My Christmas Presents

Have you entered my giveaway?

Yaya mentioned in response to my Christmas post that she would love to see the pictures my grandmother painted that B got framed for me for Christmas so I thought I would post them. My grandmother was an artist...she loved painting and anything crafty. These aren't even the best of the ones she did, but I am honored and happy to have them. Sorry the quality isn't the most amazing...the wrappers are still on them,! (And probably will be until we hang them up!).
This one is a pastel. The framing people thought the frame could be an antique (it was already framed), so all they did was clean it up, rather then put a new frame on it.

I really love the color of the water in this one.


I think these flowers look like iris'.

A farm in the winter time. I love this one. I especially love the birds. Here they are up close. :)

And those were my presents! Probably some of the most thoughtful I have gotten in a while. We just need to figure out the perfect places to hang them.

How special to have these. I have been looking for pictures to hang in my house and these would be great!
The iris is my favorite but I would hang any one of these.

Hang them proud they are awesome!

wow those pictures are beautiful! I would have hung them up too, especially with all the sentiment they have.

All my art in my house has a story behind it; like it was given to me from someone special, or a family member bought it for me on a trip, or someone I know painted them. I dont have any kitch art hanging and I hope to keep it that way. This kind of art I love not only because it's beatiful, but because it has a special meaning:)

I like the one by the water. It is like getting a hald of a story and you get to fill in the blanks. What a great gift from both your grandmother and your husband.

Wow! How lucky you are to have those! They ARE beautiful. And I DO love the antique frame. Is that a silver one or gold? If silver, they are harder to find and my favorite. I have one hanging on my wall with no picture in it. Just the frame, it's so pretty. Of course I'd love to have some artwork like you have!
