Unique Photo Christmas Ornaments

I love antique photos...I love how they tell a story in each and every formal portrait, and I wonder who the people were and what their lives were about.

Each year I decorate a tree for my gallery that is chock full of photography theme ornaments and years ago I took a handful of antique photos and attached hooks to the backs. Now each time I decorate my tree I pause to think of these long ago people and what their lives might have been like during the holidays.

How might you do this with your own family photos? How about "antiquing" them in photoshop, mounting to board and hanging on your own tree? a simple project to do with the kids that helps them think about where they came from through the medium of photography.

Happy Holidays!
