|Our little wall of fame!|
I decided that I wanted to display more than just photos on this wall, to add more visual interest. So I've added a few of my favourite things!

Photo in colour: Hubby's grandparents, Gogo and Poppy
The glass 'frames' used above are actually small glass serving dishes from Ikea. I merely glued the photographs to the back of the dishes using acid-free, clear drying glue around the edges. I was very pleased with the result, as you can't see a trace of glue through the plate! The delicate flower in the little frame was a thrifting find.
This gorgeous mirrored frame was a gift from a friend. I adapted it slightly to fit in with my chosen colours, by opening it up at the back, inserting some ribbon, and re-gluing it shut. Tied into a bow it looks very girly. Just the way I like it!
I added a hand sewn set of wings for interest to the wall. I love using fabric, in any shape or form I can, because it softens the look and adds a cosy touch.

The mini garland has found a permanent home. For now at least...
I painted the two small wooden frames, distressed them, and then joined them using fabric ribbon stapled to the back. Again, a little fabric love!
A few finishing touches...hand sewn cupcake, strawberry, handmade boat and Tilda angel.
And finally...the birds...Hopefully a little friendlier than Hitchcock's variety!
So, our photo wall is coming together. I'm sure to share a little more with you over the coming weeks as I add to it. Hope you've enjoyed taking a peek! I would love to hear what you do with your beloved snaps! Do leave a comment below.
