I bet you're wondering about my art installations! I managed to put up the artwork in the living and dining rooms at least. I didn't chicken out. I put holes in the plaster.
Here is the piece we got on a trip to Cuba in 2005. And my mantel, looking decidedly un-fall-ish. But I'll get to that sometime soon.
I also re-arranged the room. If you recall from this post, the couch used to be where the series of three paintings is. I think I like it better this way for now. We've been enjoying our wood -burning fireplace a whole lot this fall and this set up allows better views of the fireplace. In the past, we've only had gas fireplaces. I always thought I wouldn't like the wood burning type since they are messier and smokier but I really love it.
I still think the room needs more personality but I'm starting to really feel at home in here. Maybe it's the fire. Alice the kitty sure is enjoying it too.
I have so many things to share with you this week. I'd love some feedback on the new living room!
