Cleaning out a coat closet over the weekend, I came across a box of old mismatched gloves and mittens. This reminded me of a post I did back in 2013 about framing personal mementos. You can see this post, along with the awful photos I took here.
I never got around to framing those mittens, but I thought I'd put together a new post showing all the items I did manage to have framed. Especially since these have all now been professionally photographed.
Outgrown baby bathing suits, vintage scarves, the dress my grandmother made my mother (the very one she wore in her passport photo when she immigrated to America from occupied Germany) and my husband's varsity high school letter are a few of the things I've chosen to frame and showcase in our home.
I also have all three of my kids birth announcements in special frames hanging in my bedroom. These were a gift from a close friend. I love the idea of framing wedding invitations, milestone birthday invites, cards, love letters, concert tickets, playbills, vintage records - anything that holds special meaning.
What memorable items have you framed?
