This week’s Freebie Friday is designer approved. Bob Richter, whose New York kitchen was featured as part of our Weekly Tours series, tipped us off to one of his favorite frame makers, Chris LeBeau. Chris’s frames are constructed of 100% recyclable materials and an organic non-chemical solution is used in the aging process.


We’re giving away two of Chris’s beautiful copper frames. For a chance to win one, answer this week’s question before 12/11c, Monday, July 19.

    What an interesting frame. I really like it for it is so different from any other frames that I have seen. It would look nice with my copper umbrella stand and my large copper tub. The best piece of a handcrafted item that I have purchased is a jewelery set of bracelet, necklace, ring and earrings. Made of silver and set with mytique topaz.. I also do handcrafting myself and truly appreciate the thought and the work that goes into a piece from all artisans.

    I have several wonderful handmade pieces from artisans in many countries, but my FAVORITE favorite is a gorgeous 23" long hand-carved bowl, made by monks in a monastery in Bulgaria. The monastery is actually carved into hillside rock, and the bowls they made had a texture to them that reminded me of the hillside. My bowl is shaped like a football and very thick, so it even holds large grapefruits, squash, etc.. It has a rustic look to it that makes quite a statement on the kitchen counter! I love buying handmade items from different countries and regions, and if they're functional, I love them even more!
