1840 Sampler Framed

Yesterday we got more of this...Love it but hoping for spring now.This has been the longest,coldest,snowy winter we've had in a long time...
Remember this? I finally got it framed.I was pricing new frames and boy are they expensive in the large sizes....
Then I remembered I had a antique frame on the sunporch it had a old charcol of a farmer and house. I think it was the perfect match....
I've left this space empty since I re did the living room waiting for something special. This was the right piece..Do you ever do that leave empty spaces till you find the right piece?
Hope you girls are having a great week. The next few days are frigid but we are supposed to reach 40's by the weekend.Me and my nieces are dealing with their mom moving back to town very traumatic for us but grandma says she is going back to jail.I don't speak to her and to be honest it's the one thing I pray constantly about because I let the anger and hatred eat me every day. For some reason I can't let it go and forgive and move forward.It doesn't hurt her, it hurts me.I'll just say it's better for me and the girls when she is out of state or in jail. So all you ladies that pray maybe send up some for me and my nieces,My step dad I'm sure is very upset as well. So on a better note I got all the spring stuff out and all the winter stuff put away so even if it's still winter outside I have some spring inside. The new swap is posted click on the pic on sidebar for rules.hoping since old man winter came in like a lion,it'll be out like a lamb..smile..

How perfect is that frame? Sometimes you can find great frames on mirrors at the Mart stores too for less than what we would normally pay for a picture frame ;0) Prayers for you, I know this can be hard, I have one too...Peace♥ ~*~Lisa

Praying for you and your nieces. We are getting some more cold weather here in Alabama. ready for Spring to arrive. Large frames really are expensive. I usually look at thrift stores or wait until Hobby Lobby has custom frames/ready made frames 50% off.

Michelle said...

That frame is perfect for the sampler. Prayers for you and the girls. Family situations are always hard.

Penny said...

I agree with the above poster.... dealing with family can be SOOOO hard!!! We've had our share of difficulties, and I send my prayers for you and your nieces.... and hope it all works out.
That frame is just PERFECT!! It looks wonderful!
Stay warm.... spring is coming!!

Marsha @ Tattered Chick said...

The sampler looks perfect in its new spot!! Doncha love it when you finally find the perfect piece to complete a vignette!!!?!

Prayers headed your way, Amy. Letting go is very tough to do. Took me close to 30 years before I was able to let go of some ugly childhood garbage . . . and I have one more I'm still working on. (HUG)

Sending lots of prayers for you and the girls.
I simply love the sampler and that frame is just perfect. always leave the blank spot until I find just what I'm looking for and sometimes that changes daily. LOL!


oh Amy, that sampler and frame are beautiful...Love it! I know what you mean about forgiving...got one of those in my Family, and I am better off without that person. Sending you and your Family lotsa prayers and hugs, Linda

Amy...that frame is perfect for your beautiful sampler!! Sending prayers up for you and your nieces. Sending hugs your way too.

Jean @ Prim Crafts said...

The sampler looks very nice Amy. The perfect spot indeed! We got about 7 inches of that white stuff- last night on the news, they showed a picture of a store billboard that said -whoever keeps praying for snow, please stop- I thought of you instantly. Being the snow lover you are. LOL.
Sending prayers, I know all to well how difficult it is to let go, just glad the girls have you guys in their lives. Hugs~Jean

the sampler is perfect!!! Love it!!!
and...sigh... if there is one thing I know is the anger and yes hatred, since I had it for my sister... I send many hugs! Yes, it eats us more then them, because they are selfish. I went back to consoling after my sister passed... I have learned, we don't have to forgive those who have hurt us so...but close the door on it... easier said then done.. I have been working on it for a year now.. hugs for some peace! OLM

Morning Friend
I am praying here.
I know how hard it is to deal with family who do nothing but hurt.
It has been such a very long hard winter.
