Decorative Accessories For Families

It's the personal items that transform a house into a home and I really like to display the kids artwork and photos in each room. It brings back memories of good times we have shared as a family and also shows how quickly they are growing up into bright and beautiful little people!

These are both great ways to display pictures...

Photo Height Chart

This great value item from Presents For Men not only measures how tall (or small) your child is but it stores up to 10 6"x4" photos inside too. A quirky yet useful gift idea. 
You can share an individual child's development and have one situated in each bedroom or simply use it for all children within the household and share pictures of everyone!
The height chart comes with handy hanging holes, measurements in both inches and centimetres and is suitable from birth to 155cm.

Minxy, at age 9, is 134cm which goes to show just how long the item will be used. It was nice to add her photos into the slots so we could see just how much she has changed since being born. It left me feeling quite nostalgic (and broody!). 

A lovely keepsake and ideal for a new parent to put up in their nursery.

Children's Art File and Frame

The fridge and kitchen walls soon run out of space when your little ones get creative with pens and paint so the double display frame from The Handpicked Collection is a great alternative. You can hang it on the wall like an ordinary frame but the great thing is that the top/side is open so you can slide artwork in with ease. 

If the kids make another masterpiece you can slot it in front or remove the previous picture in a matter of seconds. It can be used as both a frame and file to store work away. There is no glass panel so you can even add 3D images your child makes without any restrictions!

Being double A4 in size makes it great for those with two children like myself and this is a far more attractive way to show off what your children have been doing at home and school. You can hang it either vertically or horizontally and it's great for displaying certificates you are proud of too.
