Grandparents Wall

A bit ago I stitched a sampler to honor my husband's(the SBA) grandparents. This was to go along with the wedding pictures we had been given several years ago. While doing more research, the SBA found more pictures of them. One was a full length picture of his grandmother in the same dress. We think the one of his grandfather was not done with the wedding photos,however, I liked the picture of him. The whole arrangement needed balance so we took their marriage certificate and had it framed in the same frame as the sampler. I think the wall looks good and the SBA is very proud and happy to honor his grandparents. He was named after his grandfather, James.

Sorry for the reflections. If we wait till this room is full of sunlight it will probably be July! This is the darkest room in our house because of a porch overhang.

This is the original certificate. We could tell by the ink that was used.

The family gave these to the SBA when his Mother passed away. He is known as the family genealogist.

Here are the two additional pictures that we found.
Thanks so much for taking a look and I love to read your comments! Have a wonderful week-end!


  1. What a wonderful display - I'm a genealogy nut too - love the photos and marriage certificate. And how great to add new heirlooms to the mix with your samplers!

  2. I just love the way you've incorporated the lovely old photos, your gorgeous stitching, and the marriage certificate into your grandparents' wall, Barb--great job!!

  3. The wall is beautiful. All the colors look nice together and your sampler suits the wall perfectly!

  4. What a wonderful way to honor your family!
