Yes, there is a hearth in my dining room, which is where they used to cook all of their meals back in the 1700s
It is a very large fireplace, that is in working condition. I have decorated it with white lights and white branches this year. I keep a basket of my favorite holiday books there, too. Across the top are little votive candles, I always have them going at parties there are about 30 across the top of my fireplace. They are so pretty night.
These are stockings are new to my collection this year. These are hand made by wonderful Aunt Wendy. She hand makes ornaments for us every year. I'll show you those later in Part Three of the tour. But this is what she cross-stitched for us this year. Oh, I just love them!
Ok, more sparkling reindeer, can be found on my dining room table. Also, these gorgeous black iron Christmas trees, I fell in love with them when I saw them at a local shop, and knew they would be perfect on my white table.
I love filling bowls with sparkling pine cones. Very simple. And more candle light can be found in these oversized pillar holders.
and last but not least....
I am sharing a few of my ornaments.
Part 3 of the tour will consist of some of favorite tree ornaments.
