It works, right? At least for now. It needs a light, that's on the list.
The framed piece is a photograph I took 3-5 years ago. Those beautiful trees in the foreground were bulldozed to make way for an overlook on Warm Springs Mountain in Virginia. It was sad to see them go but the overlook is a beautiful place to stop and consider the beauty of the valley spread out below and the rippling mountains in the distance. I love that place and places like that in the mountains. I call that photograph "Last Stand" because those trees were sacrificed for "progress." The vases are both ones I painted.
The cookbook shown there is my recent Christmas present to myself, it's by Ina Garten. It is the first of... six I think? Yeah, those cookbooks are such a work of art that I wanted to display it as if it was a small framed painting. "Hey, why not?!" (She says that on her show a lot!) That reminds me, I need to get my birthday present to myself ordered, I think I'd like another Ina Garten cookbook! =)
Drop me a comment and let me know what you think!
