What an exquisite shot!! You should have a good print made, fine a fabulous old wood frame (preferably with a thin gold filet) and hang it!!

Karen said...

That is a beautiful shot. Have a great Sunday.

A timeless still life, how lovely!

I think your lovely vellum books are what those poor, torn PB book bundles want to be when they grow up. You can't fake the age and grace that your books have.

I just noticed that you updated the headboard post with more progress and the almost-finished 'After' shot. Very nicely done!!! I know you must be totally thrilled with the result ... and the speed at which it was achieved. Now I'm motivated to cross something of MY ever-expanding To Do list ... hmmmm .... what should I work on??

Stay warm,
Connie

And so exciting about the press - love the name of their magazine and so appropriate to include you and your exquisite talent.

ohh, I am so excited! I just found your blog, while searching for "stone wall" ideas. Love your house!! It has so many perfect things and I love your decorating style! We are in the midst of a kitchen reno, almost there, cupboards should arrive today. Of course it is all the fun detail stuff that is to come that is so exciting when finishing a project. Have a happy day!
