I felt I needed to add just a bit of the fall season into my home. I just moved a table that once held my tv over to a hallway space that was crying for a piece of furniture. It fits well under the already existing painting. It is an iron frame sofa table with a marble top.
It is still in the very high 90's everyday but if I wait for Dallas to cool down, well then I might just miss fall altogether.
I found this adorable fall flower arrangement at Michael's and just had to bring it home. The owl just adds a touch of humor to the arrangement and makes me happy.
She needed just a tiny lift so I placed two interior design book beneath her.
To her far left is one of a pair of a Maitland Smith bronze candelabras with marble surrounding its base.
It is extremely heavy and full of details.
Of course it has a cherub, working, working.
And some egg and dart detailing along the bottom and beading around the top.
Sitting next to her is the ever diligent bronze griffin holding a brass torche.
To the far right is a lamp with a glass blown globe.
The shade is covered in script.
At the top is a finial. I seem to have a thing for finials. I also happen to love all the details in this painting and never get tired of taking in all of the details.
A bronze cherub playing her violin sits next to the lamp.
As you know I love cherubs. I never set out to have a collection of cherubs but somehow they just found me and there are many more around my home.
The painting is a gouache painting. Prior to purchasing this painting, I hadn't heard of gouache painting. It is similar to a watercolor, but a pigment has been added to make it opaque. The artist drew the design first and then painted it.
I really debated about buying this sofa table way back when but I must say it has served a multitude of uses over the years.
Have you ever noticed that you had a collection of something without consciously setting out to collect them?
