Fall Mantel, a Winner, and an {in}Mercy Update

Happy Wednesday… the first of fall!  I have to confess, I was uber-ready to welcome fall this year by getting my decorating on.  Much as I loved my summer mantel with its killer burlap flag bunting, I am ready to think crisp mornings, breezy leaf-drifting days, and pumpkins!

Fall Mantel

And, oo la la, I love it so!

The leaves haven’t begun changing yet here, but I’m loving the Japanese Maple clippings in my demijohns.  It will be fun to refresh with some deep reddish purple ones when the leaf turning finally begins.

And now, I’ll just hush, and let you enjoy…

I hope you are having a wonderful and very blessed week!!

  4. The mantel is really pretty. I love the colors and textures of fall. I just put out my scarecrows, pumpkins and mums. I got a few owl accents for the inside and some fantastic scented pinecones.
