As you know I LOVE taking photos – both of everyday life and events and of our travels. I’ve never been one just to take photos and forget about them, which I guess is why I was drawn to scrapbooking. But my favourite way to share photos, besides on my blog, is to display them in my home. And until going around the house to take photos for this post I didn’t realize just how many I have displayed – and in different ways.
I apologise in advance for all the glare from the photo frames!!!
The first you thing you see upon entering our home is photos. The canvases that were just recently added to the stairwell and a frame photo of the girls.
Everyone coming into our home loves this portrait taken when Amy was about 5 and Christy 2.5.
Then at the top of the stairs is photo collages from some of our more recent trips. I had these printed at snapfish then mounted at a frame shop. The two on either end have yet to visit the frame shop.
After our next trip I’ll do collages for disneyworld and Alaska and get the 4 mounted in a second row.
I often stop here (it’s right outside our bedroom) and look at all the little photos – so many wonderful memories.
Of course you’ll find some more photos in our bedroom.
I’m waiting to get some new canvases here.
And both the girls have a number of frames.
The loungeroom has lots of canvas frames. If you’re wondering how we can afford so many it’s because Kevin can print and mount them himself – which is also why I have to wait to get more printed :-).
These are the ones I face when sitting in my spot.
There are a few frames above the TV.
The one beside it is a digital frame – which I love looking at as it rotates through photos. I update this every few months.
I think the family room probably has the most photos. We’ve got the wonderful display above the TV, showcasing our travels.
And plenty of frames in the two bookshelves.
Notice that one on the wall. Probably my oldest frame/collage with photos from our honeymoon. How young do we look?
Not quite finished yet…. there are other frames scattered throughout the house.
So, how do you showcase and enjoy your photos?
