Oh my, that is a beauty! i have bought those before and was never able to make them fit into my house. I certainly enjoyed "playing" with the mantels in the antique mall booth I used to have and was always a little sad when they sold.

How beautiful that you were able to use this one in your living room!

I love your mantle. It really completed your room. Thank you for your comment on my home in Eufaula.
When I saw your comment signed MO I laughed because the movie Sweet Home Alabama has the line,"Do we know...Mo?"
I feel like I know you now. We both like victorian things.
