Day 152 - Fireplace (Day 18 of 25 days of Christmas)

This is the 'display' under my small slim tree in my living room. The doll is a 'toni doll' - not my original one, but the dress is an original that I made when I was maybe 13 years old. I also made the little clown - one of my few crochet projects.

Here's the entire tree, which is filled with my most prized ornaments - from over the years. A few from my kids childhood, a few from our travels and some fairly recent. Of course I had to add at least one elephant (at the bottom).


And here it is from back a ways. I love my fireplace (and my gas logs). It was originally a wood burning, but I'm way too old to worry about wood.

Oh I do wish you could come too. I'd be delighted. I love having guests and you're welcome anytime :)

That would be an elephant clock under the side table. I have elephant "almost everything".... been collecting for years and kids & friends... well it makes it easier for them.
