A Collage


My house is devoid of family photos. I don’t really have a good reason. I am pretty dang proud of my family.  So when I saw this great idea in Ballard Design I decided it was high time to hang family photos. I like the way the photos aren’t lined up in any way, just willy nilly all over so that I can add more without a set pattern. All you need is a big blank wall:


A few of these will be up there:

This amazing photographer”s site is Red Shoes Photography. Go to her site and you can see the famous Henny & Penny hamming it up in a few of the photos. (photos here with permission)


Duck Dynasty-3

If you could see this photo really close, you would notice that Atlas and Valiant are very serious about this.

I get a kick out of Atlas carefully observing Valiant for how to place his hands on his hips. The seriousness of the matter, oh my.

Duck Dynasty-5

Out of the camo, back to being city boys.

And then Blue Filter Photography did a great shoot of Caitlin and Zac’s family. After Christmas. When the last thing three little people want to do is quit playing and pose. And can I just say it is no small feat to get Freyja not being a little pipster:

Starting with zero framed family photos, this is the  collage in progress. I have lots and lots of room for more. But it’s a start:

    Did you buy your frames anywhere in particular? Nice. I like that you are getting these pictures up.

  9. Terri says:

    Shari, I thought so too and thought, “heck, I wouldn’t mind glancing up at these people on the wall.” So at long last we are hanging family photos.

    This will be my summer project! Love it, Terri!

    Dianne, You will love the results. It is so great to go look at this wall of memories now. And I didn’t need to wait until the layout was perfect which was the real clincher for me.
