The Lexingtonienne



A couple of weeks ago I told you about my “push present” from Mike, which included two fabulous bottles of wine and one very exciting lithograph by the French artist Raoul Dufy. Our plan with the dining wall was to get several small items framed in gold frames, and to hang everything with our new lithograph at the center.

Here was the BEFORE photo:

And here is the AFTER photo:

The whole collection actually looks larger on the wall in person than it does in the photo. But we have, in addition to the lithograph…

Four watercolors purchased in Firenze…





Four little depictions of angels playing instruments (also from Florence) — think Byzantine meets Florentine folk art…



A black and white photo of my dad waterskiing back in the day…


A black and white photo that Mike’s brother Tim took of a matador and a bull…


A print from Charleston that my friend Mary Beth gave me…


A piece of original art by a Kentucky artist that Mama gave to Mike for his birthday last year…


And a partridge in a pear tree. 🙂

We’re very happy with how it turned out!  OK, I’m off to try and turn a bunch of tomatoes into salsa.


P.S. Happy Birthday to my sweet nephew Joe! He turns six AND started Kindergarten today!

    YAYYY! My picture made the dining room wall!! And I do have to say that I, being the left-brained geek that I am, am loving the fact you got everything to be completely symmetrical 🙂
