Fun Fact: It is now legal for Vermont Maple Syrup Producers to sell their Very Dark syrup!  It used to be considered sub-standard, but the truth is that locals prefer it, for its stronger taste.  Sooo delicious!

Our new wallpaper (the real kind, not the computer kind), for our living room...

The background is cream/pale golden, not grayish as it seems here.  Picture it with rosewood stain on cherry woodwork and mantle, all painted surfaces the same as the background, and a brown carpet similar to the berries here.  We have really had to think about the carpet, as we've always had light colours.  But they are also miserable to keep clean. Ha!  I think it will look smashing at Christmas!
