If you came to visit us, you would find bits of memories from trips to China, our wedding day, baby photos, the time that Adam lived in Hawaii with his family and even a very special photo of me with my grandparents before my grandma passed away.
I always love to find new ways to display these memories, outside of generic square frames so I thought I would share some of my newest favorites tonight.
This is an obvious one, but such a favorite. I love the bold statement that an oversized canvas makes in your home. It's a great way to showcase extra special memories, like this moment from our wedding. I remember the minutes between ceremony and celebration. We were in this magical green spot in the woods, laughing so hard as I tried to balance on the handlebars of that old bike. I love having that moment above my creating space.
This is a great place for getting reasonably-priced canvas prints. We used them for a Mother's Day gift for my mom and we very happy with the rates and product. I am also really wanting to try out this method of printing and displaying large photos. Have you ever done this?! How did it work?
This is my newest favorite-favorite. The frame above ^^ used to have printed glass in it with a cheesy quote on love. I had Adam break the glass out and strung a piece of twin with small tacks on the back. Viola! Perfect place for hanging some favorite photos with little baby clothespins. I also love this because it's super easy to change photos out as desired.
Large, thrifted frames work great for this type of display. This one ^^ cost me $5 and two cans of spray paint.
This one is for the brave at heart who don't mind lots of holes in your walls. Hashtagraiseshandsheepishly
I used two tiny nails and hung my little 'photosline' directly on the wall. With more baby clothespins, I hung a some favorites; our last dance at our reception, Adam's and my first time of hanging out in Kunming, China (not long before he realized he really kinda liked me) and one of my sister and I. I also hung a few special mementos; a movie ticket from this Valentines Day, a ticket from our anniversary trip to Chicago and a brown paper heart for good measure.
