    What are monkey hooks?

      It's the brand of hook. Some can hold up to 50 lbs. and you don't have to screw or nail them in. They only leave a small hole.

    What did you use to hang the pictures in the window with?

      Hi Cynthia! I used clear adhesive photo corners, like the kind used for scrapbooking.

      GREAT INFO! The window is the easy part, I had no clue what to use to hold the photos on the glass without damage! And did you make B&W copies of the pics or use your originals?? Also, wouldn't COMMAND hooks work for hanging it safely? Thanks, love it!!

    Are the pictures mounted on the outside of the glass or the inside. I want to do this but want to mount the pictures on the backside of the glass but haven't found clear corners that will work that way, can you tell me where you found yours if that is how you mounted yours
