Who says decorating a home, or my case an apartment, has to cost you big bucks?  This is one of my favorite pieces of art hanging in my apartment.  What I love about it is that it looks very expensive, but cost me less than $20 total. 

It began with the beautiful needlepoint square, which I found for a $1 at the annual rummage sale at Temple Israel in the Uptown neighborhood of Minneapolis (a small investment for a very cool piece of needlework). 

A few weeks later I found the frame and mat on sale at Michael’s Craft Store for about $17 (maybe even less, I can’t remember now).  I matted the cloth in the frame and it was all set to go – a beautiful piece of artwork for a very small investment.  I’m always amazed by how many people like it and will comment on it.

Never be afraid to be creative when adding artwork to your home.
