Here is our mantel! The painting is one I bought for Taylor in New Orleans for Christmas one year when we were dating. The cool little wooden sculpture is the one item we bought and brought home from our honeymoon. It is an African carving of the Last Supper. I LOVE it.
View into the kitchen. Taylor thought to put books up there over the door. We need all the book space we can get!
View back towards the front door.
Taylor is SO proud of this--the red stag he killed on a family hunting trip to Argentina. You should have seen my brother-in-law in the process of hanging this thing up there...I was just sure he was gonna fall and break every bone in his body.
