    Default Rosette display GDG

    How do you display your rosettes? Plaques and trophies are easier--we either hang them on the wall or set them on the hearth or put them in the case. Pictures of your display would be great.

    Mine have made the migration from being displayed on the wall, desk top, etc to boxed up in the attic to this past summer being tossed out. My dogs are my awards I cherish the most.

    Um, I wish I had that problem.
    Since my paltry few from field trials are all green, I'm thinking about putting them in a salad bowl.

    Ann, I had a carpenter make up a 6" wide oak shelf with a front bar(1" x 1/4") that attaches to the wall that allows you to clip the ribbons to. Then you can set trophys ,placques,pictures of dogs on the shelf above the ribbon if you want that correspond to the ribbons. Ours is in our home office and is about a foot from the ceiling going around it.

    I have a bulletin board in my office at home where I keep all my ribbons each year. At the beginning of the trial season each spring I put last years ribbons in a rubbermaid box and start fresh again for the new year.

    That may explain why I can get away with hanging them with the tiny T pins that I use for taxidermy around the perimeter of my family room in successively lower rows.

    My husband put this together for me last Christmas. He had it made at Hobby Lobby. It is several inches deep and has a clear front. It displays Skeeter's Agility Championship rosette, a picture collage, her Purina and GOG medals and Championship title certificate.

    I suggest if you do something like this, pick out the "special" rosettes for framing. Other things could be framed to make it meaningful to you, like the number you wore, a special whistle or something along those lines...

    I think he did a great job!
