This is the first time I've stood a picture in front of the mirror and I rather like it. This past summer, our local PBS station featured an online art auction as a fundraiser, and I was able to bid from our home in Wisconsin. Fortunately, I was the winner of this lovely watercolor by Jean Kreamer, an artist in Lafayette, La. It caught my eye because it reminded me of my two sons, both of whom were very tow-headed when they were small. It's titled 'The First Day of School' and I just fell in love with it!
The lanterns were leftover from Christmas (Hobby Lobby) and provide a nice balance, as do the (real!) ivies on either side.
The yellow vase on the left was a Tuesday Morning find (it matches chargers from Horchow) with a honeycomb and bee pattern. The plate, a Limoges T&V LaCloche from a set found on eBay on the right, perfectly picks up the colors in the painting (how lucky was that?).
We will enjoy this setting all spring, until it's time to head north! Thank you for visiting!
