Show and Tell Friday

Hello everyone~ Today I'm joining Cindy's Show and Tell Friday and Courtney's Feathered Nest Friday and I have been itching all week to share this!

I have had something on my Wish List for many years. Last weekend, I got it! Yes, dreams really do come true!

So without further adieu, here is my object of desire in the living room at long last.
A white full sized fireplace! She needs to be dressed properly, the mirror needs to be lowered, and the holes in the wall where the old mantel used to be need to be repaired but here she is in all her glory!Just in time for Christmas! I can't wait to dress her up!

I also got a new cloche. Not sure if the kissing angels will stay in there but for now, I like them!Thanks for stopping by today and please check out My Romantic Home ~ for all of Cindy's 'Show and Tell' participants and French Country Cottage ~ for Courtney's 'Feathered Nest Friday' particiants.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Sharing from my heart~ Sandi


  1. A lovely fireplace, it will look great decorated for each season. The kising angles look perfect under your new cloche. Take care:)

  2. Gorgeous! Your posts always brighten my day and I certainly needed that,today!

  3. That is so pretty and will be perfect for Christmas.

  4. I have been looking into electric for quite some time now. I just don't know if the cost to run can be tamped down by my exuberance to have such an item. Maybe one day we too will have our fireplace! Right now I would settle for a lighter that worked so I could light my pumpkin spice candle. Hugs. Tammy

  5. Lovely! I am sure you will enjoy it during those chilly winter evenings. We bought an electric insert for our wood-burning fireplace and really like it. We can still use the fireplace for wood if we want to by just taking the insert out. I am looking forward to seeing what you do with it for Christmas. What fun it will be to decorate!

  6. Hello Dear Sandi ~ I ADORE your new fireplace and can see just why you're so excited about it! And you must have been a good gal last year for Santa to bring this to you early! You're going to have so much fun dressing it for all the holidays and please don't forget to share! ~Hugs~

  7. Oh my sweetie this is simply wonderful! I bet you are in heaven over this. Can't wait to see how you fluff it up! Cute cloche and I love the kissing angels.

  8. Lovely! It will be beautiful decorated for the holidays. Have fun!

  9. Hi Sandi...oh how lovely...that white fireplace is beautiful..I'm looking forward to seeing the pictures of the "after" once you have it all dressed up and lovely..although, to be honest, it looks lovely now, too :) :) Have a lovely weekend. Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)
