We don't have a fireplace. Would a kerosene space heater we keep in case of long-term power outages count?

You'll notice I didn't give any definition of what "mine" and "yours" were in the thread title, so I don't see why not. How do you decorate one of those?

Hey Al - think we may have the same stove insert - Dovre? We had the mason do a herringbone grill rather than the stock sunburst of the Dovre - to the detriment of the heat moving out the top of the insert I think.

I finally finished decorating the living room fireplace...the teddy bears insisted on coming out of hiding for the Kodak moment.

Merry Christmas!
