Cute as a button -- Pet rats in an A.I. paper design frame
We love pictures from our customers showing how they use and display merchandise from our store. This sweet picture was just sent to us from Gina in Salisbury, showing one of our new handmade paper frames from a.i. paper design with the sweetest picture of her two pet fancy rats "Autumn" and "Summer" -- thanks Gina for the beautiful picture! (And the vase is also by Liz Kinder, another one of our artists!)

Hand Blown Glass Heart by Luke Adams, Massachusetts
"What I love about Valerie's Gallery is the variety of fine American craftwork, mostly from local artists. I own two of these beautiful heart-shaped glasses made in MA. This one hangs right above our kitchen-sink window, overlooking the marsh. It's so pretty, one can almost ignore the dirty dishes!" -Gina
Assorted etchings by Matthew Smith, N.H.
"My husband and I love collecting Matthew Smith prints! By clustering a few frames on the mantel as well as on the wall, we've created a charming sea-life theme. Beautiful. Simple. Elegant." -Gina
Box filled with pewter hearts by Vilman, R.I.
"On a magical evening after my first date with my now husband Jim, I found a feather stuck to my sweater. Nine years later, I have kept that feather, as well as Jim :). Today, it is encased in glass, along with a sprinkling of heart charms cast in pewter by Vilmain. Again, Valerie's personal service and special ordering helped me make a simple treasure into one of my most precious keepsakes." -Gina
Pewter Photo Stand and Paperweight by Vilmain, Rhode Island (top shelf)
"Pewter photo stand and two paperweights--I'm so happy that Valerie sells the elegant Vilmain pewters. You can even make special orders through her store. I have a collection of Vilmain paperweights and they are the first to greet me as I open my desk-hutch. With such whimsical, inspiring and functional design, I call them my "mini-gallery" for the home office." -Gina
