Framed Vintage Rocco Feed Sack

I’ve got a second lake house update for you this week!  I shared my mom’s vintage inspired guest room at the lake and now I have an update in our family room, a framed vintage Rocco feed sack.

My mom gave me several Rocco feed sacks and I picked the one with the most vivid color to frame for the lake.

I really like how it looks in this corner of our family room.Framed Vintage Rocco Feed Sack - virginiasweetpea.com

I had a Goodwill found paint-by-number in this corner but much prefer the bold look of this feed sack in this spot.

I had this feed sack framed locally at The Framery on Memorial Avenue.  They also framed the 1943 “Our America” vintage poster series that I used in this room at the lake.

I wonder over the years other ways that people made use of feed sacks from Rocco.

I used to love to go to Farm Bureau in Waynesboro with my dad or grandparents.  In my mind I can still smell the feed.  As a teen, I liked to shop the horse section and loved that I could charge what I purchased to my dad’s account.  He was sweet and never complained about my purchases.
