As we dream by the Fire

I love a fireplace. I love that my house has not one, but two fireplaces to adorn for Christmas. It is instant coziness when you curl up on a dreary day with a good book…or good Hallmark Christmas movies…whatever your pleasure. After the tree is covered with beauty, the fireplaces are the first place in the house to be decorated. Of course, stockings are plentiful…Santa needs choices after all!

Our kitchen fireplace really stands out with the more rustic elements and natural greens.

How cozy is this?

The mercury glass trees sparkle in the firelight.

Vintage Santas and Vintage quilt stockings hanging from a turn of the last century school coat hook look perfect together.

Speaking of that bearded gentleman, we are bravely moving closer…the candy cane was a great incentive.

  2. I love the quilted stockings….did you make them?? I couldn’t ever cut up an old quilt…esp since I know what goes into them….
    Your home looks cozy and ready for the season

    1. The stockings were an Etsy purchase made from purely cutter quilt pieces. I love old quilts as well but I’m happy to see the tattered ones made into things of beauty again. Cutting a great old quilt…no way! I love the warmth they bring to a home all year round.

  3. Your home looks lovely Amy. I just hung the stockings I made for our 10 grandchildren last night. So many fond memories in them, and now our house looks more festive. I am feeling the spirit! Happy holidays to you and your family!

  4. Ooooooo love your collection of vintage Santa Claus. They’re beautiful. I wish we had a fireplace at home. We’d probably never use it since it seldom gets cold enough here in South Africa, but it just makes everything looks so cozy. And poor Princess, I suppose big men in red suits with white beards can be a little frightening
