Brick Fireplace Basecoat and Giveaway

Halloween is over, only 34 children came to our rather quiet neighborhood. Jan sat out in the beautiful evening to greet the children and give out candy. I've got a bad cold so didn't want to expose the little darlings to my coughing and sneezing.

Instead I was contemplating the start of our Christmas scene project. Jan started it today! He sawed the parts for the layers of brick and wood framing and painted the base coat for the brickwork.

And, here are the pieces layered in order. The wood is from our back yard fence, we saved some when it was replaced in April.

It does resemble his childhood fireplace! I know Jan will make it amazing when he renders the brickwork.

A fireplace needs a clock and I know just the type I want, will tell you soon.
