so long, Summer…

It’s crazy that Summer is over… for us, that means we have to start thinking about winter (yes, already!)… We actually started digging up our holiday stockings and started brainstorming fun ways to display them around the hearth.

In the past we had used a pretty, dainty display of candles. This year we wanted something more substantial.. something very wintery and cozy.The only catch? We can’t really use our fireplace as a traditional fireplace with a traditional fire.

The first thing we saw, and fell in love with, was this beautiful birch log set that comes with a type of gel that lights up and makes flames! You don’t even have to worry about bringing in logs, venting your smoke, or anything else that comes along with burning a traditional fire.


We got this birch “faux” fire set, if you will, and as soon as we lit up the gel and took a step back, it became the most beautiful, peaceful, fireplace you could imagine. We LOVE IT! Now our Sis Boom stockings have some real competition for beauty…

    Thanks for the link to the Birch log sets. We have one of those “unusable” fireplaces and that would work so well. Love the stockings too. I love the holidays and can’t wait until Christmas. Just a big kid at heart I guess.
    Have a great weekend.
