Fishtail Cottage's Christmas 2016... #4

Oh my gosh! I am so excited.... I had seen this idea somewhere (probably Pinterest) almost five years ago before we did our great room remodel.  A mix of wood rounds filled to the brim of this amazing faux fireplace mantle that I found while out shopping. I've dreamed of doing it myself....you know that long list of something we would love to do "someday"?  But doing it myself and actually doing it have not paired well together.  Well, my dear friend that did the original construction of our remodel, took sometime to create this insert for me just in time for Christmas.  He came over and installed it today and I'm floored with how much cozier the room is.  It feels more warm and inviting with something so simple!  I couldn't wait to photograph pictures and share with you this dreamy little nook in my home. I won't say much more, just sharing the photo's!
 

Unbelievable right? Such a busy time of year for everyone so I want to thank you for taking the time to come over and see what I am sharing.  Finally crossing something I've wanted to do for years from my list feels so good.  It makes me wonder what inspiring ideas you have thought up but never have gotten to doing?  Look forward to hearing from you! xoox, tracie

I love that idea and it gives the room a woodland feel. So pretty! I have always wanted to make a vintage ornament wreath and I am in the process of doing it right now. I hope I finish this year. It is harder than I thought!
