Thanks! You know, it is a bit of a trend. Honestly, I am not sure how original I feel about it, since I have been seeing quite a bit of this sort of thing around. But, on the other hand, I have been itching to try this out. I tried to give it more of my look, I guess, by the angle and lighting. Anyway, glad you all liked it. You wouldn't believe the beautiful things around this home. The home itself is stunning, and way in the distance behind that baby is some Nambe silver, one of many pieces around the home. This was shot in the grandparents home. #3038144
