Welcome to our Fall into Autumn series.
Today I am sharing our Fall Mantel 2013.
For the next several weeks we will be sharing All things Fall and we are very excited for the upcoming season.
We hope to inspire.
Looking back and reflecting of mantels gone by, I sorta chuckled.
I mean sometimes, I wonder what I was thinking.
It’s kinda like hairstyles you always look back and say,
and I thought that was cute!
Today, I am sharing our 2013 Fall mantel.
I kept it pretty simple and only added a few touches of Fall to the family room so far.
and of all the simple Fall decor, this little faux carved pumpkin is my favorite of all!
I bought a few new things this year at Home goods, one of my favorite places. Their prices are awesome, and their decor is fabulous, imo.
It is the first time in a few years since I have bought anything new for Fall.
I have at least 10 bins of Fall decor that I have collected and made throughout the years.
It was time for a some new things.
I love my owl pillows.
They were I believe $14.99 a piece. Bargoon!
Added some faux flowers and pumpkins to the urns.
paired up with my vintage books that I always have out on the mantel.
The little owls I saw when I was in the check out line.
Two went in my cart and those were only $4.99 a piece. They had all different colors too.
Sunflower swag was $12.99 and the rustic swag of twigs I have had for years.
The wreath, I have also had for years. I think I bought that at Walmart.
That too has the sunflowers so it ties in nicely with the swag.
I think the Fall decor is really looking good with my Painted fireplace makeover that I did last year.
The pumpkin is sitting on top of an old trunk
that I redid a few years back with Annie sloan chalk paint, and burlaped the top.
The rug is new and that we bought on ebay.
It is a pottery barn rug that we scored for less than 50% off, brand new.
They do not sell it this year in the catalog.
this is an arial view from upstairs.
this rug is also larger than our last one. It has every color that is in our home.
It is just perfect!
Thanks for stopping by today for our Fall series.
