Starting on December 13, 2010 the Burning Blog held a "Deck the Mantel" photography contest. We were looking for festive stove, mantel and fireplace photographs that displayed uniqueness, creativity and originality.
We received several great photographs of "decked out" hearths from across the United States and Canada, making it tough to determine just three lucky winners.
After much discussion, we landed on three winners who provided unique photographs that truly highlighted the hearth with festive decor and design.
Drum roll.....Our $500, first place winner is Walt C. from Tuscon, Arizona! Our $250 second place winner is Jenny W. from Nisswa, Minnesota! Our $50 third place winner is Jean F. from Racine, Wisconsin!
