Frames for Paradise Lost

Recently I sent my Paradise Lost to my Mom to help me pick out a frame.  She took it in to Lynn's to pick out frames and sent me some options.  I narrowed them down and then she went in and picked one based on my narrower choices.  I'll tell you in my next post which I picked but here are the choices.  And, if you look closely you can see that I added my initials over one in a silk color to match the linen in the lower left hand corner.  I did the same with the date in the lower right corner.  I love how this turned out as my personalization is there but doesn't detract from the piece. 

Option 1:


Option 2:

Option 3:


Option 4:


Option 5:

Which option do you like?  I'll tell you in my next post what I chose and it was a hard choice!  I love Lynn's for framing, they have so many neat frames!  I'm sure that if you need a piece framed they can do something similar for you.  Just click the link to get to their website and call or email them to get started. 


  1. My choices in order would be #1, #2, and #5. I'm not very good at making decisions. You really can't go wrong with any of them!

  2. Looking at the pictures I think I like the 4th one the best :-).

  3. All of the frames are so nice. I think I like Option 1 - it doesn't overpower your beautiful stitching. :)

  4. All beautiful choices! And I love how you put your initials on the piece - great idea. I think any of them would be perfect - can't wait to see it framed!!
