Re-doing the Walls

In January, The Edward Gorey House returned the eight pieces of original art (and books) which I had lent for their 2010 exhibition. Once the "children" had been safely shipped back and unpacked, it was time to rehang the pieces on the walls.

Finding room for these framed pieces proved to be a challenge since other framed pieces had taken their place! Jostling for attention, the returned art caused a chain reaction which started in our guest bedroom (see the photos), and quickly spread chaos throughout the three floors of our home.

Practically every room was affected and adjusted to accommodate not only the returning pieces, but also some framed works which had been patiently waiting to be hung on the walls.

After several days and lots of tea, the dust has settled and all the pieces have places of their own...until the next trip back from the picture framer!
