listen… if y’all don’t buy this I’m is happy to keep it for myself. handmade (by yours truly), this is a gorgeous standing frame, in a lovely rustic gold colour. it has a tiny snippet of a local tree, accompanied by a page from a vintage book. this page is from a book called ‘Freckles’ by Gene Stratton Porter.
Freckles is seemingly (there’s lots of pages missing so I couldn’t finish reading it, not sure what happens) a lovely book about a young man who makes friends with a bunch of animals in a swamp while he works there. this page is particularly beautiful, and ties the whole frame together. it is inscribed on the first page, as it was given as a gift in 1921, and then again to somebody else in 1936 ‘met liefde van mammie’. this book is filled with so much history, and each (remaining) page has so much character to it. I figured since I couldn’t read it, I’d share it!
excuse the poor photos… turns out I can’t photograph glass properly (:
styled alongside art (which I shamefully still haven’t framed) from local artist Dayna-Gay Tate. check out her instagram @daynagay_studio for your own custom pieces or just for some beauty on your feed.
this frame has a dried plant specimen inside, so best kept out of direct sunlight. this will preserve the colour of the leaves.
If you would like a similar frame, I also make them occasionally, so feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
