niartist said...

LOVE this Karena! Those votives lined up on the mantle are so charming, and that painting - well, that goes without saying, but STUNNING! Really! WOW!

Thanks for stopping by the blog for my bosporus blog, and for leaving your ideas for the bedroom! I really do appreciate it!

I have an upholstred headboard, it's leather. I have to do something to cover up that window that I am going to be pushing the bed up against - so that's why I was thinking of the canopy.

I am in my bedroom now - giving it some thought - still on the fence myself! Oh what will I do!?!?!?!? LOL!

So lovely....and I would be delighted to join you. Mona

I collect mercury glass and adore the votive holders. Your mantle and painting epitomize the beauty of autumn. I can just imagine the warm glow the candles cast over the room.

Your Friend,
