The Cornice Shelf

This is the cornice at the top of the
windows in the breakfast room.
 The wood cornice wraps all the way around
the top of the breakfast room windows
 and the door to the patio.
It continues into the family room.
Larry built it years ago. 
I'll do a 'before and after' post soon.
A pretty fireplace screen I found at Marshalls.
Ditto on the pottery rooster, and 
blue & white Chinese jars.
 I also added several Longaberger baskets.
 The watercolor paintings are colorful farm
scenes. I found these at a garage sale.
The antique cigar mold is from Germany.
It was a gift from my German house guests.
Biscotti and pasta jars in blue, yellow & white
sit at the other end. More cornice shelf
pictures of the family room.....coming soon!
