I love dressing the mantlepiece. Everyone of those photos appeal to me except the organic one - it's rather heavy don't you think.

I'm way behind this year but those pics have inspired me to get going. :)

Hi Jen, glad you enjoyed the pics and feel inspired to get going! don't feel alone, I'm no better... still dragging my feet!!!
PS> agree the organic one is a little OTT for me.

So lovely the idea of a fire to stay warm at Christmas. Shame in Sydney we always need air conditioners to keep cool!

Hi Kellie,
yes the thought of a fire is really grand, but seems only the peope i nthe northern hemishere are "fortunte" or cold enough for that. We in South Africa are also too wram this time of year for a fire..... I still enjoy the thought tho!!!
