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!

Hi Kristen. It's always so nice to see a post from you. Your mantel looks amazing. I love the huge B and the lanterns. The new curtains are beautiful too. I did love the old ones but a girl has to have a change every now and then. Great choice. :)

Kristen your new drapes are gorgeous! I really like the B frame as well. You should sell those. I would buy one from you for sure. Beautiful mantel and room. It has an elegance that I have always loved to see.

Great to see your post, Kristen! : ) Your mantel looks wonderful. I love how simple your monogram project was. The arrangements look wonderful ~ as they always do! Love your new curtains. You are right about loving the old ones, but it's always nice to have a change. I had no idea you had them for 10 years. I'll bet you are loving the new look.

I love the curtains and since you have a wonderful style of decorating, I wondered if you would give me your opinion on something I'm thinking for my living room windows. The trim around my windows are 3" wide and they are a warm classic oak color. I love the curtains you have and will probably order me some too. I was thinking of using a dark rod with dark rings like in the picture at the ATCstore.com site. I see you have white blinds and was considering using white blinds also. I see you are using a gold looking ring with a white ish rod. Do you think the white blinds will still look alright if I'm using the darker rod and rings? love, love, love that I found your blog.
