Flowers are beautiful. When they’re dead and in a frame.

Proving once again that we can frame practically anything, the über crafty staff at our North Andover location sent us these photos of some dried flowers from 1950. The design they used came out looking so great that we had to share ’em right away. How does one securely attach delicate flowers that are over half a century old? At first, we were stumped too, but their solution was elegant and simple. They attached a sheet of acetate over the flowers before matting them. Three fairly neutral but still complementary mat colors were selected – anything less than 3 would not have looked deserving for such a beautiful item. Then, they added Museum Glass so as not to add any glare to the acetate – Museum Glass is 99% reflection-free. You can tell right away that this
piece would definitely be the highlight of any living space. Great job, you guys!
