{fondest memories}


Two beautiful cities {Paris, NYC} in less than three weeks, with hundreds of photos and little time to compile scrapbooks or albums . . . love the idea of creating shadow boxes for storing and displaying my fondest memories . . .

  • this one is so cute—if i made shadow boxes, i have so many little souvenirs like this, i feel like every inch of my walls would be filled! but maybe that would be nice…

  • perfect idea!

  • Lovely and creative idea to display your pictures and souvenirs. I definitly need to think about it for my Australian memories ! Thank you.

  • Beautiful idea, fantastic way to highlight beautiful details…

  • Great idea! If only I had that extra moment.

  • Ohhh I love this idea too. What a great shadow box that is. It makes me want to go out and buy one right now and fill it with all sorts of wonderful things!

  • I’ve done some digital shadow boxes and some travel books, too. I hope that you will post some of your pictures. I am sure they’re wonderful.

  • What a good idea. I, of course, will never get up the energy to follow through on even getting them into an album.

    My very good friend, the architect, makes the most incredible travel books. To call them albums doesn’t do them justice. Everything from the background papers to the typography is considered. They are a joy to read.

  • Hope everyone had a great weekend — will definitely post trip photos at first chance, and maybe after some summer sun and a strawberry sundae :)

  • Nothing like good memories and momentos!
    I so love your header… I would like to take all the items and go on a holiday!

  • That is really cute!

  • Magnifico blog

  • I really do love the thought of using our sentimental objects and using them as art!! Lovely!

  • How beautiful (:

  • You’re right, this is a fab idea — although I’m probably too lazy to do something even that simple.

  • I have an artist friend who creates vignettes in shadow boxes like this, but hers are more abstract. I love the idea of using them to display items from a trip. Fun! -Julia

  • Love that shadow box! You’ll have to share some of your photos!! Lynn

  • That Martha! She always has perfect ideas :) Actually, I would love to copy this idea for myself.

  • i love this media as well — a great way to hang just about anything.

  • I’m sure you took some great photos. The shadow box is a nice idea.
    I’ve just posted an image from my Hamptons weekend that you might enjoy. I relate to having little time for the photos!

  • Pretty photo! I hope we can see some of your pictures!
