Modern Keepsakes

I thought I’d just finish out this week of family/photo love with a little post about creative ways to preserve keepsakes. Right now, I have 2 boxes, one for each kid, where I toss all of the little meaningful objects from their short lives…their hospital bracelets, their Welcome to the World cards, their sonogram photos. At some point I’m going to need a new solution. Here are a few thoughts…

I’m so crazy about the lovely shadow boxes pictured above. They are just the right amount of delicate, with their soft colors and simple white edging. For the life of me, I can’t figure out where they are from (if you know, leave a comment!), but I think they are pretty DIYable. Image via Pinterest.

Have you ever seen Darcy Miller‘s (from Martha Stewart Weddings) scrapbook shadow boxes? They’re amazing.

I love the idea of this sweet book keepsake box for love letters, gift tags, or photographs. Image via One Sunny Afternoon.

And for the most nostalgic (read: sappy), I can’t get enough of these clean and modern, enamel lockets. I’d love to wear a few together. (Husband, if you’re reading, bookmark this.)
