Photo Gallery

I’ve had a lot of time to read over the last few days. One little gem that caught my eye was this photo display that appeared in the Kansas City Star on Friday. Barbara Cosgrove (you remember Barbara, she makes wonderful lamps) developed a system to display her family photos without having to mess with volumes of frames. She mounts them to a heavier stock, drills a hole in the top, and hangs them in the hall of her home. Apparently, they are a great hit with friends and neighbors; they flutter as you walk by.

  1. This is such a fun way to show photos. Kind of interactive. I’d also want copies kept elsewhere.
    But this is charming!

  2. What a great idea for a hallway! With digital photography, you could change them out to reflect seasons or holidays or a specific theme.

  3. Patricia,

    Look for her whole house in the August issue of Kansas City Spaces. It is just as creative and fabulous as this display idea!

  4. Jennifer – Much better today – I don’t know if it’s the medicine or the fabulous weather, but things are looking up. Thanks for your kind thoughts.

  5. Saw something similar to this just today. The photos were mounted onto black foam board using clear photo corners with a bit of a black border showing. Then the hole was drilled and hung on the hook.

    Also darling.

    This way the drilling is only going on once in set-up and the photos are left in their original condition.
