Display Photos

shutterfly photo album

This past summer we moved my mother into a nursing home.  As part of the process we found photo albums in the back of the closet.  A few years earlier when my parents first moved out their home, we went through boxes and boxes of photos.  I started thinking, what is the point of having all of these photos if no one looks at them?

When I got home I made a point of starting to display our photos.  I started with a gallery wall.  I got a variety of black frames and filled them with black and white photos including some cool old photos from the 1920's from our families.

The next thing I did was start to take our digital photos and made them into Shutterfly books.  I was thrilled with how these turned out.  I will definitely be scanning some photos and making more books.

Don't keep those photos in boxes.  Display them!  I would love to hear what you do with your photos.
