Leigh’s Frivolous Friday: How Digital Have You Gone with Décor?

My husband and I take turns reading nightly to my son.  This sounds pretty harsh, but we take turns because when we do then we don’t feel as if we get the “short straw” every night. Truthfully, as cute as he may look in photos, he’s really a pain in the rump to put to bed.  He draws out bedtime, continually finding another excuse to pop out of bed before his kiss goodnight.

One night as I was standing by his bed waiting, and feeling exasperated, as he did some of his nighttime rituals, I took a long hard look at his dresser and saw this.

My son's room

Uh-Oh! He’s almost seven, and the two photos he has framed in his room are from his baby nursery.

This frame was used in his nursery

I should be embarrassed.  He certainly doesn’t look like that anymore, although he still wears shades.

I need to get busy and start thinking about updating his frames.

I have thought about doing some type of wall collage with photos.  It’s easy to find inspiration on Pinterest.


Of course, we now live in a digital age. 

I honestly cannot remember the last time that I got photos printed.  They sit on my computer.  And then when I do order them, they sit there in a package, and I usually forget where I placed them.

I guess that pretty much sums up why I write about travel rather than home décor.

Perhaps I could get a digital frame for the dresser to showcase different photos through time.

I don’t own one, but I can see that they would be useful in this digital world.

So, I pose this question to you as I ponder what to do in my son’s room.  Have you gone digital with any of your frames yet? Or are you sticking with picture-frame tradition?
