Fireplace Mantel

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!
