The still life is composed of a few items passed down from generations on my mom's side of the family and are set on the mantel of our fireplace. The mirror cutting into the top left is a gold leaf painted oval mirror that was a housewarming gift from my great great grandparents to my great grandparents circa 1920s, and the blue and white finial was once fit onto a hanging lamp in my mother's childhood bedroom - she liked it enough that she brought it with her when her and my dad bought the house. The dried rose was a gift to her from my dad's business partners after our second dog died. The mantel is located in what used to be a family room but was converted into my parent's room years ago. I have many good memories of sitting in the family room during the winter and watching christmas movies with my sister, or as a family, with a warm fire going.
