Two Things I Love Around My Home

1) Fireplace

Someone referred to this as our wedding shrine and that's an apt description. That's our wedding album on the floor and a pic of me in my wedding dress on the first shelf. The top shelf holds my silk wedding bouquet, a pen and ink drawing our good friend made from one of our wedding photos, and our toasting goblets. On the wall, we have two portraits from our couples' shots and our vows. We wrote our own vows and my roommate at the time wrote them in calligraphy on scrolls my mother-in-law made. The letters were actually our cake topper, custom made by an Etsy shop, that we simply removed the rod and put them in the shadow box with the vows.

This is one of two fireplaces in our floor of the house. Sadly, it's all bricked up. But the black hearth surround is original we think.

2) Tapestries

I love the tapestries from Urban Outfitters b/c they are so multi-functional. I've used them as drapes, to cover file cabinets, and as wall coverings. In this case, my mom surged the edges and we've hung them to a curtain rod using rings with clips on them. Since we have 12 foot ceilings, we really needed something tall to fill up that space and I think they frame the windows nicely.
