Hey there, today I thought I would give you a sneak peak into my fireplace decor. When my hubby and I were searching for a farmhouse, one of the more important things on our "wish list" was a wood burning fireplace. We didn't get one. Instead, the previous owners left an electric fireplace behind so this is what we embrace. Currently it's in the bedroom and it will be staying there for now. But who knows...I love to move things around. I've had the same decor on it for the last 1 1/2 years so I'm thinking it's time for a change. If you haven't guessed it yet, I love rustic primitive stars.
This decorative piece is one that my sister-in-law Debbie gave to me when my mother passed away. Debbie and I had gone to one of our favourite stores while she was visiting. After we came out of the store, she surprised me with this. I will cherish it always.
I purchased this candle box at a local craft sale a few years ago. I love it's primitive design and it gives off a nice primitive glow. One day I may attempt to make some myself.
Since I had the camera in my hand I thought...why not run outside and take some photos. There were some large fluffy snowflakes coming down so I thought I'd just walk around outside a bit and have some fun snapping some photos. This photo shows part of my front yard and the field across the road.
This is out the back, the pond is a bit lower so you can't really see it right now. Those are fake Canadian geese you see sticking up in the center of the photo, they're actually on land in front of the pond. The previous owner left the geese behind and we haven't decided what to do with them yet. They may fly away to a new home come Spring or stay. We don't have very many ducks visiting the pond throughout the summer but we do see the Great Blue Herons which is nice. Not so nice for the gold fish though.
We have had a very mild winter this year. Even when we have snow, it's not near as much as other years. We recently had a thaw and lost most of the snow cover. It appears winter has reappeared somewhat today. Our local groundhog and weather predictor saw his shadow this week so 6 more weeks of winter lol.
Katie was outside when I took my little stroll. I thought I'd take a picture of her this time since she wasn't able to run off. She wasn't impressed. She kept trying to get away from the camera...and I didn't even have the flash on this time lol. The fur babies are starting to run when they see me coming with the camera now, too many flashes I guess.
