Freezing Time And Putting It On Display

I cleaned out Leyna’s closet last week in an effort to figure out what I do and don’t have for the next baby. As I pulled out little storage boxes and bags overflowing with tiny onesies, I began finding artifacts that lead me through wormholes, to little glimpses of what it was like to have a newborn baby Kendall or Leyna. It’s strange how a tiny t-shirt with snaps in the crotch can do that.

One of my favorite onesies from Kendall’s infancy had a tear where the snaps should go. I was sad I couldn’t hold onto it for the next baby, and I couldn’t bring myself to throw it in the trash.


So I cut out the front, and I framed it.


And then I got my inspiration for this month’s Decor & Cool Spaces post on the Red Barn Blog. Head on over there to check it out.

  1. Ahhhh I love that you framed it!! I have a box of clothes I just *cannot* get rid of and I’m done having kids and I know it’s ridiculous to save them (I’m not interested in baby clothes from when I was a baby, it’s hard to imagine my kids will want theirs). Sometimes I take pictures of my kids in certain outfits just so I can give them away without guilt and still have a way to remember that cute outfit. Love this, thank you!
