Staircase Display: Captured Memories

 A month ago, my computer stopped working.  I had to bring it to a computer technician to fix what was wrong with it.  My husband suggested that I should just get a new one but I did not want to because all of the pictures I have taken last year was all there.  It was  so odd too because the night before it crashed, I  uploaded  800 plus photos  at Shutterfly to avail their unlimited free prints.  Glad I got it done before my PC decided to  fail me.
It took me a while before I finally arranged all of the photos in an album and put some in the frames.
I decided to decorate our staircase with  the frames I  filled up with new photos.  I always find  some photo frames when I go to the  thrift store.  I guess some people buy the frames thinking of printing some of their  photos but they never got to it so they donate it to  stores like Goodwill.  I always find the unused ones and reserved it for my future project just like this one.
I got some of these unique displays at TJMaxx, they always have  pretty little things for good prices.  Some I got from thrift stores as well.  You don't really have to spend that much when decorating.  It's a matter of looking through deals and sale.  
I love little things with encouraging phrases on it.  It serves as a reminder for us everyday.
I love this one that I found at Goodwill.  They have short phrases.  Some are funny and some are very inspiring.  It would be a great gift for Father's Day.  I  inserted a photo in it.
I told my husband that I am preparing our home with  reminders so that when we get old and can't remember things anymore, we will have things to look at and may help us with our memories.
I bought this one two years ago but never really had a chance to do it right away.  But now, it's on the wall.
A lot of these frames did not cost a lot which I am happy.  
"BE YOU", I am not sure if you can see the  gold writings in this one but it says  "Be YOu".  I thought, it would be a good  display to remind us everyday to live life to the fullest.  
The plain staircase has now some things to see.  Captured memories are the best things to use  when you want to spruce up a wall at home.  
Having the free  unlimited prints from Shutterfly is nice, I just wish the shipping doesn't cost that much lol.  It still  worth it though.  Once in a while, whenever I miss the times when my kids were little, I would open up  some photos albums and look at the great memories we captured.  I am wondering, do you still print the photos you take?  Do you still  put  or arrange them in a photo album.

We have family photos up our stairs, too! I think it's a great part of the home to display all those pictures we take.

It's great that you printed them out before your computer crashed. I haven't printed out photos in a while. I do back them all up because my computer crashed once and I lost everything, including photos. I love the way you've displayed the photos.

I have tons of photos going up our stairs as well. I always love to display photos! I enjoy looking at pictures when I visit other homes too. They're fun to look at.

I have family photos throughout the house as well, but I do want to switch some out for newer ones. My kids are my favorite thing to look at.

I lost a ton of pics a few years ago when my laptop crashed so I am that person that prints out my coveted pics using one of the apps on my phone or at the local supercenter or drugstore when they have a special on prints. It's the fear of losing all those memorable moments that I just don't want to ever experience again. Oh and your staircase is absolutely gorgeous.

I love the tree picture frame, what a really neat looking frame. I have a full wall in our house that is just family pictures. I love it.

I love this so much. I have been thinking about creating a disply on our staircase, but first we plan to paint.

Oh I love this! What a great display to have up the side of your stairs! I think I need to try this myself.

It's such a lovely thing to do, to fill your home with pictures and precious memories. It's not just for when you're old but it's a great way to remind yourself of the lovely moments that you've had with family.

My mother had her stairs totally filled with old pictures. This is something I want to do!

I love the look of printed photos on walls. I have so many photos all around my home. I am like you I print photos of what I capture, though I have never printed 700 at once, I also scrapbook those that I do not hang up too.

Angela Ricardo said...

I totally love and adore this stair case display! I would love to decorate ours like this someday soon.

Marysa said...

We have a similar staircase, and I would love to put up a bunch of family photos. Yours came out great!

Your staircase display is lovely. I see how you have such a loving, happy family. Proudly displaying photographs around the house adds so much warmth and coziness.

Our Home is filled with memories as well. I think it's one of the best ways to remember moments through the years. I love your selection of picture frames, they're all so beautiful!
