I have a back hall that is very hard to photograph. It has no outside light coming in and a flash reflects off of the glass on the pictures, so bear with me, OK? Also, the wall is a tan color more like the following photo than the top one,
This started the whole wall of collections. This is a photo of my folks' home - 20 North Ora. I had it framed and wanted something to go around it and started collecting these Mother plaques.
These started my collection because they were my Mother's. They actually are hung straight, I had to take this photo from below and it looks like the one on the right is crooked.
This is the only Father plaque I have ever found. There seems to be lots of the Mothers but very few of the Fathers.
This was another unusual one I found with a poem for Mother and Dad.
I added various items to the wall to fill in such as the Memories sign.
I found this at Canton at Trade Days. The doll is made up of a salve tin called Mrs. Clark's, the arms are an old drawer pull turned upside down, the head is a glass knob and the legs are cut from a vintage yardstick. Creative, isn't it?
So, this is my wall of collectible plaques. I have several more but these go from under the top shelf of my McCoy to the baseboards. Sometime I shift them around.
I do love them tho!
