Where the Family Gathers

This is our fireplace mantel in our Family Room where we spend most of our time. This is quite a large room but the fireplace is in the far corner...now off to decorate some Christmas trees! XO

Just beautiful. I love having a mantel also in our rec room. Hubby will be, God willing, SOON, remodelling our rec room. Tearing down the brick fireplace and making a wooden one...God bless precious sister.

Hi, Maryjane. Your mantel is just beautiful!

Thanks so much for sending me the vintage Christmas photo card. I've already posted it on Vintage Holiday Crafts and linked to your blog from a note next to the photo. If you'd like me to use different text for the link, just let me know.

BTW, I tried to send you an e-mail over the weekend to thank you but it bounced. I just received a notice a few hours ago saying that after repeated tries it couldn't be delivered.

I have that same crochet that you have on your mantle. I did mine big enough for a small tablecloth.
