We have now had our mantel for a year…..I can’t believe that we’ve lived in our cottage for 17 years, and only had a mantel for 1! This mantel was a most gracious gift to us…and is over 200 years old! It was taken from a lovely antebellum home. We have had so much fun with it over the past year…..changing it with the seasons and making it right at home here!
This past weekend I loaded up the car with pumpkins and had a blast putting them everywhere! The mantel did not escape the pumpkin extravaganza.
Here’s a few pics of our mantel for this autumn…..
Heirloom pumpkins are my very favorite….this year I have found some really unusual ones at the pumpkin patch down the road from our cottage…..
Love these colorful leaves in a basket…..gorgeous color!
Can’t be Oak Cottage without lots of acorns! 😉
Does your home have a mantel? Do you enjoy decorating it and changing it around, or do you like to keep it pretty much the same throughout the year?
