    It’s Girl Scout cookie time! These young ladies from troop 994 are braving the brisk weather with a table in front of Corners this morning. Show them some support while stocking up on those thin mints! They will be here today and the next two Saturdays from 10 until 2.

    This is a companion piece to the vintage pen & ink drawing posted yesterday, showing more detail.

    Monday’s child is fair of face, Tuesday’s child is full of grace; Wednesday’s child is full of woe, And Thursday’s child has far to go. Friday’s child is loving and giving, Saturday’s child must work for a living; And the child born on a Sabbath day is blithe and bonny, and good and gay. Vintage […]

  • I Am A Framer

    http://cornersframeshop.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/framer.jpg

    New visitors admiring the amazing art in my shop always ask if I am the artist. My reply is that although everything is created locally, I am just “the framer”, which is a very simplistic title for the service I provide my customers. A fellow framer, Chris Chewning, has very thoughtfully and eloquently written what […]
