Treasures from Southern Accents

We found some goodies to bring home during our recent trip to Southern Accents.  See pictures from our trip here.

We bought an 8 X 10 picture frame made from salvaged wood.  I will use it for my daughter's graduation picture or prom picture.  Most of the frames in our house are made from recycled wood and other materials.

I could not resist this adorable cross.

We did buy a fabulous corbel to serve as a small entryway table.  Our foyer is not very large, and there is very little wall space because it is open to our living room, family room, and there are two doors, a closet door and the front door.

The artwork is by Ryan Carlson.  You can read a post about his art here.

I added Ariana Franklin's The Mistress of the Art of Death series.  I recently learned that Ariana Franklin passed away.  I am so sad because she was an incredible writer;  this is one of the best series I have ever read! I got the idea about the corbel and books from a wonderful book entitled Decorating With Books.  I will post more on this subject next week!

The wood shop at Southern Accents added some molding on the corbel for us.  One of the highlights of visiting Southern Accents was the tour of the wood shop.

I also added an old plant stand in our foyer.

  24. Oh Ricki Sweetie...
    What a beautiful share. I absolutely love this one. Your little entry way share is so gorgeous. How pretty that little corbel brings that wall to life. Along with your books it is perfect. Does that not say LOVE?

    Your cross caught my eye right off. I collect them and have them running down my hall wall. All colors and makes and sizes. They just give me such comfort when I walk to and fro, and I silently say a little prayer for someone or something each time. A little reminder you know?

    I love that book case, now that too is awesome. A perfect choice. Looks like you had quite a successful shopping excursion. Love it.

    Thank you for sharing sweet one. I hope you have a beautiful St. Patty's Day tomorrow. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
