Yard Sale Makeover

This summer I found this framed, machine-embroidered "LOVE" at a 
yard sale for $5.  I originally bought it with the intention 
of turning it into a pillow that I could sell on Etsy.
 
 
It was simple and elegant, and it beckoned to me.
 
 
 
It sat on my bedroom dresser for quite awhile and during that time, I fell in 
love with it ~ only it needed a different frame.
So ~ I paired it up with this chippy, more ornate frame
that I found at a flea market.
 
 
  I think now it's definitely a keeper.

I am absolutely smitten with it as well! OH MY!!! You have given me inspiration through this post to do something like this in my girls room! I am hoping to make some pieces and wouldn't this be cool for a gallery collection?!?! So beautiful and I love the frame you paired it with! What a great find!!!
