As every parent and grandparent knows, there is nothing more magical than Christmas . . . as seen through the eyes of a child.    Artist Donna Green's heartwarming "Family Love" (below) captures the essence of that magic.

Featuring a large stone hearth in the background,  a roaring fire casts a warm glow over this nostalgic setting. Traditional Christmas decor lines the mantel shelf.

The two Christmas decorating fireplace designs  that  follow  are made of river rock. The design at left features a half log mantel shelf resting on a pair of log corbels, or brackets. Evergreen boughs and  sprigs of red berries line the man-
tel shelf.    A pine cone wreath caps it off.

The  striking  design  below  features bunches of greenery cascading from a naturally formed tree branch resting on log  corbels.     A red poinsettia plant peers from the greenery  and  adds  a splash of color . . . as do the baskets of poinsettias resting on the floor below. Note how the curve of the branch echos the arch of the firebox opening.

The stacked stone fireplace surround pictured at left,  with close-up image below, anchors the living room of a log home  in  the  mountains  of Northern Georgia. Featured in Log Home Living, the rustic mantel shelf  is  lined  with small branches of pine and red berries, an assortment of pine cones, red can-
dles, and a pair of snow shoes.   Pre-
served sheet moss randomly placed in cracks between the stones lends ad-
ditional contrast and color -- as well as a mellow "patina"  --  to this cozy holiday hearth.

A heartwarming hearth (below) is the focal point of an English country cottage.     Draped from the mantel top,  a simple evergreen garland is festooned with bows and baubles to create a festive fire for the holidays.
