These short weeks always end up feeling longer, don’t they? It probably has to do with raised expectations….or something like that. Anyway, we’ve been enjoying a lot of movies these days. How about you?

With less than a month until spring officially arrives, today’s a great time to take a look at some fun new fashion and trends.

Starting with this gorgeous snake print belt above, which I just ordered! Based on how much I love and wear my leopard print belt – I figured this chic belt is the easiest way to update a pair of jeans and a basic top this spring!

Framing Special Items and Mementos

Framing special items and mementos is a topic close to my heart!


Cleaning out a coat closet over the weekend, I came across a box of old mismatched gloves and mittens. This reminded me of a post I did back in 2013 about framing personal mementos. You can see this post, along with the awful photos I took here.
I never got around to framing those mittens, but I thought I’d put together a new post showing all the items I did manage to have framed. Especially since these have all now been professionally photographed.
I’ve listed the special mementos and items I’ve framed below.
  • Outgrown baby bathing suits (seen above)
  • vintage scarves (below)
  • the dress my grandmother made my mother (the very one she wore in her passport photo when she immigrated to America from occupied Germany) (below)
  • and my husband’s varsity high school letter.(below)
I also have all three of my kids birth announcements in special frames hanging in my bedroom. These were a gift from a close friend.
I love the idea of framing all sorts of mementos…
  • wedding invitations
  • milestone birthday invites
  • cards
  • love letters
  • concert tickets
  • playbills
  • vintage records
  • children’s art (I have these framed all over our house)

I even just use plain old frames for photographs for smaller items. On my desk I have two little pieces of art from when my kids were very little.

Included in this post are some great sources for frames to display your own special items, scroll through to the bottom to find them.
What memorable items have you framed?
