Framed Antique Reproduction Sampler

This is just going to be a very short post because I  wanted to show you the framed sampler.  I ordered the frame from Valley House Primitives.  They are just wonderful to work with.  Janet is a stitcher.  She knows many of the colors and fabrics that we use so she is able to help you decided on a frame that will look wonderful with your stitched piece.  Here in the NW, we really don't have many traditional options when it comes to framing.  I always use Valley House Primitives for my special projects!  Thanks so much Janet!!

This is the whole frame.  The picture shows the frame a bit darker than it actually is.

It has these pretty golden colors. I used a lot of GA Heirloom Gold in the design.  The frame really enhances the colors in the sampler.


This type of faux finish looks so good with all of the antiques and decorating that we have in our home.

Thanks again Janet for your beautiful work! I hope you are all enjoying the week-end.  We are having amazing weather-75 and sunshine!  You can't beat that!
