My Autumn Mantle


When I dress my mantle I really like to use items from around my home. Partly because of the challenge of coming up with a creative display this way, but more impotantly because it is definitely more cost effective for the household budget. So for example the lamps I had in my entryway on the sideboard and the rooster picture was
hanging in my kitchen. The ceramic pumpkins are part of a collection I have been adding to over the years. The metal pitcher I bought when we first moved to Rosemary Lane and up to now has been living in Grace's room, and the pretty harvest wreath I picked up at TJ Maxx last fall. The silver plated candle holders are from Towle and believe it or not I found them about 7 years ago at a flea market for only $10, for both!











I am really liking the idea of the lamps on the mantle...it's provides such pretty illumination for my mantle display.

Ahh...now we just to wait for those cool fall evenings to enjoy a roaring fire while admiring our lovely mantle.

Have a wonderful day!!

  6. I love your mantle and the colors. I, too, am looking forward to decorating for Fall but having problems pulling out the decorations when it is 91 degrees outside. I hope for cooler temps very soon!

  9. Your Autumn mantle could not have come at a better time, since I'm beginning to turn my mind to Fall, albeit a little unwillingly. I love summer! But your mantle is wonderful and brings out the best of the Fall season! Great job!
