all shapes, sizes and manners of finishes...
my intentions were to use them for needlework or painted art.
when I redecorated my sewing studio,
I needed something for the bare walls
and reached for the frames...

I grouped by size, color or wood ~
never really paying much attention to details.


they looked great, but were empty still ~
so I perused another favorite collection of mine...
my antique photos and cabinet cards...
...pinned them to the wall inside the frames
and
viola' !!!
Instant Gallery
that I can change on a whim
with fabrics, magazine pages, photos and yes,
...even needlework...
why store away your collections
when you can put them to good use?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I'm off to work in the shop today,then to the PO & bank...
perhaps a stop in a local antiques shop to hunt for
.....what else?
{...more frames!}
Hoping you are all snug in your cosy little homes ~
...and that it's stopped snowing where you are!!

Blessings from the farm,
~ Lori ~

Hi Lori!
I love your frame gallery...it has a nice warm look to it.

It has been snowing here in the Buffalo area since Halloween...I don't think it is ever going to stop. Ugh! One good thing I am doing is staying snug inside most days. I wanted to tell you that I stitched your pattern "Jingle All The Way". It came out wonderful, I love it. I haven't decided if I am going to frame it or make it into a pillow. I am leaning towards a sawdust pillow. Next I will be starting "Ahh...Tis Spring". I can't wait! Thank you for such great patterns. :)

Hugs,
Kimmie
