Fall Mantle

Fall is in the air in West Tennessee.  We have had a very mild summer and it is shaping up to be a beautiful fall.  It is so nice to have a little chill in the air in the mornings and see pumpkins for sale at the farmer's market.  I have been working on a little decorating in my own home, starting with my mantle.

When we moved into our house a few years ago, we hung our TV over the mantle, but didn't want to go to the expense of having it wired since it was a working fireplace.  Having the TV there works best for the room, but the cords were so ugly.  I started trying to come up with decorations that hide the cords.  I change it with the seasons.

The left side has a silver tray painted with chalk paint.  The quote is from William Cullen Bryant. I added a few magnets I made with some scrapbook embellishments.  I used a brass candle stick with a small ceramic pumpkin and some dried hydrangeas.

I still used the copper piece from Spring for the backdrop on the right side.  I filled the hurricane globe with small pumpkins.  I love these little pumpkins.  The small bouquet came from Hobby Lobby.  
I plan on adding a banner or leaves to the twine string, but our leaves haven't changed enough yet.  

I am giving away a Poe - Halloween pillow this month on my Facebook page.  Just like my page at for a chance to win.  Thanks for checking it out.  I hope you are having a good fall in your little corner of the earth.
