Home: Hearth

Home: Hearth

Our little house is over a hundred years old. This is the fireplace/woodstove that heats the house. Above the mantle on the right is a silk screen that we bought in Tralee in Ireland on our honeymoon in 1979. It was inspired by an illustration in the Book of Kells. It seemed to be a good omen: there’s a C for Coughlin and a fish for Fisher. the photo on the left was a prize winner I took of my mom’s barn in upstate NY. Many of the things on the mantle and the heron behind the plant were gathered on our annual summer caming trips around our country; others are treasured gifts. Autumn cold has moved in, so we’ve got a fire going.

    Home is where the hearth is, and what a warm, comforting place it looks too.

    Jacki stole my line! Wonderful treasures but I would rather see the Heron flying free (Get it He – Ron Flying Free!!) Ah well.

  4. I would love to see your prize winning photo…

    So welcoming and warm a scene…looks like home to me!!! I’m a really fan of “meaningful” interior decoration…gives one a sense of security.
