fired up for fall

Fall has arrived in Arkansas and it's fabulous!  The days are still a little warm, but there is a definite chill in the early mornings and evenings.  I know it's a tad early but I just can't quit dreaming of starting the first fire of the season...

Is there anything better than cuddling up by fire during cold nights?

And you can't forget the lovely glow that comes from a nice fire...

Fires are so cozy and create such a warm atmosphere.
( pun intended)

This burning fire completely makes this formal room feel more inviting and intimate. 

I want to be here...candles, magazines, a gallery wall and that precious velvet chair...yes, please!

How yummy is this...a fireplace in the dining room!

So for those of you who don't want to fill your fireplace with an actual fire...
You can always get a similar feel with candles...

or try flowers...

or even books...

But I'm sticking with the real deal this fall...

Stay cozy!

  1. You cannot go past an open fire, and you have chosen some of the best photos.

  2. Great photos! I agree - a fireplace makes for a much cozier room.
