Here is a great example of a shadow box! This is a framed scarf from the Elvis impersonator that came to the casino. The background is a collage of photos taken during the concert, and below is a picture of the woman who received this wonderful gift with Elvis, and her tickets!
This is a great example of a VERY fancy framing job for a wedding invitation, wedding certificate, and the broken glass from the wedding ceremony. WOW!

These red paper cut-outs looking fantastic in a red laquered wood frame. What a perfect fit!
This is an example of how you can make two smaller frames look like one substantial frame. Our clients really needed this piece to make a statement, so we doubled up two frames for them. WOW!
These two pieces were restored by Jim, our restoration and appraisals professional! Once the paintings were brought back to mint condition, we framed them to match for our client. We are VERY proud to these two beautiful antique pieces.
This is a pretty cool way to utilize a wood frame that comes in all different colours!
This drawing on velvet really impressed us! We think the framing looks pretty good too See the photo of the actual dog below…what a great rendering using pastel by a local artist!
This 42″ x 78″ tapestry has been stretched over a stretcher bar, just like a canvas!
Here is an example to show how canvases don’t always have to be put on a stretcher bar. This one, purchased during a client’s travels, has been mounted and framed with two woods. The smaller yellow wood frame matches perfectly and gives the piece a really unique hint of colour!
This is a great way to keep your concert memories. One of our clients (and special friend!)frames all of her concert tickets together at the end of each year.

I cannot express what a wonderful birthday gift Heather gave me by way of your gallery. It’s not too often I get choked up but the presentation of “Fencing Pliers” was absolutely wonderful. The importance of the two tools in my life made them a wonderful gift.
The newer and sharper nosed set (most people can’t tell the difference) were
owned by my father and were always easy to find in the tool box of the 1969
Ford 3000: I still own the tractor. They went everywhere with him and
served many purposes around the farm beyond fencing, from hammer to sliver
extractor. I never thought of my dad as a surgeon but in the middle of a
project he improvised in what ever way he had to. My father is gone now but
every time I see the pliers I am reminded of his life lessons of integrity,
honesty and enjoying the people around me.
The older (and maybe wiser) set were owned by my mother’s father. In his
later years he stayed with us for a time and he was more easily found either in
the fields or the woods rather than in the house. I think he more than
helped out since his eighty some years of experience were always useful for
livestock husbandry, arboriculture, horticulture and general opinions of the
world. Like my father, “Grampa” is long since passed but he
provided his own life lessons; have fun, enjoy the company of women and always
talk to strangers.
I have my own set of pliers that are still active in service and over their
relatively shorter life have grown smooth in spots and rough in others (much
like me). They may never be presented like the two I received for my
birthday but all three are cherished for not only what they have done but for
what they continue to do each day.
DIFFERENT KINDS OF GLASS TO CHOOSE FROM
If you need something framed with glass and would like to have hardly any glare on the piece, anti-reflective glass is perfect! Non-glare glass creates a frosted look to your image, and sometimes leads to dimming colours. AR glass keeps all original colours in tact, and removes almost all glare that regular glass can cause. AR glass comes with either 70% or 90% UV protection.
These posters are 34″ x 36.” The piece on the left has AR glass, and the piece on the left has regular glass.
This was one of the most thoughtful Christmas presents we ever helped with
Nancy framed this Olympic Torch for Mayor Eddie Francis! She really can frame pretty much anything
