my sister bought a new house and wanted a neat piece of artwork above her fireplace. she had seen pictures of envelopes blown up and thought about doing that with one of our grandparents' letters. this concept was also featured on my favorite website. so, of course i had to have one for my apartment too.
my sister had a letter and envelope that my granddaddy wrote my granny during the war. so, she had it enlarged and framed. and it turned out great!
here is a picture of my granddaddy during his tenure in the army:
here is my granny. she would often go to photo booths and then send the picture to him.
and here my the envelope enlarged and framed. it's not the best picture...it's at an angle, but you get the gist. it's also pretty big (33''x52'').
and here are my grandparents how i remember them...silver haired, aged, and still in love after a ba-jillion years together:
while i don't have a nice new house like my sister, it's still pretty nice to have such a unique reminder of my grandparents.
