Frame it!

Our collection of lovely family photos is growing by the day, and yet I haven't framed or hung any of them around the house! I want to, I intend to, and now that I have found these gorgeous handmade timber frames - I will!!

LA based Obrien Schridde Designs specialise in designing and making beautiful picture frames, with that slightly time-worn, weathered look of an antique piece. The frames are romantic in design and reflect the Schridde's appreciation for time gone by. Available in seven different styles, they are all elegant, classic yet subtle in their beauty, and they frame photos in the loveliest way. "Timeless, distressed, romantic frames - each handmade with care."

The founders, Louise Obrien and Daniel Schridde, armed with a collection of gorgeous family photos, created these perfect frames worthy of showcasing your favourite family shots, frames which look wonderful grouped together, or as a statement piece in each room. Available in a range of soft hues and styles which yearn for a time gone by.

They do ship to Australia, so you can finally do justice to those expensive family photos, or the more relaxed happy snaps! Your friends will have "frame envy"!

Thanks everyone!

Well, Mathilda's Market has come and gone - and what a great success it was! Brisbane City Hall was a beautiful venue to hold the upmarket market, and all the stalls were gorgeous in their display of products. Apparently there were about 900 visitors through the doors, which is pretty impressive for this niche market only open between 9am and 1pm! There was a lovely atmosphere from a warm and supportive crowd.

Thanks to everyone who came to visit Little Light House, we had a huge day in every way, and are further inspired to create our gorgeous wares!

Stay tuned for our next offerings......

Yippie yeah - it's almost here! Not long now and we will be showcasing our wares at Mathilda's Market here in Brisbane. This is a fabulous niche market that offers unique, stylish and affordable baby & kids goods that are lovingly handmade or of limited production. The retailers are hand picked to ensure an exciting product range. You will discover a vast array of funky, unique and gorgeous clothing, wooden letters, canvasses, soft & wooden toys, soft leather shoes, room decor, bags, paintings, etc etc - the list just goes on and on! All this for your little ones..... it is a kid's shopping heaven. Most of the retailers do not have a shop front, so you know you'll find something special on the day.
