|Even though I haven't had a fire yet, I finally went ahead and decorated my mantel! Green glass ware and Indian corn from the Goodwill, berry/ pumpkin sprig and mini pumpkins from Walmart and leaf garland from Joanns. I like the garland because it's so full. I'm thinking about putting a bit of frosty glitter on it but I'm not sure. (Of course I've changed the mantel since snapping this pic!)|
|It looks so pretty with the twinkle lights and candles lit! It's so hard to get a good pic with the mirror there but I'll keep trying!|
Are you wondering why I haven't used the fireplace yet? I'm making myself wait until the room is all re-done! This is going to be my spa/nature room so I'm totally redoing it! I've been gathering ideas on pinterest and started a board I'm calling Forrest Chic. I'm also not sure which wall the fireplace will be on so everything has to be juuuust right (and cold) until I can use it! I'm funny that way. I like to wait on good things- savor the newness.
My eldest son took me on an antique buying trip for a belated birthday gift! If you're not with me on facebook, I'll be showing my finds here soon.
Hope you're all having a happy fall! I'm feeling happier than I have in a long while and THAT'S a good thing!
