Still catching up

 I think this is the last of  the stuff my aunt brought when she came in April. 

 She had this sign she wasn't going to use and I had this picture hanging in the living room that I had been trying to decide what I could put with it so it didn't look so lonely and this seemed like the perfect match. (just for size comparison the picture is 40x29)
I have a couple of the vinyl things in my kitchen and have had no problem with them. This is a big one so I had hubby helping me with it - good thing because it did not want to stick to my wall. I don't know if it is the paint (which is either satin or eggshell - can't remember) or the texture on the wall. I didn't think they were that textured but whatever the reason I had to glue a lot of it up. I spent days with the step ladder sitting there  and when a piece would start to flop down, I would use either a toothpick or q-tip and slip a little glue under it. (which is probably why I didn't move back and show the whole picture) This is the back wall of the house and the way it is built you can see all but the last 'e' from the front door. 

in addition to the other crochet set she brought me (the one I showed in my dining room) there was this one. It was also made by my great-grandmother and is a perfect fit on top of the plant stand that belonged to my grandmother.

closer photo. There really isn't a good place in this house to take pictures in this house - they are either too light or too dark. Anyway - I'm almost caught up - maybe by the end of August I will have something a little more current to show.

Hope you are all having a great weekend!

Very pretty groupings. I have a vinyl thing in my utility room that flops sometimes, I think it is the texture.
