My brick fireplace was looking very bare and pathetic after all the decorations from the holidays were taken down and put away.
My mantle is difficult to decorate because the ledge is very narrow and slightly curved. I don't want to drill into the brick so I'm limited to finding things that will fit on this narrow curved ledge.
I found out about this little gizmo on Pinterest. It's a brick hook and you can find it in the hardware section of just about any home improvement store.
It fits right in between the bricks and lets you hang things without having to drill into the brick. Amazing!
I saw these beautiful floral wreaths at Target during the holidays but didn't want to pay $40.00 for them. I know, I'm cheap, but I hate paying full price for something at Target when I know it will be on sale later. Sure enough, right after Christmas the topiaries were half off. Target.com sweetened the deal with a $10.00 gift card with any online order of $50.00 or more. So I got my wreath, had an excellent excuse to buy a cute new pair of shoes to bring the total up to $50.00, and got a gift card!
Now I can hang my new wreath (which I love) and my mantle looks so much prettier!
