Cooler temps

The temperatures here are finally cooler - so I was in the mood for fall decorating. Every season my mantle gets decorated & there are a few new items added this year. ALWAYS sale/clearance items are added. My husband won a gift certificate to a furniture store here at a golf tournament, so we picked out 2 lanterns that have the pottery barn look I love so much. The smaller one is covered up mostly by a scarecrow who has seen better days. He has been here for at least 6 yrs., and was on a stand, but it fell apart, and when this happens, I repurpose and don't toss them out. He is propped up against the 2 lanterns. Also added the wire mesh and sunflower picks to the largest lantern.
Here is a closer pic - ugh looks like my orange pumpkin needs to be turned a bit. oops! It still has a few yrs., left in it. ;) Every year I look for trees to do an owl/tree mantle for Oct., but the trees are either too glittery or kiddy looking.



Your fall mantle is lovely, the lanterns look so nice among the pumpkins. Each year I look for end of the season sales and stock up for the next year. I have some new things to bring out this year.

Your mantle is so cute Debbie! The fall pillows came from Kohls online. They were on sale for around $13 each.

Thank you! Kristen


Great decorations! I love how you decorate that little area in your house! Just think, Christmas is right around the corner!
