Barb @ Grits & Glamour is hosting a new blog party called What's on Your Wall Wednesday. Should be lots of fun!
I'm starting off w/ "wall art" that I am frequently asked about on my blog....the arrangement of sheet music I have over the faux mantel in my living room. It's actually over the mirror that's over the mantel but that's neither here nor there.
Before the old mirror, I had a very large, old painted sign, from an antique store that used to be in Ft Worth, hanging there. Like I said, it was large & bold... w/ peeling white paint & black letters so it made quite a statement. When I replaced it w/ the old mirror found at auction last year, I loved the mirror but the wall didn't have the impact it once did. I tried hanging sheet music over it but it looked stupid... like teh sheet music was just floating up there. Before I took the sheet music down, I tried hanging a metal scroll over it & loved it. A small victorian portrait & a vintage postcard helped tie it all together.
I used corsage pins to hang the sheet music & the postcard.
The postcard gets switched out for the seasons...for now, it has a wintry feel. It's just an image I printed off my puter & aged w/ some distress ink. I love the Victorian family in the gold framed picture. I should have gotten a close-up of it but you can enlarge the pic to see the detail, if you want.
Also on this wall is a couple of framed pieces of sheet music & a trio of cherubs. I'll share pictures of the framed sheet music (as well as the rest of my collection) in tomorrow's 3 or More Thursday post.
Hope you all enjoyed what's on my wall... let's go to Barb's & see what everyone else has hanging! *grins*
