I know I Have asked this before on here but I am still desperately searching for the style of frames seen here:

http://waldorfmama.typepad.com/waldorf_mama/2010/10/corners-of-home.html 

I remember last time I posted this question Nicole from Frontier Dream got back to me and to me that the man who made them at Nova Naturals has gone into retirement. I was wondering if anyone knew of anywhere I could buy some similar frames? I don't mind if I have to have them shipped from the USA to the UK!

This isn't a frame, but it is a cute way to do some postcards.

Again, not exactly a frame, but might work. Just scroll down.

I don't have time to double check, but I think Nova Naturals sells them.

They don't anymore, the guy who made them is retired

This is the closest thing that I have found

http://www.etsy.com/listing/61791637/hand-carved-frame

I don't have one, but this is as close as I've been able to find!

 

I was waiting to place my order when they stopped carrying them so I had one in my cart (at Nova) and then when I did they were out of stock bawling.gif

OMG, I think I would have cried too! Thank you so much for looking on Etsy for me! They are quite similar to what I was looking for.....but now I realise, and this is going to sound so fussy, but I think I prefer glass in the frames (I know none of these curved style frames had glass in them at all) so i might just get a glazed postcard frame in a nice wood...a bit boring I know!

I liked the little small holder, they actually have some of those in my local waldorf shop, so I might get a couple for the season table to put seasonal postcards in them. Thank you!

Hi I have been lurking around these forums for a while...LOL

I have just purchased some from here, from a recommendation from a different thread.

if you do a search in the top RH side for postcard frames they come up.

 

they look great.

Those are really neat! I've gotta try to make some. :) They would make great Christmas gifts!

I think I just replied with this info on your other post but just in case I'll repeat it. :)  Our local Rudolph Steiner College bookstore sells them and they are beautiful!  If they don't have them listed on their website just call them and I'm sure they would be happy to send one to you.  Here's the link to their site: http://www.steinercollege.edu/store/  Hope this is helpful.  :)
