2012 Fall Mantle

I finally stopped dragging my feet and was able to get my fall decorating completed. I was thinking the outside was going to be my first reveal but rain moved in this afternoon and I didn't get out there soon enough to take pics before hand. I did however get the inside pics done in time.
I changed things up from last year. I pulled out my iron votive holder which I have used on the mantle before. 
Everything I already owned which was a great thing. I normally have to go out and buy a few things. Well I did buy a few things but not for the mantle!;) This finial I purchased back in July when we went to Ga to see the fam. I got it at the Pottery Barn Outlet and had not used them till now.
Addition of little pumpkins here and there.  
I decorated the lantern the same as last year.  
I changed this corner up just a tad with a larger pumpkin.
I brought out my beloved pumpkin pillow for the chair. 
I thought that this picture turned out really pretty. 
There ya have it! My fall mantle for 2012! Yes, I had to turn the fireplace on to get the full effect even though at the time it was 85 if not hotter outside.

You can see my previous fall mantles here in case you missed that post. Which one is your favorite?

You can view our dining room all decked out for fall here.

Treasure Hunt Thursday #75 & Highlights

This week has been filled with me finally getting in the fall decorating mood. I am not done yet but at least I am getting there. Posts to come soon!:)

In between I have been by to visit all the wonderful links from last weeks party and I can't thank you enough for partying here every week! I didn't get a chance to leave comments on all though because I was on my iPad and it is not as easy to leave comments on there especially when it is not a blogger blog and I have to enter in a bunch of info to leave the comment. 

Vanessa made this awesome jute pumpkin over At The Picket Fence.

Paul & Cathy from One Creative Couple shared their French Typography table.

The gals over at Be Book Bound told us how to make these yummy pumpkin pancakes and pumpkin spice syrup! Delicious!

Kristie over at Market Nine showed us how she is pulling together the sitting area in her master bedroom.

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!

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!:)

Happy Fall Y'all!

I can not believe that is officially fall! I am so ready for the cooler temps. We had some but over the weekend temps crept back up to 94. Not so fallish. I admit I have been dragging my feet BIG time on the fall decorating. I tried really hard this past week to get in the mood but it just was not happening. I went in my decor closet turned the light on, stared for 5 minutes, and then turned the light back off and walked out. I was just not feeling it and I know I am wayyyyyy behind everybody else. 
Or at least I was.
Yesterday we made our monthly pilgrimage to Costco and look what they had! Every year they have these huge mums but every year I leave them behind. This year it was just what I needed to get me in the fall mood.
Even though the heat and humidity returned over the weekend I started pulling the outside decor together. 
I am not quite done yet but I should be by Tuesday!

Hope everybody had a fabulous weekend! Sorry I have not been very inspiring lately!:(
