I am such a sucker for unique picture frames, especially if they are hand made by a fellow Alabamian. That’s why I adore Connor Claire Frames! They are local to Shelby County, and I’ve seen them at several different craft fairs around town, including the Helena Buck Creek Festival, the Moss Rock Festival and the Town of Mt Laurel Spring/Fall Festivals. They are a husband and wife team that named their business after their two children. So sweet!
Their frames are just amazing.
In 2008 I posted about this pretty frame I bought to go in the living room of my old house.
This was my very first Connor Claire photo frame.
That frame made the move from our old house and landed a coveted spot right in the nook of the staircase in our living room. I love the way it looks above my little kidney shaped table.
Here is my second Connor Claire frame:
This one is a turquoise distressed beauty with brown accents behind the three photo spots. I needed something long and skinny for this spot on my wall, and this frame fit perfectly.
Now I am the proud owner of a third piece from Connor Claire. I won this awesome clipboard frame during the Restore Alabama auction. Since it’s a clipboard you could actually put anything on it, not just a photo. A fancy place for your grocery list, perhaps? Or maybe a to-do list? Nah, it would need to be MUCH bigger for that. That’s what my iPhone is for.
Plus I have way too many photos of Garrett that need a spot to be displayed.
They have totally nailed the distressing technique on these frames. I love it. They are custom crafted all the way.
The biggest problem I have with these guys is choosing which frame I want to come home with me whenever I happen upon their booth! They have so many beautiful pieces it’s hard to decide.
If you are interested in purchasing a frame or placing a custom order, please email Taylor at [email protected] or call him at 205.902.3478. You can also “Like” Connor Claire Frames on facebook to keep up with their current events and inventory.
I hope you will check these guys out and show them some love! Tell them Beth at Unskinny Boppy sent you! 🙂
