Keepsakes. Photos. Art. Newspapers. Stored away, they are probably clutter, and that’s a shame. If you have beautiful things and special memories, I want you to enjoy them every day. Today’s organizing project is simple: find your treasures and display them.
Brace yourself; I’m about to talk about sports!
Do you have newspapers like these from important occasions? It sounds bonkers now, but back in 2018, thousands of people gathered in one place to watch a few dozen men play a game…all without masks (except for the catcher)! For a few years, Philadelphia hit it big, and our sports teams were hot, hot, hot. This client kept some newspapers that had unbelievable covers that we thought we might never see! Rolled up in a tube, stuffed under the guest bed, these old, yellowed newspapers were worse than yesterday’s news. They were clutter.
I reached out to the newspapers and purchased reasonably-priced, high-quality photographic copies of the newspapers. These are beautiful, full-color copies, ready for framing.
We chose beautiful mats and frames to commemorate these sporty miracles.
We even incorporated the game ticket artfully into one of the frames.
And then we hung them in a place of pride as a gallery wall to enjoy every day.
I love this display so much. It’s part of a larger sports-themed room that I’ll try to get back to on another day.
Your things might be framed art, or they might be children’s keepsakes. Whatever you keep in your life, display it. Otherwise, why are you keeping it? It’ll make you happier on display, and you’ll have less to organize.
Are you inspired to do something creative with your keepsakes and turn them from clutter into eye-catchers?
