This week the photo theme set by Postcard from Gibraltar is Wall Art.
I have rather a lot of pictures on my walls, both embroideries I’ve stitched over the years, photographs or pictures I’ve bought or been given. As I was rapidly running out of wall space I started doing what I now realise is called gallery walls. I try to be very precise when I’m working out where the hook will go as I like everything to be lined up with something else somewhere! These are our family photos…
Last year we redecorated the whole house, so it gave me chance to reorganise our pictures. This is our hall where I’ve put a lot of my embroideries;
Going up the stairs I used to have a big display of the children’s paintings, going back to primary school. Now they are in their twenties they really didn’t want a preschool painting on display! So, I could have a change of pictures…it was a bit tricky doing this wall as it’s over the stairs and quite a big drop. I managed to hit a few hooks in on the left by propping the steps closed against the wall, but the ones in the middle needed another solution. Don’t tell my OH but I found if I propped the steps against the wall and then stood a stool with one pair of legs on the stairs and another on the steps, I could just about reach if I stood on tiptoe!!!
