November has certainly slipped up on me. Usually I am through decorating for fall by the end of Labor Day weekend, but that didn’t happen this year and I find myself still adding a few touches of fall to my home. Except for a couple of items, I used stuff I had on hand.
This vignette is in the foyer. The only new item is the artwork which was a bargain at Old Time Pottery for about $8.00.
I always agonize on how to decorate the mantel but am pleased with how it turned out this year…an explosion of fall colors. The only new purchase was a small amber colored bottle that I bought at a garage sale last weekend for fifty cents. The gold lights under the sheer fabric make the entire mantel glimmer.
On the sideboard I placed gold lights under gold sparkly mesh and added garland on top.
Only one half of my hearth was picture worthy. The other half is still a work in progress. Accent back lighting behind the glass vase makes the
fake faux sunflowers come alive. The stained glass pumpkin was an after Thanksgiving bargain at Cracker Barrel a few years ago.
Thanks for visiting. It thrills me when you stop by. I hope you will come again.
