A New Focal Point For Christmas
Yeh, I know I should clean up the floor by the fireplace. But we are real here on this blog about our imperfections. I don’t do this for pinterest pins. I do it to document the way we live here and life at Wildflower Farm. I wear many hats here, house cleaner, personal shopper, animal care giver, farmer, homesteader, cook and restaurant staff, resident artist, manufacturer, food preserver and so very very many more. Realistically, I don’t always have time for the simple little stuff. So excuse the fireplace it’s realness. Just because it isn’t clean in these photos doesn’t mean I don’t clean it regularly. Just that I don’t have the time to spare every two hours.
I am really thrilled to finally have a mantel in the tv room. it has been bugging me since we moved in over seven years ago. I always hated this room it always felt ratty to me. Having people hang out in here always made me feel self conscious at the unfinished rattiness. Everyone thought it looked fine except me. But now, this room has becomes absolutely perfect and so beautiful. it is amazing what one little piece of old wood can do for a space, when it creates the most simple lovely focal point. I will never be ashamed of this room again. I can now be very proud of it. I am over the moon I am so happy.
We got it up and dressed it lightly for christmas last night. It is just so lovely in here. I can now feel restful in this space without always being drawn to the fireplace for all the wrong reasons and feeling something simply isn’t right. Now nothing feels wrong. The focus is just right.
Thank you for reading and for being the first to see the new improved fireplace.
