Friday Finds: {Mirror, Mirror On The Wall}

Hello there! Friday got here fast this week.  My girls were home from school Monday and Tuesday due to the weather so this week flew by.  We are expecting snow again today {sigh}...I am ready for warmer days and sunshine!
 
Yesterday, I shared some updates I made to our mantle.  I am loving the way it looks and the texture and interest the natural elements adds to the room.  This mirror is one of my favorite finds and unfortunately, it was discontinued shortly after I purchased it.
 

Since I get tons of questions about it, I thought I would do a little shopping and find some similar mirrors that would achieve the same look!

As always, the direct links to each mirror can be found by clicking the corresponding number/description below the picture!  Here are some great options:

Our Home: {Nature Inspired Spring Mantle}

 
Our poor mantle has been bare since I took down the Christmas decorations the day after Christmas! Remember my Christmas mantle...bright, cheery and festive...
 
 
After taking down the marquee sign and lit topiaries it was sad to look at but I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do.  I always crave simplicity and cleanliness after Christmas so I left it alone for awhile just using a few things to fill the space.



After living with it this way for awhile, I needed a change! Being that we live in Texas, our winters are always interesting!  We have days that feel like summer only to be slapped with cold weather the next day.  I decided to go ahead and add a little "spring" to my mantle with natural elements (or faux "natural" elements in this case). 
 
 

The driftwood planter (which is actually a candle holder, I just removed the glass insert) and the large piece of driftwood bring in a rustic feel, while the glass jars keep things light and bright.  I like the look of layering things in front of the mirror using the stone wall as a "backdrop".  The candles add a nice, soft glow to the area, especially at night.
 

I love that the large, wire covered jars can be changed up easily...such a simple way to create a totally new look while adding in seasonal touches.  The faux fern sprigs will be great in the spring as well as the summer.  I left the faux branches that were already in the jar for now, but will probably take them out when the weather gets warmer.  I am sure I will mix in something else!

 
You can ready about the small, DIY jar candle holders by clicking HERE.  I love how the texture of each item adds interest to the space!
 
 
The touches of green throughout the room really give it a fresh, new look. 

 
Thanks for stopping by! Check back tomorrow for my Friday Finds post, you can see last week's post by clicking HERE!
