Fall-lious Mantle

Dear Autumn,

I love your beautiful colors, the heavenly smells of apple & cinnamon and pumpkin. The carmel apples, candy corn, bowls of soups and chili. The cool crisp days and nights. Wait STOP!
Of course I forgot I live in Florida! No cool crisp days and nights ! Darn It!,  at least not until November.. Ok.. I can dream.. but onto my fall mantle. I can pretend to have beautiful fall colors, like the leaves that are trailing down the side of my wood and iron centerpiece. Among those leaves are flowers in a warm shade of pumpkin, green, pine cones, feathers in zebra stripe lime green & orange, and a jute ribbon runs through out. Subway art,  a gorgeous owl, pumpkins and a large initial , completes the look on top. Underneath grapevine garland is mount to finish my fall-ish look.!!
Now if I could just get the weather to cooperate and cool off....

Over all look

I will be back on the 27th for Easy Fall Decor with Sarah.

Until then,



  1. Wow! A lot to take in at first glance, second glance, third glance. Your mantle is a veritable feast for one's eyes. I love your centerpiece with the owl - it's seasonal and has a hint of mystery and intrigue too, so will be perfect for Hallow E'en. I'm visiting from the linky party at Centsational Girl.

  2. Love this!!! You are so talented!!!
