What? No Fireplace? Well then...I have just the idea....

We like a nice fireplace at our house. If we had one, that is...don't know why we didn't think of this so much sooner. My husband and I found an old gas "fireplace" for 20 bucks at our favorite antique place. I knew in an instant what I wanted to do when he pointed it out, and it was this:

I will most likely add a lot more candles as soon as I get to the store to buy some of those clear votive holders....but I thought this was pretty darn nifty. I also like the idea of filling it with old bottles of singular flowers.

Lots of different things to make it your own.
