groovy in the 70s, just as groovy today

Does your home need a splash of fun and funky?  A groovy, gorgeous 70s sampler might be just the ticket to wake up your walls, or your sofa, or your console table . . . get out and go on a hunt at your local Goodwill, Salvation Army, or consignment shop!  Look for needlework with in good condition with graphic appeal and bright colors.  You can use the piece as is if the frame is in good condition, as we did with the wild and crazy birdy in the back, you can stick a smaller piece in an off the rack frame (this beaded  one's from Target) (just pull the piece tight over cardboard backing), or, if you're handy with a sewing machine, you might make a really sweet pillow, like our totally groovy swirly one.  However you use them, these blasts from the past make really cool art and accessories for today!
