What a Differance A Frame Makes

This is a piece that my maternal Grandmother made and my Grandfather gave to me a few years ago.  I wanted to put it in one of our bathrooms but the frame and mat just felt a little too '80's.
(I always forget to take before pics so after I got it re-framed
 I had to lay the old mat and frame on top for the "before" picture.)

 I found this old barn wood looking frame and switched them out. It gives it a much more rustic look than the clean modern look it had before.
I love it!

 It now has a prominent place in one of our bathrooms.
I love having things that belonged to or were made by my family around me, it makes our house feel more like a home!

Love the rustic stuff! I love cross stitch too! I think I will go back to cross stitch when I get old and gray! But by then I probably won't be able to see, darn! Maybe I will take up knitting! Love the bathroom, that shower curtain is fabulous!
