Snowflake Tin Tile Screen




Here it is the first week of December and we have only just had our first fire of the year in our fireplace! We seem to need a really cold night to initiate it, and we finally made it with the daytime temps in the twenties! Brrrr! But no snow yet.



The daylight is still funny though, and I'm photographing an area that always has odd lighting anyway, so we have natural light, lamp light, window light, and everything in between.




My fireplace screen has to be put away for awhile, but I thought I would try it out here. I like the snowflake motif on the tin tile and would still like to display it.



The books were already on display, but I added a mantel cloth I found recently. The candlesticks give it a suggestion of an altar.


The cloth has a knitted lace edge, rather than the more common crocheted one, which always excites me. It's an unusual find.




I'm always energized by neutrals and white. And though this display is somewhat busy, the colors keep it toned down.






Such beautiful work!








Now I need to go stoke up that fire and see if the weather report will turn out to be true about a few inches of snow! Wish us luck!
Ciao! for now!

  4. Knitted edging is always something to behold! I've been knitting on one similar off and on for a year now. Just can't seem to get it done - your beautiful scarf inspires me to get it done! Sally

  7. I love the white cloth with it's pretty edge and the tin tile. I can't believe you might be getting snow down there already. The past 2days here have been beautiful with temperatures around 10 C. or 50 F. Very unusual but we may get some snow before the week is out. Stay warm and cozy. Hugs, Pamela
