I came across a place called Picture Frames. It isn’t the place I usually order frames from but they had a discount code that made it very reasonable and I loved being able to insert the piece in the frame. It actually came to $39.40 with the discount and free shipping. See why I order the frames?
I’m not going to tell you which one I chose – I first want to see which one you would have chosen.
At first I was going to choose a few frames, then ask you to let me know which ones you liked but then I was afraid the discount code was going to expire and Teresa Kogut had a patreon livestream starting so I wanted to participate in that so I went ahead and ordered a frame. Here are the ones that I added to my cart.
For the pictures below, I hadn’t measured the exact dimension of the finished stitching, and the stitching wasn’t yet totally finished. Now it’s totally finished but wrinkled and I probably won’t have another picture of it til it’s framed. and on the wall.
I am not sure where I’m going to hang this. My first thought was to hang this in our bedroom. The walls in there are kind of a light sage green (I think . . I never pay attention). OK . . I found the pictures from when the house was for sale. We did buy this furniture from them so it pretty much looks the same.
So, if this was for the bedroom, I think that frame would look very nice but, for the most part, we pass through the bedroom to take showers, then we go to bed. We get up, go downstairs to take care of the dogs, go back upstairs to eat, don’t go back into the bedroom until time to go to bed and, honestly, we sleep in the basement bedroom more than we sleep in the main bedroom. So, I didn’t let the bedroom colors have a lot of influence on my decision.
The above frame reminds me of the frame I had wanted to use that was too small. That’s kinda what I had my heart set on ever since I saw this design.
The above frame . . I love the part that’s closest to the stitched area but as it goes out, I’m not sure about it. If I were to hang this on the walls in the hallway, or on the “happy home” wall in the foyer or maybe above Vince’s chair, I’m not sure if that lighter outside edge wouldn’t blend into the wall a bit. It wouldn’t be like you wouldn’t notice it but it wouldn’t make a statement at all.
There’s something about the dark frame with this piece but this one getting lighter at the edges is the same as #3 in my mind.
So . . any thoughts? Any favorites? Which one would you choose?
