Art And Statues Around My House!




 The Picture below is my favorite. My Mom passed away a few months ago and left this to me


 My Mom gave these to me as a gift.









I hope you enjoyed seeing these as much as I love looking at them every day.

Wow, Lorene, you love cherubs like I do! I don't have such great statues around my place (nor such great art, for that matter!), but I do have cherubs scattered around. I have a rather large collection of blanc de chine cherub vases, but they are still packed away from when I moved to L.A. to finish school (I was not planning on being in this place long *famous last words*).

The piece shown in picture #7, the lady reclining on the chaise or bed with the cherubs floating around her? That is one of my favorite pieces of art EVER! It comes up once every blue moon for auction on eBay, and the seller usually wants so much $$$ for it that I don't bother bidding, or if they do start the bidding out at a reasonable amount, I so far have always lost out to a higher bidder. Makes me sad, because I would love to own that picture, but I am SO glad that you, my blogland twin soul, has it! It is a dreamy one isn't it?

So sorry to hear about the loss of your Mom. The loss of a parent is HARD, and takes a long time to deal with. I don't think we ever "get over" it, but time does help heal. I lost my father in July 2009, and before that, my best friend's father (who I love dearly) died suddenly in February 2008, so its been a rough couple years there, and I am just now starting to feel like I'm coming out from under being so down all the time. I am happy you have some lovely pieces from your Mom, she sure knew your taste didn't she?!

Oh, and your blue settee? THUD! (<--- the sound of me hitting the floor) LOVE it! I am a major fan of blue of all shades, and love, love, love French-style settees, so you can imagine how I feel about your lovely little sofa. So sweet!

Best,

Kimberly

Hi Lorene, we have so much of the same taste in decor, I have some of those same pictures and I absolutely love statues of ladies and cherubs, their all over our home... I really have TOO many, "glad my husband doesn't mind that our home is so feminine, he doesn't care how I decorate as long as I leave his Den alone,or as I call it MAN CAVE! So sorry to hear about your mom, it's really hard to lose a parent, my Dad passed years ago, it was a really bad time, your never forget, but time does help heal! I loved the tour of you beautiful things, hope you have a wonderful week!
hugs~~ Daphne
