Happy Monday!!! We had a great week-end despite getting caught in a downpour on our Sunday bicycle ride. We were still eight miles from home when the thunder and lightening started. I find that I can always pedal faster when under stress.
I took some time this week-end to makes some much-needed tweaks in the sunroom.
I wrote last year about the glass ceiling (here) we have in the sunroom. Well, although I love it, the art we hang in there takes a beating. I use the word art loosely, because we really don’t put a lot of effort into it.
The Cycles Gladiator poster that I hung last year had almost faded into oblivion.
Ditto for this sweet little magazine cover from the 1920’s that I bought at Scott’s in Atlanta a few years ago. No worries, though.
Jordan’s friend Amanda (you loved her kitchen here and her dining room here) gave Jordan a book of botanicals after she (Amanda) had selected some to use in her foyer. Jordan then used some in her dining room, and then she passed it on to me. Are you still with me????
This is the first one I picked. Even though it looks orangish, the flower is red. And even though it looks navy, the mat is black. And even though it looks like a horrible photo, I’m going to blame it on the glare.
This is the second one I framed. They are a good pair. And by the way, the mat was thicker at the bottom than at the top. That’s probably why it was in the discount bin at Michael’s. So, I just grabbed a piece of ribbon from my stash and attached it to the bottom. (I’m noticing now that the ribbon is slightly uneven. Darn.)
This little lady is sitting in the corner of the sunroom, and the ribbon on the new art matches the bow she has been wearing. Tres chic!!!
This is how they look together. Oh, and by the way, the title of the botanical book, in case you are interested, is Botanicals, Butterflies and Insects by Assouline. It’s available here.
