The center and focal point of our home is the fireplace (yes, the one on the burnt orange wall), and again it has been decked for the Holidays!  I was quite anxious to get started on the mantel because I knew exactly what I wanted to use and how I envisioned it to look.  I was thrilled with the result of my Fall centerpiece creation and wanted to use the log as the focal point for this year’s Christmas mantel.
