Would y’all just take a look at ole Santa in these pictures? He’s from Kirkland’s Home in Hixson, Tennessee. When my eyes fell on this particular Santa picture…it was love! Just maybe it’s because I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE holly leaves and berries! This one was almost the size I thought I was going to find for our breakfast area or kitchen. It was love…Santa and I got out of there and I know….you’re thinking…WHAT!!! Yes, I do know we haven’t gotten to Thanksgiving yet, but when I don’t buy it right away…I always miss the one! Bob held the picture up in both the places….you know where I thought it would go! Well, then I thought why not try holding it up over the mantle (mantel) and with that we tried it. Many of you know that about 3 1/2 years ago…that fireplace got a real makeover. It’s been named by me as “the ugliest fireplace,” that I’ve ever seen. Mainly due to the black mortar used to build the fireplace. Fortunately, that same mortar has faded on the exterior of the house. Nothing would rid us of that black stuff inside except the makeover. Thanks to 2 ladies, who posted their “ugly fireplaces before and after photos.” You can find the info on how to make your own “ugliest fireplace” into one you enjoy decorating, too. There are detailed instructions on my makeover post. Now, back to Santa’s picture…I love the holly leaves and berries, don’t you? I’m thinking our grandchildren will enjoy seeing him wherever we decide. For now, I’m quite sure he will be on or above the mantle. I love mantle/mantel decorating…stay tuned!
