Create a gallery wall and display them in various frames! You can change them around as you like!

  1. I love the idea of having a gallery wall where all the frames are leant up against each other--so, so pretty!

  2. How clever! I just read your guest post. I am more amazed learning more and more about you! What a wonderful collection....and a fabulous great idea for a powder room. I am just trying to round up 9 or so photos of our immediate family that was Christened in the Christening Dress to display on the glass console the dress hangs over.
    So happy for any old photo ideas.

  3. This is a great post for me today as I try to figure out what to do with all my framed photos. The frames are all different and I don't want to waste them so I am loving the idea of a collected feel!

  5. This is wonderful. As the family photographer, I was called upon to gather photos for my Dads services last week.It has helped in the healing process. Something happens when you bring the old and the new together...it closes the gap and everything seems to carry on. I see My Father in one sons eyes, and the other sons round cheeks and my daughters smile...

    speaking of photos, I absolutely love your new photo it captures you beautifully...

  6. Oh wow! How have I never seen this before! India Hicks...she just rocks my world.

    I did something similar in our dining room and had intended to use all one color frame, but I ran out and ended up loving the way the mix looked.
