Most of us have special touches that we utilize to decorate our homes.
Without question, my photo collection is mine.
Even if I may brag, it is quite impressive!
I have assembled photos that tell a story.
This collection tells my family’s history … and more!
There are photos of the kids at Disney world; my daughter in her ballerina outfit; my son at his prom; my Mother hugging her grandson; the grandchildren; my nieces/nephews; yours truly; and so much more!
Recentky, I added a vintage piece of my great-grandmother Minnie that my Mother “handed down” to me. Dressed in a long wool coat and tall hat, we grew up hearing stories about her. One in particular was the tale of her pulling a man off of a horse. Looking at her petite figure, you wonder how!
Alright, great granny!
I am thrilled at the thought of placing such a prized possession of my great granny framed in an old oval wooden frame on my wall. It’s a family heirloom.
That’s right, these photos are very telling and historical. There’s a story embodied in each!
Many guests stay on the landing of the stairs for an extensive period of time wall gazing/viewing my photographic collection.
I have portraits, photos, and collages of the majority of my family. Assembly of the photographs is a continuous and meticulous undertaking.
Recently, my young great niece was photo gazing and said, “Aunt Verna loves us because she has our pictures on her wall!” How touching!
That comment paid for the frames and my efforts!
