Displaying family photographs

 Do you frame family photos and hang them on the walls or display them on a shelf or mantle?

I have a corner desk with shelves above it my husband made me in the living room. I have framed 8x10 and 5x7 photos of our children on those shelves.

I don't have a large display, not because I don't like it, I just haven't taken the time to do a nice formal display.

This is a very pretty example I think...

Yes, we have a wall, we call "The famly wall". At the very top there is a framed print that says "All because two people fell in love". Below that is our handfasting cord in a shadow box. Then pics all over the wall of everyone. But my parents wedding pic is on my dresser.

 Yes the wall downstairs is filled with various family pics on one side and the other side has the photo collages we made for each of the boys when they graduated high school.

We have a wall we call our Rogue's Gallery osn which hangs family pictures and I do have pictures of my grandkids here and there on shelves, as well as a picture of all of them together which stands on the mantle.

We have pics of the kids and family pics on our wall, nothing formal, but I have been thinking of a different way to display them. I have pics on my desk and wall at work also. Just love having my family close.

My pictures are displayed down the central hallway.

I love the family tree idea. Right now I do not have any of my family pictures up because I want to repaint my walls after we get back from Vacation so I have them taken down. But when they're up its in the hallway leading back to the bedrooms.

And I have several pictures of family on my dresser.

I take a lot of family photos, especially when we travel, and display them in frames around our home, mainly on shelves and some accent furniture pieces.  They always make me happy to look at.  I also put a few on the fridge with magnets.

 That wall is so cool!   I have a big entertainment center that holds about a dozen pictures of family, unless it's Christmas and then I put my village up there.  I also have a large frame that has 10 spaces for pictures and I have my parents, grandparents and great grandparents pictures.

 When I was in my 30's I framed pictures of my grandparents, parents and greatparents when they were in their late 20's early 30's.  I have them in a box and I plan on hanging them on a wall in the study.   I love the tree idea - not sure I am that creative.
