My Song of the Seasons returned home yesterday. I had sent it to Jill Rensel for framing, and she and her staff once again amazed me with their work!!
It arrived packaged amazingly well. Everything was bubble-wrapped, cardboard everywhere and then wrapped again. One day, I will not be so excited for a shipment from her and I will photograph how well everything is put together for shipping.
I had asked Jill for something "fatigued" that would give the piece a type of instant vintage look. I think she found the perfect frame for it!
I have hung it in the living room so that it is visible to anyone allowed in the home. I love this project, and I am so glad that I was able to complete it and send it out for Jill to frame.
On a side note - the hubby and I learned a valuable lesson. Language acquisition is not only important but vital. We have shared our limited knowledge of our family's native German, but I failed to allow my girls to READ in the language. So, the middle daughter had a fit when she was reading that the Koehler Family should "DIE". "Why do you want our family to die?!?!" She could NOT understand why I was laughing so hard. I had to explain the language again and then she calmed down.
