The party's over

Well the Christmas decorations have all gone back into hiding at my house.

And while we only had them up for about 3 weeks, I was kinda of glad to see them go.

I love it when they first come out of the box on Thanksgiving weekend. It's like a prelude to a Christmas party for me. Opening all of the ornament boxes and seeing old friends.

But by New Year's Eve, the party is over and it's time for them to go home.

And since I got to redecorate the living room after we moved back home, here is just a small picture of what I had done.

I absolutely love the silhouettes! I'm glad I got to capture the moment.

I love your fireplace. I hope you don't mind but I'd like to copy the design for mine. Right now my fireplace looks like it belongs in a bathroom...it has white tile on it, uggggghhhhh

I know she won't mind copying the fireplace, but be careful with the hearth area. Ours is only about 2-3 tiles wide and we never use it. we are afraid that we will get some pops that will either burn holes in it or catch on fire. It is original to the house, btu if I would have done it I would have added a couple more tiles in front or raised it a little and added a brick hearth.
