Home Is Where The Hearth Is

We had some great Christmas lines in our store this year and I really enjoyed working with them. My favorite had to be Basic Grey's Wassail though. I just loved the patterns and colors and I used it to create a 'Home is where the Hearth is' layout.

I gave my layout this title because when I was growing up our home had a fireplace in the main family room. It was always a focal point of the room, whether we had a fire going or not, and when we did have a fire it seemed to magicaly transform the room into a warm, glowing place that we all loved to gather in.

When we had our home built a few years ago, we did not put in a fireplace at that time. I really missed not having one and when we finally designed and installed one a couple of years ago, I felt like our home was complete.

Have a blessed day!


  1. your fireplace is absolutely beautiful, and its so true, isnt it, how families gather around the hearth....

  2. Very warm and cozy by the fireplace. Great conversations happen there! Enjoy.

  3. Joanne your layout is lovely as they always are. The photos of your layouts here and on the store blog are always so crisp and clear. Would you consider sharing some hints on your blog or the store's blog on how to take better pictures of our layouts for posting on the gallery?


Thank you for your lovely comments!
