It is sweater weather. It is the time for art festivals & craft shows. It is when I met my husband. But let me not fool you either...my birthday is in October!
I thought I would celebrate the incoming change of seasons with a change in my mantel.
I kept with my love of neutrals, naturals, candlelight, and family.
I NEVER take down my Roman Holiday gift. My husband gave this to me on our 2nd Christmas together. It documented our honeymoon in Rome over the Christmas break we got married. It is one of my most cherished treasures.
I already had the glass vases, the pinecones both glittery & not, and the raffia. Oh how raffia makes me swoon.
The pinecone wreath is from a clearance at Hobby Lobby from 4 years ago. Poor little pinecones were falling off by the numbers. So I glued some of the glitter cones within her to make her more cheerful and holiday.
And this is my FAVORITE picture of Thurgood that was taken in the fall. It is not as over exposed as it looks. Argh...I need a few more practice shots, but I wanted to showcase this today. :)
Hope you find it as delightful as I do!
I was cleaning out one (key word is ONE) of my junk drawers & found this lovely note that was given to me from a former student before the holiday break. I felt it that it would bring another element to my mantel. I already had the frame which I heart as is...but the saying speaks to me.
So here is what my mantal looks like tonight:
PS I am linky to the Nester Fantal Party
