Back from the framer, Part 2

The second of two posts to show what came back from the framers.

Green Apple's I Love My Kitty. I think the frame is just right for her. Matches her, goes with the fabric.

Simply Old-Fashioned's Like Feathered Wings. I didn't realize this would be this tight up to the design, but it works. Far better this than broad expanses of fabric. And the silver frame gives it a really modern feel. I think it really does speak "wind" to me.

Halloween Fairy by Nora Corbett. And detail of the frame. This frame was an accidental find. But, like anything good, it was worth the work. I love how the moulding picks up the green in the fabric, and has that free-flowing new agey feel. It's almost like it was meant for this design on this color fabric.

The lions, by Maria Diaz. The lady who was helping me said, "Oh, I didn't even know we had this moulding." I didn't tell her they don't. I think the frame might be a wee bit too big for this design, but I would rather have it too big and have a frame I love than too small and have an OK frame.

And these are even more spectacular! Make space for the ribbons!

Oh my hit the framed LOTTERY! WoW! I hate to think what the final bill was...but the beauty...all are gorgeous and in this batch that Mirabilia is stunning!

Beautiful, Rachel!

These look fantastic! I can't decide which one I like best - they're all so pretty. But I think the Nora Corbett might have just the slightest advantage. The framing for that piece is utterly perfect.

Wow Rachel! What a treat to stop by your blog today and see all these framed lovelies! I also can't decide which I like better but you're so right that the oval frame suits the little girl!
Just fab!

Wow! You have a lot of winners there! I love them all. The oval frame really makes "I Love My Kitty" special - kind of like an old photo.

Good luck at the fair!

Again, they are all stunning! I should get to mine and frame some up. The frames are so perfect for each piece.

I love the finishes...esp the Halloween fairy!

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
