I decorated my mantle and built ins last weekend, after I painted the backs
of the built ins. I was inspired by so many 'unpredictable' fall decorated mantles,
I wanted to do my mantle over.
I just had to do it. Mr. hasn't noticed yet, he already
thinks I am nuts, so who cares!
I did it a couple times, not sure which one I liked. I started with some of my ironstone pottery collection.
I wanted a more, white, Greek blue (pumpkins) and a touch of green.
I just kept moving stuff, taking away then adding back.
I love my shed antlers, and the grasses are from my landscaping.
I pulled out a white platter I use at Thanksgiving, it is covered in leaves.
I think I like this one the best. I put just a few sprigs of greenery in and took out the platter.
Is it better? I think so!
I also did my front porch. I have a local farmers market I go to weekly & got ALL these
pumpkins for $20!
They even had an amazing price of $3.99 on the fall mums.
The Boston Fern was $14 & it is HUGE!
My kids wanted to decorate the front door. Isn't it PRETTY??? :o)
Just for a few minutes my Wyatt stopped moving long enough to fall asleep
on me.That is my favorite and I do not get that any
more having no babies!
My kids are off to the grandparents for the weekend,
