Great things are done
by a series of small things
-Vincent Van Gogh

Going home, going home
By the waterside I will rest my bones
Listen to the river sing sweet songs
To rock my soul
“tongues in trees, books in the running brooks,
Sermons in stones and good in every thing.
I would not change it.”
-As You Like It

Thy summer’s play,
My thoughtless hand
Has brush’d away.
Am not I
A fly like thee?
Or art not thou
A man like me?
For I dance
And drink & sing;
Till some blind hand
Shall brush my wing.
This C&J frame made this pretty little watercolor a showstopper. #handcrafted
Who’s the leader of the band that’s made for you and me?

Precious vintage spurs. Archival, removable in seconds.
Circa 1991, I framed this for a loved one and it’s still a favorite today.

What is more appropriate than Metallurgy to mount a Metallurgic diploma? Jim Miller’s signature formed rod mounts were the perfect solution, and we thought it paired nicely with this Larson Juhl frame.

We custom painted the detail on this moulding to match the piece. We love a challenge!

Siamo fatti l’uno all’altra- We’re made for each other. Antique Valentines and @RomaMoulding
I’ve framed many strange items in the last thirty years…but this Beatles Acid blotter paper was a first. #itwasclean #strawberryfieldsforever
“To be an artist means: not to calculate and count; to grow and ripen like a tree which does not hurry the flow of its sap and stands at ease in the spring gales without fearing that no summer may follow. It will come. But it comes only to those who are patient, who are simply there in their vast, quiet tranquility, as if eternity lay before them. It is a lesson I learn every day amid hardships I am thankful for: patience is all!”
-Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet
Yesterday was The Queen’s birthday, but true royalty arrived at @thevillageframer today. #hicks #wesleyallen #mirror #stunning

This Gicleé almost looks custom made for this Roma Moulding!
We aren’t professional photographers….but we loved the design too much not to share.
The substrate is cut to the size of the puck, creating a nice, firm cradle. No adhesives are allowed in securing these kinds of projects.
The riveted steel look of this frame is the perfect marriage.
A first grade masterpiece
This precious fan was attached by sewing and adding a few strips of Mylar.
