When I pulled out our holiday decorations last year I knew it was time to find a new way to display cards from our friends and family. Our old card holder offered only a glimpse of one or two cards at a time and I was forever rotating which cards were at the front. I went in search of something that would let me see almost all of our cards at a glance, a piece that would add to the brightness and cheer of our other holiday décor.
The holidays are over and $50 isn’t pocket change, you say? I agree, on both counts, but this is one decoration I didn’t take down. I can use it all year! That’s what makes this product good stuff…take a look:
This is perfect for artwork the kids bring home!
It is hand made by a husband and wife team that own and operate their business right here in America! In addition to being beautifully detailed, the design is extremely functional. I can push or pull those little curls to secure paper items of different sizes. There are only three reviews of this product on Amazon (it’s really a hidden gem) and I have to believe the one person that reported problems with cards falling must not have read the instructions to know that they can manipulate the holder to grasp items tightly.
There are four people in my immediate family and we all have February birthdays. I have a big, loving extended family and we’re lucky to know many dear friends so when the flood of birthday and Valentine’s cards hit our mailbox this month, I took down the artwork to make room and now we have a wonderful display of all the good wishes sent our way!
When the cards come down I plan to display some of my favorite photos of our family, maybe with a black and white theme and a few bright color photos to make the wall pop. This item would be great near a family calendar (it can be mounted horizontally, too!) to hold invitations and important papers. It was just perfect for the narrow wall space we had yet to fill in a high traffic area of our home. Wire Home Décor actually has a wide range of really neat products that I found clicking around their website. It is definitely worth checking out!
