Happy Friday, I hope everyone enjoys their weekend.

In our living room we put a gas fireplace since it is a tad more formal and I didn’t want wood getting dragged through the whole house.  Our mantle in the living room is decorated simply with fruit garland and mercury glass ginger jars that are there all year round.

This year on the hearth, I used one of my French flower buckets that I used the mod podge transfer method on with white Amaryllis.  I thought with all the color of Christmas I needed a corner of quiet for the eyes.

On the other side of the hearth I placed a large mint glass candy ornament, a large Christmas ornament that is onion shaped and this year I felt the urge to find a top hat.  I wanted one that was whimsical instead of the serious kind for my Christmas decorating.

I will show the rest of the living room in an upcoming post.
