WW - Four Little Piggies All in a Row



There are tons of photographs of our family all over this blog and on my computer, but around our house, there aren't so many.  Sure, we have the requisite school and sports portraits and a couple family photographs in table top frames.  But we don't have photos on the walls.  I love visiting peoples houses where they have photos old and new on the walls and along staircases.  Our staircase?  Empty.

For Chinese New Year last month, Dova received her red envelope of money and decided that she wanted to spend it on clothes (always the fashion plate, this one).  We went to Old Navy, where she picked out some flare jeans (flare in size 6 = cute beyond belief).  On our way to the checkout, we spotted some clearance items from the holidays.  She immediately was drawn to these picture frame ornaments, which were marked down from $4.99 each to $0.49.  Even though the frames said 2009, I figured that it would be cool to take them out every year and remember what we looked like in 2009.

I finally got around to printing the photographs for the frames this weekend.  Trying to get all our faces the right size was like like trying to create passport photos.  Lots of rejects.  After all that work, I wanted to display the photos instead of storing them with our ornaments and found the perfect spot.  Let's take a closer look at this picture perfect family.


Doug and Angela.


Adam and Dova.

Maybe this will be the start of photos and collages in our staircase. And perhaps some real interior decorating for a change.  Then again, let's not get carried away.  Most of all, thank you Dova for buying these picture frames.  For more on the fish and house postcards, see this post.

Beautiful family.

I love the idea behind this and how you used the frames and photos as decor.

I too need to get my photos up on the wall and out of the computer :)

Well, they look very nice there. I have pictures everywhere but now that I am thinking about it we have not updated them in a very long time. I should get on that.
