A patched together lifestyle of thrift and charm...

A Fireplace Christmas Treasure Chest...

I'm declaring my fireplace and mantel 'done' for Christmas!  
Our fireplace isn't used for fires at this point (needs some repairs) - so...


 ...I filled it up!  I'm loving my Christmas treasure chest...


The mantel got a little work as well... (the star is from last year)...

  but I hung it in front of another picture with a great frame 
that serves as a wonderful backdrop.



The pinwheels are also from last year - but check out the 
walls - we just finished painting them!  I'm so happy!   
(Would prefer to paint the brick - but My Love strongly disagrees... so I can acquiesce.)

from 2012
Sweet angel and sheep add to the mantel village...



 Since we have repainted our living room - I'm going more 'white'.
  My only new purchases this year were these
three boxes of ornaments for approx. $3.50 - total!

 
 These help fill up our little table top tree.
  (Looks like I can still add some more ornaments.   
No worries - I have gold ones in my stash...)


 Love this leaf ornament - a gift from my daughter..
 
 More from my Christmas home to come tomorrow...
