My latest treasure finally arrived on my doorstep! By way of Treillage, a favorite shop in NYC.
This terracotto plaque based on Bertel Throvaldsen's work (a Danish sculptor who spent most of his life in Italy 1789-1838) expresses so well that time of early evening that I love so much. The day is almost done, the house is beginning to quiet and there are sleepy babies on my shoulders.
Hung in the foyer along the path I take every night as we head to bed. It's my memento of this special time.
Mr. Webb...who would rather be
climbing a deer stand this time of year than a step stool.
