Fall Mantel

I love decorating for the holidays.  I really do.  But I also get a strange satisfaction out of ripping it all down and putting up something else.
Well, I got to “ripping” ASAP and re-did my mantel.
I used the same idea as my Halloween mantel but just changed up the elements a little.

Harvest-y fall goodness.
I was excited to switch out my Halloween subway art board with my new fall one I made at our craft night!
And I love this store-bought garland I got a few years ago.
I can FEEL myself becoming more grateful already.  :)
PS A couple of people have wondered about my “window pane” there (hi cousin Angelica!)… it’s actually a cabinet door that I assume used to have glass in it.  My friend was throwing it away after they had put a kitchen in their basement!  What the?  Exactly.  So glad I was there to spot it, rescue it, and adopt it.  Keep an eye out, people!

    So incredibly lovely! It feel all cozy and homey through my screen! And I laughed at your ripping it all down description. What is it about the complete exhilaration of change? I dunno but I love it too! Thanks for always inspiring sweet friend!

    Keep an eye out, indeed! Great rescue! And I love what you say about feeling yourself becoming more grateful just by the act of decorating for Thanksgiving. I’d welcome you to come share this at my Thanksgiving party if you’re interested and have time. It’s my intention to help spread that attitude of gratitude! Either way, have a blessed holiday!

[…] 1) My Fall Mantel.  I love my old cabinet door I got out of a friend’s garbage (pride?  What pride?) and my fun subway art (for sale HERE!).  I’m going in a bit of a different direction this year and I can’t wait to see how it all comes together.  I do so love my last year’s mantle though.  It has a sort of bountiful feel, no?  ::sigh::  See entire post here.
