I've been lucky enough to be in the right place (thrift stores) at the right time (three different occasions), resulting in this eclectic collection of composers.
Mozart is a plaster type bust, very rustic and chippy.
As a matter of fact, he's missing a bit of his nose as you can see in this photo. I think it just adds to his charm. Vintage imperfections always seem to have a positve, rather than negative, impact on me.
Mozart usually spends his days on the fireplace mantel, but I thought I'd try him out in the bookcase for a while.
Beethoven, on the other hand, is made of a resin type material.
Like Mozart, he's usually on the fireplace mantel, but I rather like the way he looks in the bookcases.
I must admit, though, Beethoven looks a bit grumpy in his new location. That being said, he looked grumpy on the mantel as well :)
My newest acquisition is Bach, who is just a small, plastic bust found at a Salvation Army a couple of weeks ago. Plastic or not, he looked quite regal with the late afternoon sun streaming in the other day.
Unlike his counterparts, he has lived on the library shelves since his arrival at the cottage.
A handsome trio, I'd say. Never mind the different materials, sizes, styles, or ages. I think they complement each other nicely.
And of course you know I was not tweaking this all by my lonesome!
Just peer down the hall a bit and you will see that I had a pair of eyes watching my every move whilst rearranging and snapping photos!
This week I'm joining Claudia at Mockingbird Hill Cottage for Favorite Thing Saturday
and Brenda at Cozy Little House for Tweak It Tuesday.
Have a great week, everyone!!
