Updating a Family Keepsake Display


Happy Monday, Friends! I hope you're enjoying a lovely summer! Today I'm sharing an update of a favorite family keepsake display...

It doesn't seem like it has been almost five years since I first shared this project after finding this divided galvanized tray 50% off at Hobby Lobby.

Here's a view of the completed memory display in 2014.

Since then, there have been two weddings in the family and I've gained a a new son and a new daughter, so I wanted to update the photos to reflect the new extensions of our family. Above Youngest Daughter's wedding photo are her baby shoes. I added Scrabble tile names for each family member plus a letter block for the last name of each family.

Here's a view of the entire display. You can see I kept some of the original keepsakes and photographs while updating others.

Dear Firstborn's graduation invitation is nestled above Favorite Son and Darling DIL's wedding photo.

On the opposite side a childhood photo of me with my uncles is above a recent snap with Dear Firstborn. The lace is an heirloom baptismal cap.
