House of cards

Larry and I spent about eight hours today working on our foyer wall.  We put 857 of our sports cards on it and it turned out great!!  Larry has thousands of cards, most of them are autographed, but he picked out ones that meant something to him, Atlanta teams, the Indianapolis Colts and pretty much anybody Georgia- or Indiana-related.  There's even a Jeff Gordon card up there somewhere.  I think it looks amazing.  I love it.

It was indeed a labor of love.  Except for having some soup for lunch, a quick trip to Target for some more double-sided tape and having supper, we worked on this wall all afternoon and most of the night!

Speaking of the vegetable soup we had for lunch, we also had some of our Sunday On Monday Cake.  Triple chocolate fudge with fudge icing.  It's so rich I told Larry we were going to get it to pay our bills next month.  :)


  1. Wow, Ginger! That looks great! I did something similar as a teen--taping little things that interested me to the walls until I had them nearly covered. How far my minimalism has come. ;-)

  2. How did you hang them? My husband wants to do the same thing with his half-bathroom. I'm trying to convince him to just use the cards for a border. We are thinking of laminating the cards first.

    1. We put the cards in plastic sleeves first then applied them to the wall with double-sided tape. Doesn't hurt the cards and it doesn't hurt the wall!
