Rick and I have been doing a little yard sale-ing over the past few weekends. It's an activity we both enjoy. We don't purchase much, but we always love to look at other peoples' junk.
When I first saw this fireplace screen, I walked right by it. Doubling back, I took a second look. It was heavy. It was brass. It was very cool. I bought it. No, we do not have a fireplace.
I envisioned it disassembled. Wouldn't those peacock feather looking parts make great wings for a mixed-media piece? Now that I have it at home, I'm not sure I can bring myself to deconstruct this beauty. It folds up so nicely and neatly. Hardly takes any space at all.
