building a wall.....

the bones............an antique fireplace mantle....................that was it.................when we built an addition onto our house ten years ago .........................it was a challenge to match things to our old home built in 1911...............................................this is our family room............planned around this antique mantle, the builders listened.............(thought i was crazy most of the time!)......i don't care for the brick, it was all i could find at the time......but it houses the t.v....................two doors with storage beside.................a little herb cubbie to the left.............and up high is more storage doors in the wasted space...................it has a gas log which has made it very cozy on those cold winter days.....................................................................would i change anything..........?.............probably given a chance and the money..............................but it is okay, i do like it.......................................................anyway.......................i am blessed! linking up with www.1890gablehousemusings.blogspot.com for my favorite wall...............i do have more, but no more time today...................blessings!

What a lovely room. I can just imagine snuggling up in that chair and listening to the fire and hooking a pretty rug....on a cold winter night that is. However, I am definately ready for spring. Have a good day! Lisa
