A Little Family History

When I was home shopping in my parents attic a few weeks ago, I also came across all these old family photos. I loved looking though them, its so interesting to see what it was like and how people lived, you know, way back when. I found these awesome two pictures of both my Grandfathers, so I made copies for myself.
I didn't know what to do with them, I just kinda wanted to keep them, so in a drawer they lived till I had a good place for them. As I was rearranging my bookcases I decided it was time to get them out and give them a special place on the shelves. With some frames I already had they now have a new home. Since I already had a wall with both Grandmothers included, it was only fitting to include both Grandfathers as well.

I'm working on finding some more old family photos as well as getting some from the BF's side of the family. I want to make a wall just like Erin from Elements of Style did here- I love this, its so beautiful!!

It's so great to have a sense of history & family in rooms. This is one of my things I've been meaning to do!
