Don’t keep your memories locked up in an old storage box or file drawer! Framing your favorite sentimental items adds warmth and meaning to your home, instantly personalizing your space.
While the possibilities are endless, here’s just 5 of my favorite things to frame:
Frame the lyrics to your favorite song or the song you first danced to at your wedding. Antiquing the sheet adds richness to the look.
There are so many beautiful maps! Cavallinis are my favorites! You can frame maps of places you’ve lived, places you’ve traveled to, or just places you would love to go!
Personal History Documents
A favorite paper your child wrote (or a telling one you did!), old love letters, postcards from a loved one – these documents all tell the story of you. Select the most important ones and enjoy them every day.
We all have our favorites from childhood. Framing our own vintage toys (or even a photo of them) can keep us young at heart and help our kids transition from childhood to adulthood.
So much family history and love is rooted in the kitchen! Do you have your grandmother’s old recipe cards, or some that you used to make with your mom? Frame the recipe (perhaps with a photo of you two making the dish!) and hang it in your kitchen.
