Spring Fireplace

I went to Homegoods today and brought home these 3 enormous candles.
And the SPRING twiggy art was irresistible at $16.99.
So right to the mantel they all went.
I made a box out of an old shipping crate (leaving the hardware on) and new wood for the candles and surrounded them with pine cones and a faux forsythia branch.
We don’t usually have two benches here in this room but we do use them both.
It looks better with one.
I love those huge 3 wick candles. They should last a really long time.
Since the TV takes up the space above the mantel,
I just decorate below where the fireplace is not working.

It looks great, Holly! I'm so glad it's March!


Forsythia certainly signals the beginning of spring. Gorgeous post!

So pretty! Love your new finds!


I love your style! And I especially love how you mounted your tv on that wood. Is there a tutorial for that somewhere? tsmonson (at) hotmail (dot) com.


I am lovin' your twig Spring sign–and how you've incorporated it into your fireplace decor! I have been a follower of your blog for awhile and love your decor style…Bev


Hi Holly, great HG finds and love what you did with them. I LOVE candles. A few weeks ago I was at our local HG store and came out disappointed…I bought nothing! Hope you have a wonderful weekend, Gail

I think your fireplace vignette is adorable. What a great idea for decorating a fireplace for the spring! I would love to copy this… you know imitation is the best form of flattery!

Shoot, we don't have a HOME GOODS in WA….looks like great stuff…I love the huge candles in the rustic box…wonderful…I am not feeling the SPRING yet in WA State…thanks for the inspiraton


Great finds, I love Home Goods, it is one of my favs. Great irems and the fireplace looks so pretty.Cynthia


I so wish we had a HG near us…but I'd need your vision to make their goods look like this anyway! I guess we do need to concern ourselves with function as well as beauty…at least that's what hubby tells me all the time! I think you pulled that off this time! Hugs,Pendra

I've GOT to get myself to Homegoods!!! I have an idea; let's find one in between Virginia and California and meet there! xoxoPS. When I find a way to reach my hand through my computer screen you will find quite a few items in your house missing. Starting with your new twiggy SPRING.

Your forsythia does remind me of spring…I love to bring some of the branches in. Your candles are so pretty in the wood crate and I really like the \”Spring\” twiggy sign! I feel a trip to Homegoods coming on! lol! Your living room is very pretty (and so big!). The mantel looks perfect! :)XO,Jane

Woah those are really huge candles and I love them as much as that lovely Spring twiggy art. Gorgeous living room you have. Got my eye on your next posts.


It all looks so charming Holly! HomeGoods rocks. I keep telling hubby it is a prerequisite that where ever we move to it as to have a HG!;) Thanx for partying at my place.


VERY cute! I wish we had a Home Goods here. I seem to miss out on a lot!


I'm a candle addict, so I love what you did with them. That Spring sign is pretty cool too.
