Treasure Hunt Thursday # 74 & Highlights

Silly silly me! All day today I was thinking it was Tuesday. It did not dawn on me till this evening when I was thinking about what to feature for THT Highlights that today was actually Wednesday and I missed posting the party this morning!:0 Sorry y'all!

Without further ado here are the highlights from last weeks party!:)
Beaux Reeves shared with us her take on antlers. I have to say I am not an antler fan well at least I wasn't till now. I LOVE how she displayed hers and I am also loving the pop of blue in her fall mantle. It is not normally a color you think of when you think fall but it so works!
Common Ground shared their beautiful pumpkin centerpiece. Debbie always blows me away with her beautiful decorating and this is no exception. 

Our Prairie Home shared this simple card catalog make over that has a HUGE impact! Laura did a great job and now I wish I had one.

Red Hen Home out did herself with this beyond amazing post card coffee table! I so need to figure out how to do amazing work like this.

As always thank you to all who partied last week! I am so truly honored to have such talent partying at my place! If you were featured please feel free to grab the "I've Been Featured" button!:) I have the newly updated button with html code on my sidebar! 

 What would be a HUGE help and encourage more comments not just from me but others as well would be for everybody to take off their required verification codes for leaving a comment. This seems to take just a few seconds of time but when you have to do it on 30 or more blogs it takes up a TON of time. Last week most everybody had turned off their Word Verification which made it so much easier for me to stop by everybody's links! Thank you!

READ THE RULES PLEASE!:)
Now on to this weeks party! 
As with all parties there are the normal rules. You must link back to From My Front Porch To Yours in your THT POST. Just common courtesy. If ya don't link back ya don't get to party. Only link up to your Treasure Hunt Thursday post and NOT your blog homepage. Please No advertising and PLEASE NO MORE than 3 links from the SAME party goer. Also NO MORE linking up to your own link parties. I am seeing more and more link ups of just people promoting their own linky parties. I know it takes time to go back and make a separate post to join the party but it is just the polite thing to do. If you find your post deleted it is not because I am a meany, I just have to make sure the rules are being followed. You can save some of your posts for the following weeks party!Please only link up new posts and not posts that you linked up the week before.Also be sure to visit at least the link before you and after you to just say Hi! It makes partying all the more fun! If you are new around here I would love it if ya become a follower!:)

Fall Mantel Decorating Thru the Years

This week I have decided it is time to start pulling out all my fall decorations. The weather has starting cooling off and I have been seeing some fabulous inspirations thru out blogland.

Today I wanted to share some of our previous fall mantles. It is always fun to see how we change things up year after year.
This is our mantle back in 2008 when we were living in Baton Rouge. It was before I knew that the flash on your camera was a big no no because it washes out your pics.

In 2009 we moved back to Tx and I did not decorate for fall. I was more concerned about painting the walls and what not.
Here is our mantle in 2010. I had already painted the mantle itself.
It was before we ripped out the flooring and granite tiles.
2011 I went a little crazy The Hubster said. 
It is one of my favorite mantles thus far. Now I am brainstorming to see what I can come up with this year. I am still hoping The Hubster will give in and let me change up that mirror!

Do you change your mantle up every year or does it stay the same?

Linking up to the following link parties:
Metamorphosis Mondays
Mop It Up Mondays
