New Mantle Picture

I'm not done with the worst project in the world yet...although I'm positive I'll be done with it by the end of this weekend. I'm 95% done, just have a little more work to do!  Post on it next week though, sorry!

We are getting close to done with our living room.  I don't think it'll ever be officially done, but the room is starting to feel warm and cheery instead of big and empty.

Last weekend while we were at Cracker Barrel, we bought a picture to hang above our fireplace, and I think it fits our room perfectly.  The focal point of the room is the big wood planked USA.  We don't want to go overboard with red, blue, and white, but we do love the subtle 'proud to be an American' look.

I was once told by my roommate in college that I was her most southern friend.  She must not have had very many southern friends, but I do love the look and feel of a wrap around porch with rocking chairs on it.

I took pictures of it after I put it on the wall...sorry the angles aren't the greatest.

I'll show how she ties into the entire living room after this weekend.  Hope every one's had a great week and has an even better weekend!!  This weekend will be filled with yard work, running, and finishing the worst project in the world for me.  Happy Friday!


  1. I think I saw this last time I was at Cracker Barrel and was thinking how much I loved the feel of it! Great addition!

  2. That must have been Julia! Those South Florida folks think anything above them is "The South" and anyone between Georgia (maybe a little into FL) and Virginia thinks FL is the yankee land or Cuba... :-) According to my Dad, I'm a yankee...go figure

    I'm dying with anticipation to see what this secret dreaded project is! hehe. Oh and I like your idea for fundraising with advertisements on your site!

    And I'm really hating my kitchen project now. Did I tell you the plumber backed out? I'm still looking for someone to move that stupid valve for me...


Like what you saw? Have a question? Got a suggestion? Leave me some comment lovin!
