My Fall Mantel

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend — the FIRST weekend of fall!  I’m feeling it now… cool breezes, the angle of the sun has changed a bit, a handful of leaves beginning to change (and fall).  I even picked up a couple of (real) pumpkins at WalMart yesterday! Before I get to my fall mantel, I have to crow a bit about my DIY Mirrored Pumpkin feature over at Crafty Scrappy Happy’s Happy Hour Features!   Go check it out and check out all the other awesome fall inspiration she’s highlighting!

Now, let’s get to it… my fall mantel!

You might see some familiar pieces here, like my maple leaf pumpkin!  I can honestly say, I don’t think I’ve ever had quite so many pumpkins on a mantel before.  But once I started scattering them and popping them on top of things, I couldn’t seem to stop. 🙂

I like the layers and subtle color (lots of neutral!)…

but don’t be surprised if it changes over the next few weeks.  I’m a perpetual tweaker!

I had a great weekend and got lots of projects done that I’ll be sharing over the next couple of weeks.  My family has a SUPER busy month of October and it all starts NEXT weekend, so I’ll do my best to post regularly during that time, but please forgive me if I end up posting a little less frequently… such is life, right?

Happy Monday, friends… what did you work on this weekend?

  10. Come help mine. Instead of adding stuff for Fall I’ve taken stuff off to use other places. It’s going backwards and bare.

  18. Love the layered look of your mantel and that mirror is gorgeous!

  19. Your mantel is beautiful! I have those same sconces and love them. Although I haven’t put them up in our current home yet, because we’ve been doing too much construction to decorate. 🙂
    Hopefully soon!

  20. I adore your mantle pretty girl. You have such great style! I have to admit I am more than a little jealous of your beautiful mantle…. I don’t have one to decorate this year :o( but I am considering printing out a photo of yours so that I can enjoy it like it is in my living room… how about that?! :o) Hope you are having a good night sweet friend!
