Hi everyone! I took out my three boxes of fall decorations today. I’m so glad I organized all that stuff during the summer! Anyway, I’m playing around with my fireplace mantel in the living room today. I took a look at what I’ve done in the past. Which is a good idea. Then you know what works and doesn’t, what you liked what you didn’t like so much.

Here’s a fall banner I made last year. The following photos are all before I painted this mantel white.
In 2007 I piled all sorts of faux fruits and pumpkins on my mantel…I really like the way that looks!
This year I wanted to find an old fallish picture at the thriftstore and use that on my mantel. I didn’t find exactly what I was looking for. Of course, a few weeks ago I remember seeing such a picture but I didn’t have the idea to use one then! Of course!
Then I just reused what I already had. You’ll recognize things from previous posts. Those red containers that the apple topiaries are in are just candlestick holders that I found at the thrift store long ago!
I’m not sure I’m going to keep it this way. I may take things off or I may add more stuff! Maybe larger pumpkins on the tall red candlesticks?
If I find just the picture I’m thinking of, then I will probably change it a bit!
So I did this in the morning than in the afternoon we went to see “GI Joe” which was a a fun movie if you like action flicks (which I do)! Tomorrow I’m planning on spending the day in my jammies doing absolutely nothing! I went to the library and got some movies and books. It’ll just be my daughter and me tomorrow so dinner will be something I have frozen and reheated. I plan on just relaxing all day! I’m having a lovely weekend so far and I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend too!
