Picture This!

Picture this: 

You. Sending an email. Typing an address. 

This one, for example:

Now, paste in a picture. Any picture. One from your phone. Or desktop. A favorite. Or not. Now send. Now wait. One minute. Two. Maybe three. Four or five at most.......

and then it happens.....

OMG, you gotta see this! 

Go ahead! Try it! I'll wait!.....

So, what do you think?

Me? I was amazed! Pictures, you see, are all I really want as gifts. Even those I give myself. My "grandma closets" bulge with tablecloths and Tupperware and trinkets. But hand me photos of those I love and you envelop me with the best of all I'll ever need.

But wait! I want convenience, too. "One stop shopping," if you will. Show me my pictures before I buy, prettied up in frames. A choice of frames. And sizes. All while here, at home. Not standing in line with a clutter of coupons while my ice cream melts in the car. Let me wander about here, in fuzzy slippers, measuring, of wine in hand, a cat or two upon my lap..... 

And when I click to buy, I want my goodies fast! Hmmm. How about 72 hours fast? Can you do that? Really? YOU CAN?

And they did!

Ava is part two of our twin sissy duet. I chose "Magneto FlipFrames" for the girls. Heavyweight card mounted photos will easily "flip" to new shots "if" grandma ever finds cuter faces!

When daddy opens this one on Father's Day, he'll have not only a "Moderna Metal" portrait of himself and Brielle, but a lasting memory of the evening he escorted his little princess to the Father-Daughter Valentine dance! 

Since he'll be adding a fifth family member by the time Father's Day rolls around, we'll give this daddy his "Aurora Glass" portrait early. Perfect for his desk at work - in celebration of his new promotion!

There are other frame styles, too! Ones you'll enjoy mixing and matching with photos currently held hostage within the gloomy confines of your phone! I liked seeing my own fly free for the first time. You will too!

  1. There is something so special about quality photos. When I was moving recently, I found a photo of my sister from when she was three years old and which I, as a college freshman, had kept on my dorm room desk to remind me of a home I sorely missed. A decade later, I couldn't bear to throw it away. I gave it to my mother.

  2. I love photos of my family and also my travels so will definitely be checking this out. beautiful memories.

  3. Great choices and you like me (we grandmothers) love pics of our babies :) Precious family you have there :) Thank you Joyce for sharing this post at Wednesday AIM Link Party at Grammy’s Grid. I shared it on social media. Hope you get lots of traffic!

  4. Beautiful family J.
    I also treasure my baby grandson's photos and I'm making an album with the nicest photos.

  5. I found your blog at Wednesday AIM Link Party. What a great resource your site is! I totally agree, beautifully framed photos are the best of all. Thank you for sharing this!

  6. They have really nice and creative frames.
    Thanks for the honest review. :)

  7. I did check them out and this would make for great gifts! Thanks for the info - had never heard of them and my email did come back in like 2 minutes and it was cool!

  8. These are adorable. I'll have to check this out. I have hundred of pictures that I need to do something with, lol. Thanks for sharing.

  9. Both of my son's grandmothers tell me I can't go wrong giving them photos of my son or things he makes. Makes shopping easier for me.

    I am going to check out Photo&Go because Easter and Mother's Day are fast approaching.

  10. You almost don't need picture frames for all those cute grands you have. Well, almost, because the frames you picked out certainly do add something. It sounds like a wonderful, convenient option to showcase gorgeous family photos.

  11. Always another clever way to make grandmas happy - what fun to plan and see the project before you buy.
