I'm so excited to say hello to spring. But, a little sad to say goodbye to the warm wood-burning fires Stroud builds for us every night. We cleaned out the ashes this weekend so even if the temperature dips again, fire season is officially over at the Arthur house. I came across these pictures of different ways to dress up an empty hearth. I've never even thought about putting anything inside a fireplace except a fire, but now my wheels are turning! Which one is your favorite?
