I mean, really, look at this thing:
I just love the color on these walls...it is Chamois by Ralph Lauren, available at The Home Depot...so buttery and warm, I think it helps warm up the brick, too...which I wanted to paint, but hubby said, "Are you crazy???" lol:
We absolutely fell in love with it when we bought this home...but it is a challenge to decorate, so I just decorate it right over the fireplace, instead of the whole length of the mantel, which I think would look like a store display, what do you think? (If you have suggestions for decorating the mantel, I'd love to hear them!):
I love this little duckie, he is handmade and even signed, and I got him for $2 at a garage sale, SCORE!!!
Here's my other favorite duck in the room, my oldest son drew this in art class several years ago (yes, I need to use goo off on the frame, all in good time, lol):
Oh wait, who's that hamming it up for the camera:
It was me with my Mom's birthday present...we went to her house yesterday for her birthday, Robert couldn't wait to see what she got:
Happy Birthday, Mom!!!
