Robert O'Donnell  In ‘88 I became a picture frame designer and manufacturer. In 2015 I started brokering deals for framers/ galleries w/ the best boutique frame makers!

The Holiday Express: Countdown to Christmas. Almost everyone’s going to need last minute presents or hostess / host gifts this week! These one-of-a-kind shadow boxes from Annie of @personalizedinspirations would be a welcome addition to any home! And they’re perfect for that Ms. or Mr. Christmas we all know and love! .

Fun Frame(r) Friday: Holiday Explosion! For years, Chris Meyer of @artcompanypv has created limited edition art and photo frames for sale on his Florida shop. These Dynamic December Debuts have become a “thing” for Chris’ clients and have helped make Art Company a holiday shopping destination spot in Ponte Vedra! And that’s a great takeaway for framers nationwide. Shop Small! .

TBT to the Simpler Things. Around 2005 or so, I made a conscious effort to create simpler carvings for my RPF client’s. Since I was launching the Rustic Amara (Dark Cherry) finish around this same time, I was afforded the perfect platform to debut these subtler patterns. This particular design (on a traditional Louis profile) -an early favorite of mine- immediately struck a chord with customers so an all-gilded sister version was born! Thanks to Ali for the walk down memory lane. .

Woodworking Wednesday - Stage 2. After he finished playing with and laying out his exotic wood blocks, Myles of @woodworksimagery put his vision into production. He painstakingly created these sexy wood combos for his new line (for @wcafexpo) but I still don’t know where it’s leading. Oh the frustration of not knowing! I’m excited just looking at these handmade lengths so I know it’ll be great!Stay tuned ...

Woodworking Wednesday - What Up Wit This? Myles of @woodworksimagery is getting a jump on Vegas -@wcafexpo. This is the first clue he gave as to something exciting and new coming down the pike! He said from the start that he loves to “think outside the tree” and it looks like he’s a man of his wood-we-word. It’s just an arrangement of blocks but I’m already excited!

Two for Tuesday: Another Limited Edition. The response to these one-of-a-kind cattle-hair photo frames from @houseofmercier was so overwhelmingly positive that the original run sold out! We all know that @mercierandres and his artisans hate to disappoint so they’ve replenished stock of the original designs (in black/white and brown/white hair) and have expanded the line with more hide hair & leather combos! Remember, each piece is still a one-off as no to hairy hides match. For further info, give me a shout! .

Mensch Monday - Celebrating the Last Night of Hanukkah! On this eighth-and-final night of the Festival of Lights, I’m joined by (from top left) @houseofmercier, @quattroframeworks, @cdnv, @blackrabbet and @wsgframes in wishing all of our friends and clients Chag Sameach! .

Saturday Special: “You’re a Drinker, Mr. Grinch.” During the holidays, you have a choice. You can buy mass-produced gifts online or at the big-box stores OR you can think outside the (big) box and go for unique, handcrafted items from your local gift shop or picture framer. I’m loving these hand-painted Grinch wine glasses from @jacquisuniquedesigns of MA! This prolific artisan has so many cool and creative pieces that you could probably find something for everyone on your list! .

Fun Frame Friday: Peace, Love & Understanding. A new client has been exploring ideas and options for a rare psychedelic ‘60s poster. One of his references was this “far out” one-of-a-kind carved frame he saw. The fluid shape and hand-carved peace signs make this a truly perfect frame for this Jerry Garcia print and a great jumping-off point for my client’s project! .

Throwback to Peruvian Eglomise Frames (and their unexpected uses!). When Valerie Solaas of @aroundtheedgewpb saw this @houseofmercier handpainted glass frame, she knew she’d found her Christmas display frame! For years, Valerie’s been creating mouse dioramas for the holidays. For this exceptional miniature “First Christmas,” Valerie allowed the colors in the glass to inform the palette of the scene. The painted patterns also lent an innocent ‘days gone by feel’ to the piece. Talk about Creativity! .

Woodworks Wednesday: As Long as We’re Showing Off Hand-Carving ... Recently, the crew of @cdnv were tasked with recreating a sweeping Louis frame (in real wood!) and from a photo for a client. These artisans like to embrace a challenge so they responded with a confident “No problem!” and got to work. On special projects like this, Chris prefers to be the principal carver so in these photos we get to see his woodworking prowess! The end result was simply stunning and, expectedly, the client was ecstatic! .

Two Artisanal Carvings for Tuesday. The carvers of @quattroframeworks are true masters of their craft. Whether a classic French-inspired design or a more modern wrought-iron-esque double-heart pattern (@isee_lodonn ), the Master artisans approach each with the same talent and artistry of the old masters. Your frames truly could not be in better hands!
