Hope everyone has had a good week so far and are looking forward to the weekend. I'm looking forward to getting a few things done this weekend. One of my projects that I've been slowly trying to work on is a family picture gallery going up my stairwell. I have been searching the internet for different inspirations. I came across a blog run by photographer Kristen Duke. I have really enjoyed looking through her posts. She has a lot of advice when it comes to photography and decorating with portraits. In September, she ran a special series on using portraits to decorate with and invited guests to post every day of the month. It was really fun to see how others use their family pictures to decorate their homes. This month, she is doing a link party for anyone who wants to join in to share what they have done. Sooo, that is what this post is all about. I am going to share only some of the places where I have used pictures of family to decorate my walls. Those of you who know me well know that I love pictures and use them everywhere. I am only going to share some of the places but it still may seem like a lot. So here goes. We'll start off in the living room.
|My son's side.|
|This is also in my living room. I have mixed a few pictures in with my pitcher collection. I like the variety there.|
|I do have this one above my dresser but I will probably do more. I would like to do more formal ones to replace the ones of the kids.|
|This is at the end of the so-called hallway. These aren't technically photographs but they are drawings taken from some photos that I took a few years ago. A very talented friend of ours did these for me and I love them!|
So I'm linking this up to Kristen Duke's link party so go check out her site and what others have done with decorating with portraits. So until next time...
Have a blessed day,
