Folk Art Frames ~


Happy Monday!
...here are some frames that I painted up yesterday ~


they are 8 x 10's & 5 x 7's ~

they are hand-combed, grungy & severely distressed,...

they have been carved & weathered to replicate
that primitive/colonial look we crave ~


stained & sealed with beeswax for a mellow glow...
...you can see the ones I have available on my
Picturetrail
they look wonderful holding your needlework, old photographs or notecards!

let me know what you think of them?
I'll be bringing some to the Summer in the Valley Show this weekend....

Speaking of the show, I have to get my butt in gear this week and pack for the show...
I still have things I need to stitch, paint & finish too ~

will any of you be at the show?
it will be a hot one this weekend for sure....
looking forward to the show, but not setting up in the heat~

*blech*


Joan will be my right hand this weekend,
...as Flea will be vacationing at the Beach...

Well I'm off to run errands ~
I'll show you the linen & threads for the
Sledding in Connecticut sampler this evening ~ !!

Blessings from the Farm...
Lori

Hi, Lori...these frames are PERFECT for reproduction samplers, among other things.
I'm adding these to the post I did on the
free pattern you gave us.
Warm Regards,

Lori, I think you did an awesome job on those frames. I love the distressed, antique look you gave them. That is so very much my style. Please make many more!! :-)
