Dark and cozy.

After I removed this mirror from the wall behind the Christmas tree,
I gave it a try over our fireplace...... and  (insert angels singing).......

....lo and behold, I actually liked our stodgy old fireplace for the very first time!

Well, that's how I'm feeling today with the snow falling outside
and the lights twinkling indoors.  Tomorrow, who knows?

I usually shy away from using real greens in our house because our steam heat is so drying
 the greenery will probably be brown and crispy in a few days time.  Thinking ahead,
 I intertwined real and faux greens.  I bought a 20 foot cedar garland and only used about half,
so the other half is in cold storage (outside buried under the falling snow).
I think I saved enough to rewind the garland before the holidays.

Here's how it looks in the light of day.

And in the early evening hours.  Sigh. 
I think I'll just sit here for awhile before I clean up the big mess I made.

Thanks so much for visiting!  I've got a few more changes going on that I'll share
 in upcoming posts.  Until then, I hope you take the time to slow down
 and enjoy the season!
