my Sepia Mantle




Have a Merry Monday!
Please enjoy these pictures of my study for Christmas at the homestead and thank you for visiting. My sepia display includes a cloth Santa I made from vintage fabrics, a reindeer made by a friend during art school, lanterns my sister Aggie bought for me in Morocco, raffia and wood beads all compliment the original 1796 fireplace and raised panel door...
