Haven't we all had fantasies about the perfect vacation and meeting the man or woman of our dreams? Just the two of you walking hand in hand as if no one else exists. The warm summer breeze blowing through your hair, the smell of suntan lotion, the sand caressing your toes, and the salty scent of the ocean. Looking into each other's eyes and wanting the moment to never end. Aaaah, life is beautiful. Not a worry in the world. If you believe, when you least suspect it, your fantasy will one day present itself and will leave you smiling.

We use the finest wood available. The wood is given a look of forged, hammered metal. It looks like an old pewtered mug one would find in an European castle. The frame will fit well with a contempory environment or a traditional home. The finish is neutral with a width of 2 5/8" and Rabbet 5/8".
