Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire

well, not quite... yet.
But, we're beginning to see progress!!!
After chatting with the carpenter, we realized that more work needed to be
done, other than cutting out a larger hole to recess the television.
Mantels and trim.  Music to my ears.  I'm a trim obsessed fanatic

My gut feeling was that a mantel was in order.
Who doesn't want a mantel in their main living area?
We have one in our basement, but I'd love to hang stockings where they
could be seen more often!
Again, more trim is always calling my name.  I can't refuse.
Ching, ching!

This mantel is an absolute stunner
We'd love to have something like this.

We like the idea of trimming out the television just as the above photo has done.

The carpenter has a vision and I'm going with it.
That's scary for me.  Letting go is something I need to work on.

I'll make sure to keep you all updated.

I'm still feeling under the weather,
but it's much to difficult to resist blog land.

chat soon!
