What are we framing this week? An embroidered pillowcase!   

Our client brought in this beautiful embroidered pillowcase that was embroidered by his grandmother. He told us he had many memories of visiting her in her home, and of the intricate needlework she adorned her house with.  After she passed away, the grandchildren were given something she had made as a keepsake.  His keepsake was this embroidered roses pillowcase with crochet edge trim.

What are we framing this week!

A crayon portrait from 1896!

You may remember the photo we posted a while ago of twins. Our client brought in another crayon portrait of a young child. She wanted to frame the new photograph in a similar frame style to go in another room in her house.

Crayon portraits were made from about 1860 into the early 1900’s. A “soft” photographic image was printed to a matte paper, and the detail was provided by the photographic artist in charcoal or pastel.
