This week’s photo challenge topic is Grand.

Last night I went to a friend’s house for a party. I love going there, especially at the holidays because she is an antique collector and a fabulous decorator. She moves her pieces around and combines them in a new ways every year. The family room mantle and fireplace decorations this year were grand!
