At Christmas time I love to have a picture as a focal point on my mantle piece. As you know, if you search around the charity shops at this time of year they all tend to make an effort to theme some of their stock. Last year I found this lovely little hand painted picture. It cost me £1.50 but totally changed the look of the sitting room. Accompanied with little candles and some old teracotta flower pots that range wildly or widely (!) in price. These were 20 pence each. The white candles are from a normal household box of candles so tres cheap! Hope you like it.
The little cupboard on the right of the mantle piece is another Ann Wood piece. You can read more about her work here Ann Wood She is soooo clever.
