Welcome!. I live in Oviedo, Florida with my handsome husband, two great kids and a pair of silly basset hounds. Oviedo is a little town where you can get a Barney’s coffee on one corner and have to wait for the chickens to cross on the next. I love to shop for vintage treasures to use in my home and artwork. Come along with me!
Happy White Wednesday! I'm working on some creative ways to display family photos this week. We are hosting a party Saturday for my mother in law, Jean, who will be turning 80 years old. I want to place photos around the house of Jean at various ages and stages of her life. The entry table will focus on her childhood. I have several very good black and white photos and two tables to use. Today I altered two cabinet cards with photos of Jean as a little girl. These cabinet cards will be the focal point of each entry table.
I wanted to keep the embellishments neutral so that the picture remained the focal point. I was just adding texture. Vintage lace and mother of pearl buttons seemed perfect for this 1930's picture. Here's another shot that I love of her standing in the garden.
I used this wooden frame display just for these shots. I won't be using it for the actual party. I will have some fun photo holders for the other black and whites that will join the cabinet cards in the displays. I'll share those ideas with you as I decorate this week so stay tuned! I hope you are having a great week. I'm linking this to -
