vine final

My children are always bringing home adorable artwork that they’ve made in school or here at home. I love displaying their work, but sometimes I run out of places to hang their art. Curious George to the rescue with this fun artwork-hanging vine! Silly George is always up for fun, and today he’s hanging on a vine and helping us hold (and display) our prized drawings!
