After a Christmas tree, very few things say "Christmas," like a fireplace. Madame Alexander agrees, as a fireplace was front and center in the Santa Baby Set for the 16" Alex doll. This Christmas, I made it a priority to find a light bulb for the Sindy fireplace I bought from ebay several years ago. I didn't get stockings or lights on the fireplace, but there is a nice array of Christmas cards on the mantel. Please excuse the dimness of the picture; I wanted to show off the cozy glow of the fireplace to its best effect.
I want to paint the fireplace white; the years have left this piece rather yellowed.
Did any of you get any doll goodies for Christmas? I got a J-Doll. I think next I am going to post, however, on how I picked up the light bulb. It's a fun little story, and it will feature some photos of the little shopping area in Olmsted Falls that I promised to post about a long time ago.
