Decorating the fall mantel today! I’m super excited to finally be able to decorate a MANTEL/MANTLE? Even though the fireplace is not completely finished I did manage to get the mantel UP and it’s making me smile.! I PROMISE to show you the entire thing SOON my dears! But it’s very much like me to get sidetracked!:0)


I kept things super simple. Used my collection of pumpkins from last year…most I got right before Thanksgiving on clearance:0) You know that trick don’t cha???


Vase full of fall foliage from Joann’s and a Goodwill vase I got for 2.00

  5. Super cute! How genius to use plain old BEANS up there. Everything looks great!

    Oh, and a manTLE is something you wear – like a coat. A mantle of snow on the ground, the mantle is the outside layer of the Earth, etc. A manTEL is the thing over your fireplace. 🙂

  6. Now typically I do not enjoy fall mantels. But. I do believe you have changed my mind! This is one of the prettiest fall mantels I’ve ever seen. You did a beautiful job & like everyone else, I love the unique, beautimous paper flowers! 🙂
