Fall Mantel

Fall Mantel

I changed out the mirror from this to:

I’ve had it since June, but like everything else around here, it’s just been sitting around.

I knew that I wanted to use these three things.

The hydrangeas have dried, they are the ones from my fall table, here.

Instead of candles I put my blue mason jars in the lantern.

I added a few sticks to the feathers, that I’ve had since we lived in Arkansas…almost 9 years ago.

I can always put them away and find them, now my car keys, that’s a different story :)

It all came together. Simple.

I’m ready for fall, the temps were great this morning.

Fall. One of my favorite seasons,

but then I think I say that about all of them.

What’s your favorite season?

    I love it…I have to say I have been stalking your blog every day (a couple of times a day some days) since you shared a peek of your mantel a while back! I love the blues & greens that you used…they are my most favorite colors right now & I wanted to go more of that direction with my fall decor, too. I have the same little owl…I couldn’t get him out of my mind after I saw him & HAD to have him!

    Very pretty!! I love how your style has evolved, Debbie!!!
    As I looked at your photos I could envision a few changes….take out the feathers and put in pussy willows and exchange to apples for eggs and you’d have a lovely spring mantel. You can thank me when you do a post on it in March :D Heehee!!!!
