  1. My favorite is the non-working fireplace with the berries and fruit – and that’s my favorite tree also. I’m a simple holiday decorator – a nod to the holiday, but nothing glittery or over the top. I still hang my grandchildren’s stockings on my fireplace mantle even though they are nearly 30 years old and I no longer host at Christmas. They are hung for my pleasure alone and a necessary part of my Christmas decor.

  2. Thank you, i had to go back and really look but, i think my favorite was the very first one, it was so calming and peaceful, that time you have after everything is done and you sit and think of what’s to come, Christmas morning or when the world was was waiting for The Christ child to be born.

  3. Love the twinkle lights IN the fireplace.
    We don’t burn an actual fire in our fireplace often here in Ocala so my brain is exploding with ideas!
