i’ve been meaning to get this vintage embroidery piece hung on my wall for a few months, but i definitely did not want a boring brown frame.
after much indecision, i chose an apple green for the frame. i’m still not sure if i totally heart it (too much green? should i have gone with pink? or blue?), but i like it for now. i actually might take some stain wax and age it a bit. on the other hand, i like how it is a bit fresh and vibrant against the older canvas. see with the indecision?
i’ve also been meaning to share my grandmother’s vintage embroidered hand towels. they aren’t in the best shape (they have impenetrable stains – believe me, i’ve tried), but i love their handmade charm. and i love that my grandmother stitched them way back when.
