Hello friends, Winston here.
You know what I realized the other day? There sure are a lot of pictures around my house. There’s even pictures of me! My people sure must love me and all those people in all those pictures. I really like pictures. It’s like a moment, frozen in time, where nothing else matters but that second and everything is perfect. If I could, I’d have pictures of my toys and treats all over my dog house! They make me so happy. I also really like picture frames! All different shapes and sizes and colors, just like dogs! I like it when my people use picture frames in lots of different ways, it makes my house look so cozy. Maybe I could tell you a few of those ways and your house could be as cozy as mine!
Shadow boxes are kind of like a picture frame, but they’re bigger in the middle so you can put more things in there than just a photo. How cool is that?! My people made a shadow box filled with stuff about me, Winston! It has my first collar in it, my first report card from puppy school, and a bunch of pictures of me and my silly antics over the years. I love seeing it because it reminds me of how much my people loves me then and how much they love me now. Shadow boxes are great for capturing long events like watching a puppy grow in to an adult, planning a wedding, and having a baby. You can put all kinds of mementos in there and hang it proudly on the wall. I might make one of all the awesome sticks I’ve discovered.
Picture frames can also be used to preserve memories other than pictures. They even make really big picture frames that have space for a lot of pictures! I think it’s called a collage. Or something like that. If you have artistic kids who are always drawing and creating beautiful little treasures, using a collage frame would be a great way to keep all of it together instead of a drawer or file cabinet. I bet that would make your little artist feel pretty special, too.
Picture frames have all kinds of uses and are really easy to change around. I think it’s important to use them to capture memories because life is so busy and silly sometimes and something as simple as a picture frame holding a photo or a family heirloom can help us remember the best of times and how far we’ve come. Of course at SampleHouse, we have picture frames galore! Take your pick of the litter (not kitty litter, gross!), and display all of your special memories with flair.
