Decorating with gameboards

I love collecting quirky vintage items and displaying them in my house (this includes a cash register in the kitchen, and birdcages hanging from my ceiling). My latest obsession is old game boards. I was first drawn to vintage games for their playing cards and pieces that I like to incorporate in my jewellery and paper art. I always loved the boards and decided that they are too cool to just sit folded away in my studio so I've put them up on the wall. They're hanging over the daybed in the office where the girls like to sit and read while i try to get computer stuff done. I'm loving it! They look great with my retro wall paper cut outs and floral print. Now.....where to put the rest of them!

P.S I really REALLY suck at taking photos.
