Welcoming Fall Mantel 2013

Fall Mantle
Yesterday was the first day of Fall. Anybody else as excited as I am about the lower temps and cool breezes? It is quite a welcoming change here in Texas that is for sure. With Fall upon us I decided to get cracking on bringing Fall into our home and the first place I started was our living room.
Fall Mantle
Our living room recently got a makeover so that called for a different route on the Fall decor this year. Simplicity called out to me unlike years past. You can click here and here to see some of my previous fall mantles.
Fall Chalk Board
My first attempt at free handing a chalk board and boy let me tell ya it took many tries. I know it still looks a little wonky but eventually I will get the hang of straight lines!;)




We just  love our little hooty owl.
The Hubster thought that I had lost my mind when he saw me adding book pages to the t.v. armoire. I had to tell him not to worry. They are not permanent.


Living Room Fall Decorations
Certainly a change from previous years but I am really liking it. Next up will be the dining room.

  4. Everything looks so nice. Love that little beige colored lamp on the table. So shabby chic!
    The temps have cooled here in Texas, it's felt wonderful the last couple of mornings for sure.
    I'm a candle lover also, I just don't think a girl can have too many of them. Never tried the ones that you're writing about so thanks for the great give-a-way. Crossing my fingers to win.
