National Postcard Week and Mother’s Day

National Postcard week and Mother's Day piece
Celebrating National Postcard Week and Mother’s Day

It’s National Postcard Week and Mother’s Day week. What’s a postcard loving picture framer to do? Combine the two celebrations! Here’s a postcard from the approximate time period that Mom is standing in front of the Traymore Hotel in Atlantic City, NJ.

The matting and frame have simple clean lines.  Usually I will cover the edges of a photo, but I could not part with the deckled edge  of this one.  The red core mat board continues the fun theme from the postcard.  The frame is from Larson Juhl, showing a hint of red and black wash.  This will eventually be displayed….at the beach!

Twelve Years of Photos

School Photos Framed
Twelve years of school photos is always an eye-catching project.

One of our favorite assignments at Whispering Woods Gallery is when we are asked to showcase 12 years of school photos.  This Newtown mom saw our Whispering Woods Gallery shop sample years ago and saved each wallet size photo for both her son and daughter.  This is a lovely display using a simple white mat with navy blue trim, which are the school’s colors.  A simple white frame with a beaded ornamentation frames the school photos.  A UV filtering glass by Tru Vue was used to help prevent fading over the years.  Not only do we think this is great design but the world wide framing community thought so too!  We are proud that we won a third place in the Larson Juhl Design Star contest in the Photographs catagory in January 2014 for a similar design for this graduate’s older brother.  Congratulations to the Class of 2015!
