what's old is new to me

I was recently lucky enough to be gifted with 3 framed pieces created by my great-grandmother. All were probably craft kits that she completed for herself or others. They are done with crewel, so there is a very fun dimensional feel to the artwork. They, and their frames, have a funky vintage look that I love.

I will admit the dark brown background on this piece is not my favorite. However, I am enjoying something fresh on the mantel. I may bring it back out in the fall.


  1. Oh would Grandma Sonja be touched! I cannot imagine the patience creating those pictures took! Enjoy. . .

  2. I am very glad to inherit them and enjoy them. I have yet to hang the other 2 but I think I know where they are going.
