Fall Mantel

This time of year is always a little bitter sweet for me.  I love Fall, I really do, but I know that just around the corner will be a bitter cold winter. So I try to embrace it as much as I can.

In order to get me in the mood, I did a little Fall decorating in the house.  Just a little.



I have two fireplaces on my main floor, but only one with a mantel. This is the one in the dining room.

Oh look,  I replaced the dining room fixture.  I found that one at Goodwill (of course I did) for $7.00.  It's not what I envision in the space but it's better than what we had in there.




For my little update I used things I already had.

The mirror lived in my old living room  for awhile.

The wooden vases, I've had forever. 

The candle holder was a gift from BFF many birthdays ago.


The little brass vase was a Goodwill score for a $1.00 with some random flowers and feathers I had in my stash.
That bowl was a Goodwill score from yesterday.  It was $2.00! On the bottom it says Burled Maple. I've seen bowls like this at Homesense for $30.  It screams Fall to me for some reason.


Here is a close up.

Isn't it pretty?

And a final shot of the mantel again.


Using things I already had and spent $3.00 at Goodwill, and I like my Fall update.

So are you a Fall person? Do you embrace or deal with it? Any Fall decorating going on at your house?
