Small Changes

 The past few days I have been rearranging some things around the house.  This oil painting of sheep is one of my favorites but I didn't have it in a very prominent place in the house.  It has been in my office, which right now, looks like I'm waiting on the film crew from Hoarders to show up.  It is that bad.   But, that's not what this post is about so we won't go there....back to the painting.
Isn't it sweet?


Before I had a Norman Rockwell artist proof print hanging here and though I love the image it didn't really flow with the rest of my decor.   I don't think I'd posted it on my blog before so this is the only before pic I could find.


 The painting of sheep resting near a barn now hangs where the Rockwell did.  The painting is framed in with some of my red transferware, two pair of mirrors, one of which is antique bubble glass and some wall corbels holding left and right facing birds.


Now, I'm waiting for Jonah to help me move the dining room table around.  Until then.... I'll be joining:

  15. That painting is so beautiful, Nancy! It really looks wonderful there and ties in perfectly with those plates and the lovely cabinet. Pastoral paintings are so pretty! There's a calmness about them that seems to settle over any room they're in.
