I Need Your Advice

I bought these two beautiful pictures and the coordinating mirror over the weekend. I just love the symbolism they convey for our family. I have welled up with tears several times already! But, I have a problem and need your help. Do you think we've placed them too low on the wall? Would you move them up? How much? If we move them up, should we move the light fixture up too?

Ooops! I just realized that the above shot includes my husby's best feature! Sorry about that!

They are beautiful (the pics not your hubby's best feature!)!! I would move them up to the middle of the next light stripe on your wall. =-)

perfect placing. I would love to know where you got them, or title and info.

middle of pics should be at your eye level. So, it looks great. It seems to me that people hang stuff way to high and it looks silly. designer homes have stuff lower.

My two cents.

wait, now there is a tie!!! So, I will make it diffinitive. Leave them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Two against one! ha!! See Gillispie, gotta do two to win!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:)
