Fall Mantle Redo........

I wasn't really happy after I looked at my Mantle for awhile.  I wanted to keep it simple but it was just to plain and  not enough color, color is the best part of fall!  I changed a few things and like it much better now, hope you do too!

Here is a peek



This is how it started out,
ugh, plain jane!


Then it went to this, not enough


Still not happy, so then it went to this


Much happier now, still pretty simple but a lot more color!

Till next time......

Love it! I did the same thing this weekend...kept looking at my mantle thinking it was all wrong. Much better now after some tweaking. I mean, a perfect mantle is important (wink).

Yes--much more prettier and looks like fall! I agree; I love simple whites and all; but when it comes to fall deco--give me a little of that rustic orange color. Beautiful mantel!

Very pretty!! I love the window! You have such a nice balance of things on the mantel. I always have trouble with that, either putting too much or too little on the mantel. Your fall namtel is beautiful!

The finished product is wonderful! I love the leaf wreath. It brings it all together. Today my hubby told me my mantel had, "maybe too much bling" Too bad, so sad, it's staying. It'll be coming down in a few weeks anyway. lol!
