The color above is not exactly accurate, but the slate from the fireplace came out so lovely that I thought I would leave it alone. Apologies for not getting  a shot of this leafy mass on its blocking pins, but here is the final (yes, ok… slightly crooked) result:

So the most critical question that remains is what the heck do I do with one green doily about eight inches across?
