Placing old family photos around your home is beneficial in more ways then one. First, it can give you a great appreciation for who you are and where you came from. Second, it tells the guests who enter your home a little bit about you. It always becomes a nice conversation piece as well. Another added benefit is that it's fairly inexpensive wall art! Most of us can get our hands on old family photos from another family member. It's very simple to get copies made (the quality doesn't even have to be great since more than likely the original picture's quality wasn't perfect to begin with). Just locate a frame and you've got a masterpiece! Don't worry if you find a frame that you already own and it's the wrong color. Just spray paint it any color you desire!
The photo below that shows various pictures of Grandparents and Great-Grandparents on both my side of the family as well as my husbands. It serves as a reminder that that we came from two people who fell in love and the love continued throughout the generations.
