Today's OOL (Objects of Lust): Burne-Jones screens

Today's objects of lust are a couple of folding screens I found on ebay. The screens have canvas reproductions of Burne-Jones artworks on one side, and apparently wood stained a dark mahogany on the other side. Anyone have a spare $1,450?

Hi Grace! These are quite elegant! I especially love the Sleeping Beauty! I have a couple of tapestries that I picked up in France that have this look. It really sets the mood I want: relaxed elegance and a peaceful home to come to at the end of the day. How are ya'? Anita

Anita, you tease...you mention all the amazing things in your house, and I want *so badly* to see an entire giant online album of pictures of your entire stunning abode...inside and outside.

I would write more here, but I'll go comment it all on your blog, so I'm sure you see it :)
