>I’m off work for the week and about to head out and meet my sister with her two kids and my mom to have lunch and finish up Christmas shopping.
Head on over to Small Notebook. They are having a handmade Christmas this year. Her post has some great ideas. Also, if you are renters (of an apartment or a house or whatever) and you desperately love the look of a fireplace check out theirs. Her husband built it. Looks like stacks of different types of wood. I love the different colors. I don’t think its a real working fireplace but you could certainly put candles in the “firebox” to achieve the same look.
