My Fireplace, a BIG Thank You & Merry Christmas Wishes….


I wanted to be sure and make a quick post to THANK YOU ALL so much for the Happy Birthday wishes and the kind words you shared with me about my exciting news. 

You are the best prim pals ever ;)


As promised, I have some pictures of the fireplace to share with ya. 


I haven’t finished decorating it yet…  

I still have to do the top and get something on the two walls…but here it is so far!


I just finished up this garland a little bit ago…it’s dried cherries…. dried orange slices and some dried bay leaves…it’s hard to see the leaves because they are turned on edge…it’s really pretty tho. 008

Please don’t mind my mess on the table, I see I forgot to pick some things up…


I think it turned out very nice for a sorta ‘make-do’ fireplace…our only expense was the insert itself …most everything else was left overs… brick and re-purposed oak (most of which is actually base trim that we ripped down then layered to make it appear more massive than it really is :)


I decided to put it in the corner so I can see it from the kitchen…

The photo below is

the view  looking into the dining room from the kitchen


What a difference, it makes it so cozy in homey in there!!

[btw---are my pics too big??  They seem bigger since I changed my blog template…if they are too big let me know!]

Just in case I can’t get back on here to make another post before Christmas…

I’d like to Wish you ALL the Merriest Christmas ever…

May you and your family be blessed with the light of Christmas, which is faith…the warmth of Christmas, which is love…the hope of Christmas, which is peace…

Merry Christmas, friends!

God Bless Our Troops and their families.

Thanks so much for stoppin’ by♥

Until my next post….TGC!
