Pottery Barn Inspired Wall

I have a lot of "stuff." 

I have been wanting to create a wall of pictures and accessories. 

This picture is of the wall I wanted to work on
and these tables were just pushed here while we were painting.

So yesterday I pulled out a lot of "stuff;" and set out to create one.

I studied the pictures in Pottery Barn for inspiration.

So with a lot of mounting squares here is the wall that I came up with.

Couldn't get a good picture without the ceiling fan blade in my way.

I used my some of my photography. It has been up for two days and it is already the thing everyone who comes in comments on.

There is still one empty frame--bottom right.  I have to find a picture of my daughter Jennifer to go in that one.

I tried to make it with that not so organized look but as I add to it maybe I can give it more "found object" look.  

I like my squirrel but I need something sleek, maybe something glass to put in the box.  Something to contrast textures, give it a little more juxtaposition. 

I am still working on the living room.  I will continue to post pictures as it comes together slowly.

    Hope all is going as well as can be expected with your mom. How is your daughter, did I miss the report on what happened with her hip?

    Now the superficial stuff.....what is the name of the font in your header? Love it! I'm sure this is the font used on a sign at my favorite junk shop. I never was able to find the person who made that sign so I hope you can tell me.
