I'm slowly making progress on the frame wall. Now that Mr. Owl has been ordered, I'm just waiting for him to be shipped and I need to make a quick trip to Ikea for some more frames. I also got suckered into Etsy for more fun prints and discovered this unique one.

First of all, I love maps. I could spend hours on Google Earth
The other night I spent about 30 minute framing some wedding photos to add to the wall. I feel that there's a very thin line of having and enjoying photos of you and your significant other in your home and building a shrine of yourselves. Because of that, I chose only three wedding photos to hang (as I already have two others on our bookcases and have a large one that's getting professionally framed) and even at that, I think its overkill. But then again, we paid a lot of money for those babies. I just might have to switch out a few if it looks like our apartment is looking a bit narcissistic after the project is complete. I don't know. I'm torn. You decide...what's your take on wedding/couple photos in the home. How much is too much?
Enough chatter, let's see the photos already!
|My Hallelujah/ I'm married/it's over/ I'm going to Bora Bora photo.|
|We call this "The Fairytale Shot".|
All the frames/photos were looking pretty girly at this point, but I couldn't help throwing in this French script writing paper. My handwriting would never live up.
I totally stole this idea from Pinterest and printed out the dates on which we met, were engaged, and married. Cheap, easy and cute.
All together now (minus the few I haven't framed)...
The empty frame in the middle is for Mr. Owl. I like the look of this arrangement, but I do have a long ways to go, as I need to fill up this wall. The diplomas and VA Tech print are going down (and saved until we have an office one day).
This is definitely a long term project, but I think I might hang what I have and just add to it from there. That's the beauty in asymmetrical frame hanging.
Do you have a limit on how many couple/wedding photos you have displayed?
