Tuesdays Display Chain.....What's "Framed In"....

I'm joining in on Misi's Month long.....Tuesday Display Chain over at 1890 Gable House Musings Blog. The theme is to present anything we consider "Framed"...So here's my interpretation:

Here's a new piece that I purchased from Rhonda Tedder of Simple Thyme Prims....I love my new needle punch JOL~n~Keys....Look how it's "framed" in the rag stuffed homespun pillow. I have it hanging over a wooden shutter. One day I will sit down and do some punching....

Yay....We're finally getting a deck off the back of our house....I've waited for 4 loooong years hoping that we would do it ourselves...but alas we are not carpenters! I finally broke down and hired someone to build it for us...this went up in 3 days....would have taken us 5 years!! It'll be 24 feet wide by 20 feet long....I finally picked out the decking and railing....from Trex...its a composite/vinyl called spiced rum...dark brown with black streaks through it...also picked out white railings....I can't wait til the supplies gets delivered next week!!

Here's is a framed bench that I bought from the Letchworth Arts Festival several years ago...I love it...made of driftwood from Tennessee and pine wood "framed" flower box. One day I'll stain the wooden box!

Here's my most prized find from a few weeks ago. Found this bubble glass vintage photo of a baby girl born in 1925....The woman who sold it to me said it was her Mother!! She said they were moving to Florida and  didn't decorate in this style. I was happy to have found it though but sad that they wanted to give this piece away...I've been wanting to find a vintage tin "framed" bubble glass with a child so this is perfect!! It's a wooden "frame" with gold painting and just beautiful. I told the lady that I will treasure it forever and that I was hanging it up right when I got home....She was thrilled.

Here are my "framed" windows with sweet annie sitting in a preserved water bath in front of them....I had a great harvest and preserved most of my sweet annie bunches. They came out in an "olive" color and still smell divine!

Lastly here's a pic of my sunflower heads...."framed" in an enamelware baking pan....Not to worry, I left a ton of sunflower heads on the stalks for the birdies...

Go on over and see what everyone else has "FRAMED"......


  1. Patti,

    Love how you've displayed the JOL n Keys, so glad you like it, your sweet annie looks beautiful. What do you do with the sunflower heads??
    Have a great night!

  2. I love the JOL N KEYS ~ wish I knew how to do that. Great find on the baby pic ~ but how sad that she had to sell it. Your sweet annie is beautiful ~ mine didn't do well, I'll try again next year. I picked a bunch of sunflower heads and was going to bring them in the house until I saw little worms crawling around.LOL.
    Awesome job on all your Framed-In!!!
    Prim Blessings
