Autumn Mantel

I had fun last week getting the mantel decked out for autumn!  {My favorite season}

Other than the pumpkins from our trip to the patch—-everything else I found around the house. The banner….I made that. {It will be in my etsy shop really soon.  You know, the empty shop on the corner that is longing for wonderful items to be added to it. Yeah, that one.}  Soon, very soon—wonderful things will be appearing there!

The vintage book bundles that we made will be coming out soon—because we LOVE fires in our fireplace.  But, around here it is way too hot to have fires quite yet.  We are still in the 90’s. ugh.  But as soon as that temp drops—the books are out and the fire is in!

This is the first autumn that we have had a mantel…..and I’ve had so much fun with it! Do you have a special spot in your home that you have fun changing out for the seasons?

  1. Love your mantel 🙂 The color scheme looks so homey and cozy – I saw someone else posted that they turned their furnace on – we’re sweating here too, but your mantel makes me wish for cooler days that much more. Beautiful job!

  2. What a pretty, rustic mantle. I really like the aged paint on the mantle and the books in the fireplace. Who am I kidding, I love all of it! I came from Passionately Artistic.

  3. Beautiful! Love, love the book bundles! Everything looks so great together! Fall is really one of the best times of the year..right? thanks for the inspiration!
    Have a wonderful week!


    • Thanks, Jessica—-we’re going to have to find something else fun to do with all those bundles during the winter–so we can enjoy nice, cozy fires! 🙂

  4. Oh wow! That is just the most amazing mantle I’ve seen! I love everything you did! The only thing that makes me sad is that I don’t have a mantle and I’m totally jealous now! Coming over from Transformation Thursday!


  5. Absolutely incredible! The book bundles in the fireplace are so fantastic and unique….pretty sure you are starting a trend there. 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing your talent and creativity with us at Inspiration Friday this week!

  6. Soo charming Daune!! I love how you have styled your mantel! I have thought about doing the books inside the fireplace before too – yours look so fabulous! Thanks for linking up!
