Come on Baby, Light My Fireplace

Mantle with candles

This blog goes out to all the East coasters being snowed in right now.  If you’re lucky enough to have a fireplace, settle yourself around a cozy fire and stay warm.

 

If you’re not so fortunate, you can always add visual warmth and glow by placing a mantle in a corner and filling with candles, or placing candles in a non-working, existing fireplace.
