While there is not just one fireplace style represented in this parade of lovely, there are a fair number of European country fireplaces since we can’t seem to see enough of that interior design style.

On a Personal Note

I will never forget the heartbreak of our eldest son at age 6 realizing at Christmas time (because his Awana group was collecting care packages for impoverished children overseas) that not all children lived in homes with fireplaces for Santa to slide down. He was beside himself sobbing in the car that night on the way home from church, and I did my best to tenderly assure him holiday magic transcended matter, time, and space. There’s no guidebook for navigating that sort of despair, and I’m not sure I have ever truly gotten over it. As a parent, you continue to face excruciating moments where their childhood innocence at times will disappear before your very eyes.

But is there a place for Christmas wonder?

15 Holiday Quotes to Spread Some Serious Christmas Cheer via @PureWow

Certainly a fireplace is but a trapping, a Christmas tree is not necessary, and Santa’s gifts typically fail to deliver the true meaning of the season.

Unto us a child is born. Love walked the earth. A light came into the world so pure that it flickers in hearts thousands of years later.

Peace to you right where you are.

    My favourite is the shabby chic & rustic by Beach Studios. The chandelier and old chippy mirror grabbed my attention. But, what really got my attention was the cast iron grape vine log set. It set my heart a pitter patter. I love a touch of whimsy in every room. It shows one doesn’t take themselves too seriously.
    I find Christmas has become too commercialized. I don’t allow myself to fall into that trap. Oh yes, I do like to drive around and take in the lights, wander our Main Street all decorated for the season with music playing, and the happiness that surrounds us. It’s the excessive buying, the stressful looks on some faces and even rudeness as they scurry around on the hunt. If only we could get back to the true meaning of Christmas.

      It really resonates with me as well. And the driftwood! Yes! I am smitten with the way this company is redefining how to enjoy fire! Here’s hoping you glimpse beauty right where you are flowing from the truth at the heart of the Christmas story. xox

    So many lovely fireplaces to oooh and ahhhhh over! But my favorite part of this post is what you wrote here:

    “Unto us a child is born. Love walked the earth.
    A light came into the world so pure that it flickers in hearts thousands of years later.”

    Amen!

    Great post Michele! I go from loving traditional fireplaces with a golden French framed mirror above the mantel to a minimalist fireplace with no mantle at all! My favorite thing about this post is the last paragraph. Thank you for reminding us of what the season is all about❤️
