Here at Fabulous Frames & Art, we are absolutely tickled at a recent project we designed for a customer of ours, which was a gift to his wife on their 25th wedding anniversary. As you’re planning your Valentine’s Day gifts, or perhaps a different gift-giving occasion, hopefully this sentiment-filled shadowbox will inspire you.
This shadowbox includes images of a recent trip the couple took to Florida:
And, a poem that our customer wrote to his wife on the occasion their wedding anniversary:
Also, a cute drawing of a couple on a tandem bike:
Around these pieces is a collection of 25 shells that our customer collected on the beach during the trip. Each shell represents a year of marriage, which is referenced in the poem — “individually, all of them have flaws, but taken as a whole, they are priceless.” Every shell is individually mounted onto the cream-colored silk mat:
Here are some other examples of the extra special shadowboxes we’ve designed for our customers over the past few years, including framing baby shoes, a set of collectible pins from a trip to Walt Disney World, Cincinnati Reds baseball cards, fishing lures, antique keys, and a Purple Heart medal.
