This is just to let you know that I’m taking the months of June, July and August off from blogging. Posting will resume in September.
Have a great summer!

Last week I got word that the homeowners wanted back into their place and I’d have to remove my stuff from the room I was using to photograph this mantel series. I was disappointed since I had planned to do six more. Oh well…it was fun while it lasted.
Fireplace Mantel #12– Christmas In The Pine Tree State
I pared down to just a few objects for this Christmas display but made sure they were all interesting and/or had plenty of texture. By the way, if you’re wondering what the pine tree state is…it’s Maine. :)
1. Fabric wallcovering has the look of burlap
2. Large pine cone wreath
3. Vintage tourist plate from Maine
4. & 5. Brass holders with candles resembling tree branches
6. Plaid fabric sample hung by curtain rings (this idea came from a short article on wool textiles in World of Interiors Magazine)
7. Antique woven chair
8. I bought the Christmas pine tree on sale at Crate & Barrel. The ornaments I made from old photographs, scanned onto cardstock and then glued to stained embroidery hoops.
A peek at a new series- place settings!

The American Foursquare was part of the vernacular architecture in the United States. This house consisted of four rooms on the first floor, four rooms on the second and dormers in the attic…all contained in a box or square shape. I thought the title was appropriate for my collection of images c. 1890-1940 since they coincide with the years of the Foursquare’s popularity.
