We got this frame from a neighbor, it was her great-grandmother's and holds many memories. The frame itself is more than 70 years old. We made sure to use pieces of wood that would add to the delicate beauty of the frame yet not over power it. This is a great piece to help ring in Autumn. We love to use materials that have a story and hope that the frame continues to add warmth to your family and memories that will be cherished for many Autumns to come.
