I am constantly looking for ways to surround myself with my family heirlooms. And since I am not the only person living in my house(and have watched one too many episodes of hoarders), I have to make sure that any new treasure is somewhat stylish in addition to being sentimental.
When I received a set of letters that my great-great-grandfather to his family back in Scotland after immigrating to California, I couldn't bear to keep them on the shelf! So I ran down to my nearest copy shop, had them color-copied and then framed and hung my favorite page.
It has a neutral simplicity and I love that I have a piece of my Grandfather nearby. Best part - it didn't take all that much creativity.... and you can tell by my photography skills that I don't have much of that!
