The fireplace in my family room is decorated for winter. ha ha, winter. It’s Phoenix. Here’s my winter fireplace, just pretend I live in Colorado.
The inspiration for the rustic winter theme was the tree from Goodwill. Last year I used the tree outside but this year, because I can never use the same thing in the same location twice, I brought it over to the fireplace.
Recently, I happened upon the moose at Goodwill and thought it would go perfectly with my theme and the lone tree sitting at the fireplace waiting for inspiration to strike. They were both great finds from Goodwill of Central Arizona.
Next, I turned to things I had in my home. A galvanized bucket, an old window frame and a small throw, that once belonged to my grandmother, were all things I had from my mom’s home in Colorado. Throw in a live wreath, some logs and pinecones and my fireplace is perfect. Perfect. for a home in colder weather.
There’s my fireplace and here’s to your (winter) day, no matter what the weather!

I love the stone that you used for your fireplace. Do you mind me asking what kind of stone that is and where you got it from? I am looking for something like that and your fireplace is beautiful. Hope to hear back from you soon!

Hi Meaghan, Sorry for the delayed response. I can’t find the information regarding the name of the stone. My husband and I went to a tile supply yard, in Mesa, AZ., and I found it there. This fireplace was at our previous house and I didn’t bring the extra stone with me to my current home. So sorry. I loved that stone too!
