What's on My Wall Wednesday!

The first thing on my wall is in the upstairs guestroom . It's three pictures framed by my mother for me. The picture on the left is of my maternal grandparents on their wedding day, then my parent's wedding picture, then my paternal granparent's wedding picture. I really love this and now I think that I'll move it to an area where I will see it more often!
This is hanging on the wall of our Master bedroom. It was painted by my oldest son Nathan when he was 10 yrs. old. He got some kudos for this in eastern Nebraska. This is most likely my favorite wall thing in the house.

About 9 yrs. ago, I was antiquing in southern Minnesota and found this vintage Lavoris pamphlet, I remember it was $1 and I had to have it. I framed it and it hangs on the wall of our main bathroom.


  1. Hi Cindy - I love the three framed pictures. What fantastic sentimental value! But best of all is the painting by your son. How very special.

    Thanks for joining in today's WOYWW.

    Blessings, Barb

  2. You have some great wall treatments. Of course, I love the tri-frame the best. I love family pictures. It mades a house seem like a real home. Your son is guite talented. I used to keep one drawing that was done in art class by my students each year. Sometimes it was very difficult to talk them into letting me have one of the treasures.

    Thank you for sharing.


  3. Wow! Your son was quite the artist at that age. Does he still paint? Love the Lavoris ad. How wonderful to have all of those wedding pictures framed together. laurie

  4. I love the one that your son painted. I am showing one that my son painted too on my blog. Have a good day! Connie

  5. My favorite is the artwork by your son but all of them are so great! You're very lucky to have the family photos so many people do not.

  6. I like the wedding portraits. I have a wonderful one of my parents on their wedding day.

  7. I love the wedding photos idea. That would make a fabulous mothers day gift. Maybe for next year. Children's artwork is always so sweet. Your vintage ad just reminded me that I have one. I need to find it & get it framed. Thanks!

  8. Cindy, I can't believe your son painted that picture. What a great job he did. I hope he still paints!

    I wanted to thank you for visiting my blog and the interest you have shown. Please come back soon!

  9. Hi Cindy~~Oh I love Nathan's red flowers~~doesn't it just make your heart sing when you look at it?
    Thanks so much for sharing your very special wall treasures!

    Take care,


I'm happy to hear anything that you think! Thank you!
