On The Wall~

my-my-my...
This is the most magnificent home photo gallery EVERrrr!
~Thanks to the latest technology, we can now easily scan old family photos...
crop/enlarge/convert to black&white blah-blah-blah...& frame them up! ~I'm so inspired!!
Any of you display personal photographs around the house??? (I'm nosy like that!)

Truly beautiful. Do you think me a terrible boring housewife when another thought jumps up in my brain? Dust. (Yes, I agree, I need a cleaner... or train the man better).

Jude said...

So lovely, I love displaying personal photos (just not of myself! :))

Tia said...

That is awesome! We have a hall of photos, and because I'm not ashamed of how obsessed I am, they are ALL of my son!!

McVal said...

Love the display! Personal photos is all I DO decorate with, but not nearly as creatively as this!

It's a bit too much for me. My eyes would be racing in all directions whenever I paused to look at the wall of photos.

This is gorgeous! I like to frame old b&w's and frame them. I also scan color photos and print them in b&w. It's a cheap and fun way to make family photos really look amazing.

Oh, it's so good to visit you, Lenore! I've been away from blogging most of the summer and am just now getting back into my rhythm. It's been a crazy time!

Hugs to you, sweetie! xoxo Gigi

Homemaker Man said...

We have the two little ones so of course, we've got photos balanced precariously on every available bit of shelf space.

Katie said...

I love it!

Sam said...

This is soooo awesome! I've been enlarging some really old teeny tiny family photos for my Dad lately and framing them - he is so overcome when I give them to him - I really recommend it as a present!

pinkapplecore said...

I would be so afraid my cat would jump up and knock them down. in the middle of the night be awoken to the sound of smashing glass....ug chills!

Poppy♥ said...

Ren- Lady Of The Arts said...

Great frames- I like how they are placed low.

Michael Rivers said...

This is fantastic!! I'm saving this picture. Hopefully one day I'll do the same!

Gabbi said...

Gorgeous wall and I do dear Lenore... I have several old family photos up around the living room. But I do have to move them around, the whole living room area needs new decorating ideas... ♥

Bron @ Baby Space said...

Yip - sure do! And we do it like this, only not as many - so not as cool.

Old Cow said...

Oh wow!

The effort, the display, the look...it all makes me swoon. Much better than a digital frame if you ask me but then you need a massive house!

SabinePsynopsis said...

Just back to wish you a wonderful loooooooooong weekend (you lucky Americans!). And to satisfy your curiosity - I do have a few family pictures on the wall, but not many. (Sometimes when I come into family homes ALL the walls are plastered with their family pics I can't help feeling slightly overwhelmed by so much family-tude)... Okay, enough babbling... xo

SabinePsynopsis said...

... can't help it, sorry, forgot: and not on the fireplace, no, not for me!

Savvy Gal said...

I love this!

shopgirl said...

Awesome wall! I love displaying photographs in our bedrooms. I'm working on scanning old family photos too.

Thanks for the reminder, I've got to get off my bug and start doing more.

Cheers!
