I have an ugly angel brick wall that I don't like and would like to tear down but just can't swing it right now. It was popular in the 70's.
 I wanted a random brick pattern and my husband wanted a calculated pattern and he ordered it done his way. I conceded because it was useless to argue with my man, he did things his way ( in those days). All these years I hated this brick wall.

My brother  who does beautiful woodwork thought that all I needed was a wooden mantel and made it as a gift  and even installed it for me. The brick wall is 70's and the mantel is colonial. I couldn't say no to him. Still the two just don't suit the style, which style, I don't even know... lol...

There's a big crack that has developed on the side of the brick wall and I would like to tear it down some day. I just can't do it now though.

To reflect more light in the livingroom,  I thought that I would hang this mirror I found.  Taking a good picture of a mirror without getting my face in it was a bit of a challenge.

There were no hooks on the frame to hang it with so my handy husband drilled tiny holes and got hooks screwed in and wire and hung it up for me. Then I decorated the mantel for Halloween, and the piano, the hutch and the desk. I decorated the door and the outside the front entrance using the same decorations as last year.  Nothing grand but thrift store and Dollar Store finds. I told you that I'm cheap.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
