Displaying old family photos or vintage photography adds an element of character and history to a home. One of my friends loves vintage furnishings and photography so much that he purchases black and white family photos from a local flea market. As I looked at his "family portrait" wall, my curiosity kicked in because I was looking at a collection of strangers' personal histories.

Framing family photos in an older, worn frame is a nice accent. However, I can also appreciate another creative expression for displaying the photos by mounting them to the wall with push pins. One of my favorite options for incorporating the photos into the home is exemplified in the first photo. Although, I am still questioning how to get the photo out of the bottle.

What ways have you incorporated old family photos into your home?
