What are we framing today? Yesterday and Today!
Have you ever been casually glancing through a pile of old photos in an antique shop or tag sale, and saw a photo of yourself – except decades before you were born?
That’s our story for today!
Our client brought in this black and white photo she found at an antique store. She was looking through a basket of old photos and was stunned to see this photo. The woman in the photo is the spitting image of her, and from a time in which our client wished she had lived, in a garden with a rose arbor (she loves rose arbors) with (yes, she knows for sure) pink roses growing on it.
There was no question in her mind the photo was of her – at another time, in another life.
There was no question this photo belonged in her home, up on her mantle.
We selected soft rose pink matting with a dark grey inner mat because we just knew for sure these were pink roses. The warmed silver frame has an entwined ribbon and flower motif. The photo is preservation mounted with conservation glazing to help protect the photo paper from UV damage.
Our client will be coming in today to pick up herself, so to speak!
I hope she is thrilled with this framed photo, and will step back to the times in the photo every time she gazes at it.
