Framing

Thank you all for your kind good luck wishes for my son's exams.
Today I will show you lots of frames. Some I have made myself and some were custom ordered. I love frames on my walls. Unfortunately I don't have many walls and now not even any free walls.
First a vintage cross stitch piece that my friend Marabeth sent me from a thrift store!(I love American thrift stores!) Unfortunately when I washed it the red colour bled. 
So I coffee died it.
And then framed it in a vintage frame I found on the curb.

Here you can see Barca with a watercolour painting my friend Ian sent me from England which I framed in a vintage frame I found at an antique store.



And here's one more cross stitched piece I made this summer and had framed.
Finally a print with its frame from the 70's I bought very cheaply at the antique market recently and had renovated a bit.
If anyone knows who the artist is please let me know.The signature is Frosar.

We are exactly in the same situation. We need more walls at home :))
