At The Lovely Cupboard, Heather has been working on redecorating her guest room.  One of the projects?  Getting some gorgeous artwork on the walls.  She found a piece of art at a flea market that had a lovely gold frame, but the matting and art were, um, not exactly the look Heather was going for in her guest room.
