Joining Carole & friends for Three Things on Thursday...
Grasping at straws, I am...
Today I am sharing THREE ROWS OF PICTURES IN A GRID ON A WALL.
As you may know, Kate has worked on & off (currently off) at a used/buy-sell book store for quite a while. Occasionally, a really awesome book would come in but it was bound for the dumpster because it was damaged in some way (and therefore not sale-able)... and, occasionally, such a book would be rescued!
Such was the case with Wooden Houses, which had a broken spine. She's had it for a while and, upon picking it up recently, had a little thought bubble about hanging some of those photos on the wall. We ordered some record album mounting things, Rusty mounted them all for us on foam-core, and we did the deed yesterday in the still-vacant Airbnb*. She did most of the eyeballing, figuring, marking, and pounding; I juggled pencil, level, hammer, and nails.
The photos are so cool! There's so much to look at and examine in each one. And today I saw The Wooden Architecture of Russia, which made me think of my mother (these few days before Mother's Day), so naturally it's on the way to my mailbox. My mom visited Russia on a "school trip" in 1974, while a nursing student & single mother of 5 teens/pre-teens. She would have loved this book!
*The Packers schedule is released this evening and we had more than a few bookings within minutes of the announcement last year... it will be interesting to see what happens tonight. So many events have already been canceled or postponed...
That looks so good Vicki!! Love the pictures and the grouping is just perfect. Here's hoping you get bookings soon!!

I love that grid of photos! I'm not sure that would work in my crooked old house, though!

Completely and totally awesome!

The photo grid is awesome! And I have my fingers crossed for your Packer bookings!

You have a house theme going between these wonderful pictures and your knitting. Both look lovely :)

The 3 rows of pictures are so pretty! Each one individually is pretty and the grouping is gorgeous! You have such an eye for decorating.

That is a brilliant and beautiful way to rescue those books! I will keep my fingers crossed that those bookings stick for you.

How inspirational that wall of pictures is. Both as a reader of your blog and for AirBnB guests. Here's to hoping that autumn brings some relief from COVID-19.

I LOVE those photos AND the grid arrangement! So creative and wonderfully done. I'm hoping your Airbnb guests can see them up-close-and-personal soon. XO

The pictures were worth saving especially when used as decor! Nice job, all of you!

That looks amazing! Can I ask how you mounted the brackets to the wall?
