Early Christmas Present

This Christmas, Aaron and I decided to give each other the gift of custom framing. (Wow, we are old.) He now has all four degrees and law certifications in the same nice frames for his new office (it cost a pretty penny, so it was also his “congrats on the promotion” present) and I got my beloved Goodwill cross-stitch reframed. Bringing it from the hideous 1970s (by my best guess) into a quirky cork frame perfect for the kitchen.





I have to admit, even though I fell in love with the cork, I’m afraid it’s a little too kitschy and not classic enough and years from now I or someone else will look at it in the same disgust I looked at the old one…. thoughts?

Here’s a pic that shows one of the other, more traditional frames/mattes I was also considering:
