Tweaking the Fireplace

Welcome to Metamorphosis Monday, hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch!


I have just a small change I'm sharing this week. I tweaked my fireplace decorations a bit. Here's the before picture...

And here's the after picture. I changed out/added some candle holders, and added some glass pumpkins and a leaf garland to the mantel...

I'm also trying something different inside the fireplace...

I've been burning a yummy, licorice-scented Halloween candle from Colonial Candle...

I will be having an upcoming review and giveaway on my review blog, so stop back again for more details. Also, you can grab my review/giveaway button and link and add it to your sidebar if you wish.
Bird taper holders, amber taper candles, and mirrored votive/tealight holders: Colonial Candle
