A Wee Bit of Framing

I picked this up today...it is the Forget-Me-Not Sampler by the Drawn Thread.  I posted it a couple months ago.  The last time I was home I saw this frame, one that my dad picked up at an auction.  The top part had a picture of a World War I-era soldier, and the bottom was a mirror.  Dad had hung it on his "military memorabilia" wall, but since the soldier wasn't anyone we knew and wasn't even identified, I convinced him that he should let me use the frame for some needlework.  :)  As you can see, I replaced the mirror with cork board, and I've hung it in the kitchen next to our garage door.  It only cost me $20 (I had my framer repair the frame a bit and lace the needlework), so I'm quite pleased!  We'll see if Dad notices it tomorrow when he comes out for Thanksgiving dinner...
