Not only did I put more rugs on the walls but found a better place for heirlooms from my wonderful Step-father Edward C. Patterson (Pat). Here is an after photo of memories of Pat's military history during his time at Camp David. Those memories include gifts from President Eisenhower and The Kennedy's for Christmas and documents.
A before photo of the wall which looks totally naked in comparison.
OH, if you were waiting for my version of connecting the 'seasonal mats' from the previous post, don't hold your breath. I've decided not to pursue that project for a couple reasons but mostly because the blocks have different background colors and cannot think of a good framing color which wouldn't either get lost because of value or wouldn't be an attractive match. However, it was a wonderful thought-provoking question by Gail.
