Inadvertent Theme Room

It wasn't on purpose, I assure you. But I seem to have sailing ships in this room. Decorators warn of the poor taste shown when one theme decorates a room. This decorator says, where's the fun in that! The etched window was rescued from a falling-down farmhouse.

No one else wanted it all covered in twenty years of dust and guano. But I did. And, yes, that is the original framing. 

The brass plaques with a Spanish galleon motif were Mom's. Probably a wedding gift to my parents. I remember them hanging in pretty much every house we lived in. They are well-traveled. But as far as I know, only across land.
