Ruby (Red) Tuesday -- A new picture
This is the new picture. Mrs. Jim bought it at a boutique held at our church. Adi, the model dog, is here so you can get the perspective. Measurements are 36 inches by 52 inches.
Now, where do we put this nice picture that Mrs. Jim brought home?
That was to be my job to sit it on the fireplace mantel just to see. Mrs. Jim had to help me, the picture IS large.
How do you like it here? We would have to paint or surface over the mirror presently glued to the wall behind it.
Mr. Jim and I think it might should go where this tapestry is hanging now. Something a little taller might be nice in that spot over the doorway to Mrs. Jim's study.

We both like the tapestry, our builders wife and our friend helped us find it. Oagga knows how to shop for prices as well. She also paints. Oagga was with Mrs. Jim at the church shopping and ladies luncheon and approved of this picture.
Then we would move the tapestry over here, above the China cabinet. I can do that, I have an 18 foot ladder. I hung it before, per instructions from Mrs. Jim.
But we will need someone to hang the picture. It is too heavy and bulky to be up on a ladder with me.
Before we do this, Mrs. Jim isn't sure she wants to keep the frame as is. She might (have it done) cut it down to four to six inches wide or get a different frame.
Mary is in charge there, you can post your own if you wish.
I have a boogey man under the bed poem posted at JIM'S LITTLE PHOTO PLACE for this week.
You have a beautiful abode!
Adi fit in wherever you place her. Some starry photo model.
You at least have space to hang your new painting, even though one might break one's neck to have a look at it.
My advise; when you can afford that lofty house and a painting to go; rent a handyman to do the hanging up.
Broken bones heal slow after a certain age.
PS I like the frame of the painting as it is now. I gives depth to the landscape painting, and probably is original.
It looks great over the fireplace, but since I have a mirror over my fireplace, I'll vote for the mirror to stay where it is.
You and Mrs. Jim will find just the right spot for it.
The tapestry is lovely too, as well.
You've got really interesting ceiling lines, and very high ceilings which give your home a majestic feel.
What a beautiful home you have!
I vote for over the fireplace - to me it already looks at home there and makes the room look warmer than a mirror. That's just my vote. :)
It's a real nice painting though!
Good pic for Ruby Tuesday.
Thanks for your comments and glad you enjoyed the jokes. Take care,
