    Hi, would you be able to refer me to the company that did the leather desk-top or give me some guidance on type and grade of leather? Gorgeous outcome!

    Hi there, Was there a particular kind of look you were after? You may have some luck looking at what is available on the or or websites. Also, if you are after a vintage piece, can be a great resource.

    Hope that helps!

          Back things up. Sentimental photographs, Foley says, are by far the items she sees the most people mourning in the aftermath of a disaster. If you have a large collection of paper (not digital) photos, take some time when there’s no safety threat to digitize them. Spend a weekend using a home scanner or working with a photo shop to copy each photo or scrapbook page and then back up those files on multiple thumb drives, external hard drives or cloud storage systems. The same goes for other important documents, such as family recipes, old letters or school papers. (Gina had just completed her doctorate at the time of the fire and lost her dissertation since it wasn’t backed up.)How to Organize Your Digital Photos

          Morgan Province added this to How to Display Lots of Photos Without a Perfect Gallery WallNov 16, 2017

          Another option is your computer. You probably already store your digital photos there. If not, upload and save your favorites to the computer. Then go to the screen saver settings and select the photos you want to appear on the screen when the computer is idle.Read more about displaying your digital photos

          Brenna Malmberg added this to Great Home Project: How to Display Your Digital PhotosDec 28, 2016

          Digital Photo Display OptionsComputer or phone: If you have a computer, you most likely are already using it to store and organize your digital photos. Take this electronic device one step further and turn it into a digital display. You can do this by setting your desktop image to one of your personal photos. Some computers even allow users to set the desktop picture to change after a set time. You can also use your images as the screen saver. Again, different computers will offer different options. This desktop computer displays images as snapshots and creates a never-ending rotation on the screen.A phone can also display your personal images. In the display settings, you can add a personal photo to the background of your smartphone or the lock screen. Now, not only are you taking photos with your phone, you are also enjoying them every time you pick it up.
