A small corner of my world....



The mantle and fireplace in the den......new decor this year. Who am I kidding? Do I EVER do it the same way from year to year??? Nah......
But at least it's DONE....moving on to the next thing......have a wonderful day!



Edited to add that we really do not use our fireplace anyway so the problem with things catching fire is not an issue. My mantle is only about four inches wide ( I would love to widen it someday and make it a much bigger focal point of the room...one day) so with the mirror resting on it, I cannot really put much there. I guess I could rehang the mirror....I think I took it down to paint the wall or paint the mirror! It used to be gold.... and the fireplace has glass doors, but I don't like the way they look, so I just use the screen as a decorative piece....and it IS Southern Living at HOME.....so of course I have to have it to demo!!! ;)
Anyway, it's not perfect, but it's good for now. Off to finish up things around here.......

It's all very gorgeous. A fireplace with a small mantle is much better than no fireplace at all. Looks great!
