The mantle is French purchased from The Nest in Homewood, AL. The windmill picture hanging above the mantle is from upstate New York. Tricia's Treasures, also in Homewood, purchased it from an elderly couple that had lived in the same loft apartment for over 50 years. It is one of my favorite paintings
|Blue Transferware, Shabby candlesticks and old books find their home on the mantle...The blue piece of concrete is from a building destroyed in Mexico after the Rita Hurricane!|
|Peters Pottery Bunnies & vase along with an antique pitcher purchased from a local dealer in Madrid Spain grace the right side of the mantle. Peters Pottery is a well known pottery in Mississippi.|
|An up-close look at the French mantle.|
|A collection of plates hang on the wall...|
The second area is the great room mantle. As you can see, The Queen adores architectural pieces.
I love any type of architectural iron!
|The old window that hangs above the mantle came from an old elementary school in Alexander City, AL.|
|This marble piece serves as a sofa table. It displays many of my nest & bird collectibles!|
|The Queen loves door knobs...|
|This wire basket sits on the coffee table filled with mercury-type balls and little baby image pillows.|
|This piece was purchased in Marietta, Georgia & sits on the wall behind the sofa. This picture doesn't do this piece "justice", because it is a beautiful piece. I will try & get a close-up on Tour #2.|
|Majolica pitchers & a funky flower frog!|
|So many collections...these are green transferware butter pats.|
Well, I will stop here, today, on the Royal Tour...Pictures are hard to capture the entire room. I will try & use better photography skills on my next post.
From The Steers' Home to Yours (or better known as "The Cranky Family")...Just Remember...A home is only a home when love abides there & the Lord is honored. Have a blessed Sunday!
