I think a custom cut mirror (regular or antiqued) with an inch and a half bevel would look great in the mantel inset. Cathy is not buying it. That’s ok.
Also long ago, Cathy asked me about a light fixture for a funny spot high on the wall leading into her bedroom. I suggested this Circa library sconce with a piece of art — to highlight the art and illuminate the little hallway… (it’s one of my favorite little spots in her house).
It constantly changes.
While I’m watching and hearing about all the snow shoveling going on elsewhere…days like this are pretty nice! (Remind me of this when we are packed in with fog in July). Chief likes this perch in the park… with the view of the other bridge.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
