Mantel Friday

I got an electric fireplace in December, and I'm so excited. I love the way it pulls my living room all together. This wall has always waited for a fireplace on it. So this is what I ended up with.This is what it looked like at Christmas. I actually turn it on every night. It has a heater that can be turned on, and it warms up the room very quickly.
I love this meme! I have tons of photos that I took at Nell's Hills that will work for this one! Yeah! Aren't you all stoked? Ha! Thanks for hosting this Friday Fun! Thanks Beth! Its a great idea! Join me, won't you? I'm over visiting:


  1. I stopped in from Beth's party. How exciting that you finally got the mantle/fireplace you were wanting! Thanks for sharing it with us!

  2. Lovely! I know you must be enjoying your new fireplace.

  3. Hi Sandi, your fireplace is lovely....don't you love how they just 'make' a room?

  4. We've looked at the electric fireplaces. This is our first house without a "real" one, and we miss it. We just aren't sure our room is right for one...still thinking about it. Yours is very pretty and must be fun to have!


  5. O, I know you love that new fireplace. It looks fantastic....

  7. Hi Sandi...

    Ohh my friend, I'm so happy for you...getting a new fireplace!!! Love, love, LOVE how you decorated it for Christmas...looks like you had great fun! I'm kind of in the same place as you...have always wanted a fireplace in my living room and finally got it last month! Of course, mine is faux but it still lends so much decor interest to the room! Now I'm having fun getting to decorate a mantel! Yay!!! Sandi, I do hope that you'll share some of Nell Hill's mantels with us...I'd love to see them!!! I just adore everything she does!!! Looking forward to it! Thank you so much for sharing your fabulous new fireplace with us today!!!

    Warmest winter wishes...
