Sitting By The Faux Fire and a $100 WINNER!

In the seasonless south it's all about creating that feeling with my own spin on what it means to feel cozy by the fire with a cup of hot chocolate in hand (or in this case, glass of wine:~). It's been gloomy and wet most of the week, so I had a little time to "warm up" the master bedroom mantel today and change it around with a few autumn touches. I had the idea of...

bringing in some of my favorite metals, which are copper and gold. Some think that it's taboo to mix the two, but I love all metals mixed together in a room setting. 
Even silver...
A vintage copper bucket that is filled with fall foliage from the "faux department" of my studio. Of course I don't have a department...tongue in cheek if you will be I have several containers of silk flowers and divide them by season and store in plastic containers...
The gold mirror is a vintage frame with convex glass that I painted in Krylon Looking Glass Paint (affiliate link) and distressed. I talk more about that technique in THIS post...
I've been going through some of my Christmas containers to get ready for a yard sale (if it ever cools off enough to do one!) and started thinking about the glow of the upcoming holidays. Out came a strand of twinkle lights and tossed into the large vintage copper bucket filled with firewood...
Glass cylinders that I use for so many purposes have been spray painted partially with gold paint and turned upside~down to make pedestals...
The glow of the lights is so pretty against the copper and at night it looks like a fire is truly burning!
The mantel is opposite our bed and it's not a working fireplace, as you would never need one here...
Details...I use the tall glass painted cylinders as mini cloches, and in this case they cover old lemon tinted chandelier drops. The velvet pumpkins are from Love Feast Shop
