I have not fallen off the face of the earth....just haven't had much time to blog lately. I have actually had a bit to write about, it was just the ACT of writing that I was having a hard time with.
Since it is the Holidays, I thought I would show you all my Mantel. Yesterday, I picked up some auction finds, and I had gotten a group of 5 pieces of artwork.
I was more into the frames than the artwork....because they were so gorgeous. But there was a little surprise in one of them. The painting (it is actually a reproduction of a Cezanne) was UNDER another print....which is probably more valuable than the reproduction. 2 pieces of artwork for the price of 1!
I really like the original print, and think it would be really sweet in a little girl's room...but the colors of the Cezanne, just so happen to work in my living room right now. And I was getting REALLY tired of the grouping of mirrors that I had. It gave me just the nudge and what I needed to get my Holiday Mantel DONE! Funny how that works. I need something "new" to get my bottom in gear. Can't leave well enough alone! Now, I just have to find those silly stockings.
I am off to get ready for the day. Have a good one. Tis the Season!
