Our Fall Mantle 2013

Good Morning!

It’s another beautiful day today here in Tennessee :)

I finished our fall mantle yesterday and love it!

The wreath is and oldie but goodie. 

We have had this thing for YEARS and it was looking pretty sparse so I took a leaf swag I had and twisted and mixed it in to make it extra leafy and added some burlap ribbon.

(And with some help from Mr. Steve of course!)

I hung it over the mirror.

If you have been following me on Facebook you know I am currently addicted to these fabric swags lately and can’t make enough of them. 

So of course I had to make one for our Fall mantle.

I just removed the hydrangeas and replaced them with some artificial apples.

I also had this small wood black widow plaque that had a wire attached to it for hanging.

I removed the wire and nailed it right onto the box.

How cute is this?

I pulled this guy (rooster) out of my dining room.

And the fresh hydrangeas in the basket are from my backyard!

We just planted them this year and they are doing amazing!

Yippee!!

I picked up a bag of small pumpkins at the market and included a few as well.

Mixed in some more fruit and pumpkins.

Both artificial and real.

And scattered a few more pieces around the room as well.

The only thing I purchased was 3 artificial mini pumpkins @ .97 ea.

And this cute little owl for only $2.97.

Everything else we have accumulated over the last 30 years!

Happy Thursday :)
