I thought that I'd start on fall decorating today but when I woke up this morning, I thought, "Dang, when did WINTER show up?"
Seriously...It's COLD this morning! Did I miss fall completely? Are we setting some type of record for the coldest September?
So, rather than going outside at 7am on a Sunday morning and risking frostbite (okay, it's really 55 outside but to me, that's COLD!)
I decided to look through last year's photos for a little inspiration.
I think that I may have been a little burlap happy...
Come to think of it, I still am! (Yes, there WILL be a burlap wreath tutorial this week. I promise!)
My family room mantel. Love the basket. Love the wreath. The mantle, not my favorite.
This was my favorite.
My first attempt at an "almost all white" mantel.
Plenty of vintage: sheet music, lace, linens, and silver.
natural elements: pine cones, acorns and grapevine spheres.
pumpkins in Non-Traditional white, ivory and metallic.
Believe it or not, this mantel made it through Halloween and Thanksgiving!
That's probably some kind of record. At least at my house. Maybe I should call the Guinness Book of World Records.
Do you think that they have a category for
The longest time a mantel
vignette was left in place by a chronic DIY'er?!
It could happen. Yep, I could be in the Guinness book.
For a mantel. With a burlap wreath.
Okay, maybe not. But there might be a category for putting Christmas decorations up in October.
If there is, I think that I could have that one locked up!
