Fall Mantel 2014

Well Hello!
 
I'm still here, but it has been a while!
 
Most of you know where to find me these days...Facebook! I will still post my seasonal décor here, but I'm so busy with my online business and Facebook that I don't have time to do as many blog posts as I used to do. I will be posting the rest of my fall and Christmas décor here soon so be sure and check back!
 
I just finished my fall mantel over the weekend. I hot glued a black wooden B to a burlap covered piece of cardboard and framed it. It was an easy project. I made the arrangements on each side along with the piece in the middle. I used sunflowers, pumpkins, natural sticks and moss balls. I especially love the little moss balls coming out of the arrangements.
 
 
Some of you might notice the new curtains. I know a lot of you loved the red and gold silk checked ones and I did too, but they had to go! I had them for 10 years and they were faded and had holes in them. I found these on ATGstores.com and love them! They are called Mirage stripe if you are interested. They are very well made. Also, the wooden lanterns are from Kirkland's.
 

 I added some fall décor to my coffee table along with fall pillows from Kohl's and an owl pillow from Pier 1 Imports I purchased last year.
 
Happy Fall Ya'll!
