Gallery Wall

I didn't realize that what I was working on could be termed a Gallery Wall exactly but, after seeing a lot of examples on Abbey Goes Design Scouting lately, I guess that that's what I have. And since I've finally finished it after getting the photo on the lower right framed (it is a 1915 photo of Bath which P & I bought on our trip there in 2005), and since it is an official Thing, I thought I'd share it here. It only took me 3 years to get it done.

The other photos, in case you're wondering are:

top row: 2 random prints whose matting I like very much (from Target, purchased when I got my first apartment) and then an antique portrait, in a convex-glass frame, of P's great aunt and grandfather as babies

center: a reproduction engraving of Castel Sant'Angelo in Rome, which I bought at a bookstore when I was there for school in 2003, an antique print of Rome, looking from above the Piazza del Popolo, purchased on the same trip as the one above, and a Blackbird Designs cross-stitch that I did in 2003 at the height of my Blackbird Designs / cross-stitch mania.

bottom: another antique family portrait with convex glass, this one of P's other grandfather, an antique photograph of lumberjacks, including P's great-great grandfather and great-great-great uncle, and then the photo from Bath.
