Wall groupings

POP!

POP!
How many times have you walked through a room and thought that it needs a little something?  Why not place a wall grouping in the space to give it some pop? Many of Little's Photography's clients pick a series of photos to frame from their shoots, and we at THE FRAME STUDIO love to frame these collections for wall groupings.  But you don't need to limit yourself to just photographs . . . add in mementos from a trip, or keepsakes from family members - things that are connected with the grouping.  Whether you frame them to be a symmetrical grouping to add balance to a space, or an asymmetrica...

When Opposites Attract

The decision to move in with your partner or spouse is an incredibly exciting one. But in the midst of all the excitement, there are many things to consider and many choices to make. First, you need to decide on where it is you’ll inhabit - your place or theirs? Then you’ll need to work out such things as whose iron stays and whose iron goes - you certainly don’t need two.

Make Your House a Home
Are you wondering what it is that makes a house a home? Well, we’ll get to that. But how about the things that don’t?

Dust that gets into awkward corners, nooks and crannies, dust that doesn...

5 Generations of Walter Mathews
Last year Walter Mathews the 5th told me that he had 5 generations worth of Walter Mathews photographs and memorabilia.

Frame Shop Open Late for You

This picture was taken at about 11:30 pm.  We had designed about 25 different pieces at this point for Deb.  Most of which will be a wall grouping of family photos (stay tuned to see those when finished) but this last one was a doozy.  It is a document from 1874 that was awarded to her great grandmother in Hungary (happens to be where Bela is from) that announced her as an official midwife.  This was very uncommon for a woman to have a career.  We will post the finished piece soon.  I think we only shared one bottle of wine this night.  Good times.
