I had seen this mantle a while ago.
I recently decided it could be rescued.
One leg of it was shorter than the other.
Some well meaning person had added a board to it.
Joe removed the board and trimmed the other side.
It is old and has hand forged square nails in it.
It has to lean because I am not willing to move the French coat of arms
or put nails in the stone of the fireplace. Yikes y'all I need to dust.
I added couple of other chippy items under it.
Yes, the cactus is blooming now.
In Olive Out news I have been diagnosed with a frozen shoulder.
I am busily engaged with Physical Therapy biweekly. Joe and I are still cleaning up after the ice storm. The FEMA guys did arrive last week and picked up our curb limbs and cut trees. I unfortunately have lifted too many tree limbs since the storm.
