Makeover for Fireplace Mantle....

It was time for a change for the fireplace mantle....
I used my Red Candle Holders and Sphere from Hobby Lobby....
My beautiful Wooden Trinket Box from Big Lots filled nuts and vine balls......
Readers Digest Books from Thrift Stores, Yard Sales, Goodwill and wherever else I can find them for .50 cents or less.......
And to finish it off~ Beautiful dried Boxwood topiary that I found at a wonderful antique store between Atlanta and Auburn University on I85.
So.... How do you like it?
Would you like to come into this room,
cozy up to a warm fire with a book?
Or.... Do I need to change something?
I am always open to new ideas!

The only thing that would make it perfect - is good conversation with my blog friend -- and a cup of tea - so so lovely Kathy - ga

The mantle is lovely, the only thing I can see that needs is something a little lighter on the left side to balance out the lightness of those terracotta pots. Balance wise that would be nice. But that's just me, and it really does look lovely! Blessings, Becky

The mantle is beautiful....I would add some more fru-fru on the ledge itself; ie. vines, lace something like that. But it is "me" that would do it. This is your mantle and your cozy place.
Wish we could get together and have a cup of coffee.
