Fall Mantle

Hello Friends!

I thought I would share my fall mantle with you this morning..

To create my fall mantle I used items I already had in the house in a different way.
I wanted to keep my mantle clean, simple and add some warmth to give it that fall feeling.

The three baskets were purchased from different places, the top one only cost a few dollars at a garage sale.
I love the way the three of them look stacked on top of each other.
I'm also loving the way the weathered wood frame looks against the white brick and I'm not the artist behind this chalkboard masterpiece.
I have my friend Dalsu to thank!
Thank you Dalsu!

It was so important to me when creating my fall mantle that I did something my kids would love too, and they do!
They love pointing to the characters on the chalkboard and telling me their names.
Together as a family we love to watch the Charlie Brown holiday classics.

The amber glass bottle is new and it's exactly what I needed to bring some warmth to my mantle.

If you missed my fireplace makeover go here.

Enjoy your day and thanks for visiting!

until next time,
