Displaying Treasured Memores with Class

I don’t have very many things left from my younger years at all. In fact, I had five subject notebooks filled from front to back with both sides of each page covered with all of my delicate thoughts and things that went on in my life. I had a whole bunch of pictures saved up from my childhood and when I had my first born with me. All of those lovely things got ruined because the storage building we were using got damaged during a terrible storm. So, I have very few pictures left worth displaying.

I have this ONE and I mean one picture of my Mom and I’s last ride that I treasure with every ounce of my being. It was the last organized trail ride we got to go on because Tripp, my horse, ended up getting heaves and there was nothing I could do to get him better from it. I have looked into so many ways of getting this picture preserved.

I’m not overly crafty as we’ve seen with my Crafty Wannabe Momma post. However, I’ve checked out some of my fellow bloggers suggestions for DIY picture frames. I looked around the web and came across Shanty-2-Chic’s DIY Picture Frame that I thought was really cute. I noticed she still purchased a cheap frame, and I know I can get a nice one from WholeSalePosterFrames.com that’s really nice and of high quality.

I also wasn’t completely sold on her idea for a picture frame. So, I still did some more exploring. My non-crafty self didn’t even know there is a DIY Network online. This website is filled with so many ideas on their site it’s not even funny. I ended up getting lost in checking out these ideas on this site. They cover so many ideas for all occasions and for all parts of your home.

What is a picture frame that you would recommend I use for this treasured picture? If you have a link, please sure it with us.

I'm Crystal. I'm married to Dale, and mother to Johnny.Some might say that my life is perfect because I get to do all the cliché wife things like cooking, cleaning, and decorating - but there's more! I also have many hobbies including needlework (crochet), sewing, and reading. My son's education is important, so we homeschool him together.

  1. I don’t have any suggestions for this. I am not crafty when it comes to these kinds of projects. I love the pic and the story behind it <3

    • Paintings? Are they paintings you’ve done or some you’ve bought? If they are yours I’d love to see your work, if you want to share.

    • I think it’s a very viable option. I love that it fits the theme of the picture. Thank you for sharing your idea with me.
