hearth and home
Across from the windows on one side of the dining area of our kitchen is this (false) fireplace. We found it trashed and brought it home where my husband repaired and painted it. EVERYTHING you see in this photo was purchased at thrift stores or garage sales except the "PEACE" sign hanging on the mirror. It was an after-Christmas clearance item.
My clothes, too, were all thrift store purchases...
This picture was in the background when I posed in our library/music room. It's large and in an attractive frame. I found it at an auction (it's not a painting - just a copy). If anyone knows its title or the painter of the original, I'd like to know!
At the time I bought it, I was giving piano lessons to two sisters. The girls in the painting reminded me of them SO much! Don't you like how the light of the candle seems to LIVE on the painting?
