antique photo displays

I love old photographs. Whether they are of my own ancestors or someone else's, I love to look at them and imagine the stories they have to tell. I am always looking for ways to display them. 


I love this idea of hanging them like clothes on a clothesline.

This is a display of mine, where I combined photos with other antique and natural finds.






So lovely when displayed in glass bottles

and jars

Here, the photos are displayed with some of the cameras that may have been used to take them.

and of course, they are always beautiful grouped together on a wall. Like this.....

or this...just hung in a collage with push pins

Have you found any unusual ways to display vintage photos?

  3. Thanks for this great post ... it's so inspirational. I love all types of photographs, from antique to contemporary, and the more unusual in display, the better. I love propping photos up among potted plants, paper weights, and other object d'arts around the house. They're like little surprises.

  5. The glass bottles are really creative! If you want to hang them there is this great photo bird cage at Francesca's online. It's a gold half cage that comes with little wood clothespins. Love it!
