My orange walls are sporting some vintage needlework this week. Vintage needlework with lots of sentimental meaning for me.
And I do.
I remember these pieces well. They hung in my grandparents’ formal living room, above a large old chair.
I can remember sitting in that room on special holidays and seeing these little stitched people framed on the wall.
Even more special to me? My great-grandmother, who hand stitched these for my grandma, wrote a note on the back. It’s probably the only thing I have with my great-grandmother’s writing.
I gave the frames a bit of a paint update, spray painting them antique white …
… and rubbing them with a dark stain to give them an aged look.
They’re hanging in my orange hallway along with some other pieces that I love. I like to think my great-grandmother would be pleased to see her needlework hung in my home all these years later.
Do you have any family treasures in your home?
