fireplace look #2

If there is one thing I am forever changing is how I decorate the top of my pot belly fireplace! You may have read about my first look here, which really isn't my first look, it's only the first one I blogged about! it's looking like this....

I brought in a huge cherub statue I had in the garden, a rose topiary, some old books, and faux ivy pots...
My firescreen used to originally have all scrolly bits at the top just like that one you can see on the right hand side there, but James accidentally knocked it over and they broke off! I still love this firescreen so I wasn't going to get rid of it.
So I placed a whole heap of vintage doilies over the top to cover the broken bits and at the same time display some of my doilies.
But ofcourse during the 'shooting' of these pics for this post I decided to go out in the garden again to see what else I can come up with! this was all when I should have been washing the floor..sshhh
Mmm, this brass teapot with broken handle will do and yes, this vintage watering can might do the trick too!
Side view as you come out of my bathroom.
Well this is what it looks like now... BUT I just remembered those vintage trophys I bought the other day.. I'm sure they would look good too.. Ok better go and try it out!
take care girls! Maryann  ps. don't forget to enter my giveaway if you haven't already!
Today I'm linking up with Cindy at My Romantic Home for Show & Tell Friday
