How Could I NOT Buy This??

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.

Oooh, it's gorgeous. How old is it? It needs a fern or tree behind it...

You don't need to have a fireplace to have a piece like this! It is beautiful!

Oh, I can see why it would be hard to deconstruct. It's wonderful.
