Christmas Fireplace 2013

The fireplace is all dressed up for Christmas. I try to come up with a different look every year but sometimes I think it all looks alike!  I’m calling this mantel, rustic glitz, a little rustic and a little sparkle. But anyway, this year the centerpiece is a big twig star.  I had the twig frame left over from a long ago project and added many more twigs to it, painted it white and added Epsom salt snow and glitter.


At night, with the twinkle lights lite and a fire going it looks so pretty.


I’ve had the garland for many years and it’s seen better days for sure. I tuck in some fresh greens to fill it out a bit.

The urns hold more Epsom salt snowy branches and are wrapped in burlap scarves.

More fresh greens are in a galvanized bucket on the hearth.

I still have some Christmas decorating pictures of the kitchen to post soon. We’ve been busy around here getting ready to host a Christmas party on Saturday so the kitchen has been in a perpetual state of messiness! But it’s a good thing. Smile

I hope you are enjoying this season and are remembering why we celebrate! Merry Christmas!
