Fall Mantel Mantle Also Fantel

how to decorate your mantel mantle for fall

I’m still tweaking our mantle.  But who am I kidding, I’m always tweaking.  Our corner farmer’s market doesn’t have the good, warty, muted colored pumpkins and gourds yet so I’m using what I can find around the house which consists of a few stripped books, weeds from the yard, a stick and some feathers.  Plus […]
