I attach a lot of value to memories. And the easiest way to freeze the memories forever is photos.

At my home, major decoration happens with photos. From family portraits to our travel clicks, you’ll find the best of them adorning one or the other nook or accessory at my home. Not only the pictures add beauty but solve another purpose. Thanks to them, Baby H constantly gets to see and know her extended family (grand pa, granny, uncles, aunts & cousins), that lives in a different city.

The photo gallery that I recently added to my home is this ‘Family Time Photo Wall Clock.’ Though it was a tedious job (the clock like placement called for a lots of calculation) to get it done on a big bare wall but the final outcome was worth all the effort. It is one of the favourite spots for Baby H. Every now and then you can spot her standing in front of the photos and remembering her Tatha (GrandPa), Ajji (Granny) & Nani.

With that addition, let’s take a look at some more interesting ways to display your family photos at home…
