framed vintage linoleum

i found some old linoleum under the drysink in our barn this weekend and decided to clean it up and frame it.  there's more out there so maybe i'll do a couple more of these and put them in the shop some time.



plus while i had my camera out i snapped a picture of this vintage rug i bought at auction.


and also the beginnings of my garden this year.  it was so relaxing to be in the garden this mother's day.  and i'm kind of loving on the pea trellises i made.  plus in the middle picture you can see weeny baby lettuces in the bed in the foreground.  i just snickered to myself when i typed weeny.

Your linoleum looks so good. I would love a garden just like that - unfortunately we have 4 maple trees in our backyard casting tons of shade. Gotta love Canada ;)

I've never seeeeen such pretty linoleum! And I love the frame choices. I can never find little old frames that I care for.

WOW I absolutely LOVE the linoleum.
I found some small pieces. I may work them into a project later this summer. For the moment I can show hubs your beautiful framed pieces. I will say "See I am NOT an insane pack rat" LOL
