A New Gallery Wall

 Hi there friends...
Hope you all had a great weekend...the weather here in NY was beautiful...but it sure is hot and sticky today!! 
~~~
After changing things around in our family room I was left with a blank wall that drove me crazy!! 
I still wanted to used these pear plaques I ordered from Nell Hill's a few years ago...but without the chair and lamp here they would have looked lost hanging alone.

Here's the Before...
So I came up with this grouping... 
Here's the After...


Demijohns on the table...I added an apple stem to the large green one for added height and texture.
 The little bull plaque was another purchase from the Country Living Fair...I'm sorry I didn't buy two of them:-(
 The old frame and tole tray I found at a local antique store.
Looking at this spot from the sofa...

...then from the kitchen table.
  Look what else I found at the fair...this large column base. 
I've wanted one of these for awhile :-)
 
  Thanks so much for stopping by...have a super week and stay cool!!

I love your new finds from the country living fair! I look forward to it coming to Atlanta this Fall. The arrangement on the wall with your demijohn bottles looks great. It is hot and sticky here too.

What a beautiful display, Martina! Looks gorgeous! Happy 4th!

What a pretty grouping Martina. I love the beautiful green of the pear pictures and the glass demijohn with the apple stem. The bull plagues really is adorable. You know I am the same way, I buy something and then wish I had bought two. (Now I buy the 2nd item...I'd rather have an extra than wish I had bought one more. LOL)
Happy 4th of July!!!

I am greatly weighed down by your opinions for that specific tale. A additional deeper and staged expertise could well be very fine for me
