We have a pretty modern fireplace. You flip a switch and it lights right on up. That’s pretty cool but modern also means “small”. There’s not a lot of room, only a couple of inches to be exact, to decorate atop our fireplace so I have to get creative around the holidays.
This year I decided that I wanted our fireplace to have these elements: snow, berries, chevron, burlap, and a hint of gold. Mission accomplished. Our Christmas tree has only gold and silver ornaments and trim so some red on the mantle seemed fitting.
Bailey, our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is a bona fide member of the family so he gets his own stocking and a gold dog bone charm to accompany it.
