Now I am a wood burning fireplace kind of girl...the warmth, the crackle and the ambiance is so very nice, especially around the holidays. If you are new here you should know there is none of that going on at 65th avenue, sad, I know. I do have fun decorating the mantel for the different seasons though. If you would like to see the mantel before it got some chalkboard paint, click here.
I bought the garland from PB a few years ago on clearance. I used to use fresh greens but I hated having to wait until the week before to decorate the mantel.
The trees are from Hobby Lobby. The last few years I used tall candlesticks, but they have been hanging out all year so I needed a change.
Is it just me or does this sign remind you of the movie It's a Wonderful Life? One of my favorite movies of all time!
Here is the other side of the room when you can see the dining room table. Right now it's acting as Christmas central until I finish putting everything together. What a difference good light makes, this picture was taken on a sunny day. Today we had none.
