Fall Fairy and help neede

I need a little help... the fall decoration fairy came to our house last night, but I'm to the point where I want finishing touches put on things... starting with la fireplace.

Love our enormously tall living room. Hate, hate, hate decorating it, painting it, arranging furniture in it, and especially trying to put anything on the fireplace.

Last year I found a huge, beautiful branch in our yard and used it to provide height and color. It worked fabulous. but of course, I don't have the branch anymore. What to do, what to do...

I like the red of the painting up there, so i'm thinking perhaps... ding, ding, a large red painting? lol

Someone save me...

Fall Fireplace

I wish I could tell you where to find some big ol' candle/pumpkin holders like mine, but I found mine at a thrift store. I think they originally came from a decorator warehouse store. I actually painted the black after I bought them because I didn't like the original finish.

I think a huge empty frame painted red or black would look great on your mantle. I use empty frames all over my house for decorating. I love the look.

Joy, I went to the thrift store today.. first time ever. I do Goodwill about once a month and we used to shop at a Hudsons Treasure Hunt before we moved. Was so thrilled with my finds. I'll have to take pictures tomorrow. But no chunky candle holders. I'm totally on the lookout for those. Too neat! Thanks for stopping by and commenting. The mantle drives me crazy except for Christmas time. :)
