Well my friends....it is below 90 degrees here today!!!!! It is finally going to feel like fall this week...temps in the mid 70's, a few leaves starting to fall, a little drizzle today but that is o.k. We have been blessed with wonderful rainfall this summer but I tell you....it has been sooooo hot for such a long time that most everyone around here is ready for a change of seasons.
So I told you I'd share my fall mantels with you and I thought we would start in the kitchen. Now I know that I have told y'all many times over the years about these few areas in my house....but it seems that most of my decorating happens in these places. So you all just pretend you have never seen it before....o.k.?
This mantel is one I purchased at our local antique mall from some great pickers /friends of mine. I just loved the color...weathered gray with a touch of blue. I hung that window frame over it 5 years ago and it is still there because well...I like it and it makes a nice backdrop for wreaths, baskets or nothing for that matter!
My starting point was my white platter that I love plus a few other ceramic pieces that were given to me by my Momma.
I used some artificial gourds, some real pumpkins, lil' pots, antlers, hydrangea and dried okra from the garden.
I placed some of my dried gourds in the ceramic pieces and added some natural looking stems to the vase.
A sweet little light that stays on all the time and a touch of wheat warm up the spot.
I do love little Baby Boo pumpkins...
My simple "FALL" banner that I use from year to year...
My burlap covered chair with an orange pillow that I already had....in my ever growing pillow stash. I do believe I must have an addiction to pillows ;-)
This kind of gives you an idea how it plays into the den....and....
...in relation to the rest of the kitchen!.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope that you all have a wonderful "fall-ish" week!
Enjoy the cool down and God Bless You!
