Four Mantels for Fall

With the calendar flipped over to September,
I suddenly feel the urge to update my mantel for fall!

Although I have no idea
what I am doing with my mantel this year,
I thought I would recap some fall mantels from previous years...

  11. I like the 3rd one too! It's still too hot here in Florida, but I'm starting to do a little bit, only for blogging purposes. My girls are freaking out because I have a huge black spider on the wall and it is early September! Thanks for linking up to the DIY Sunday Showcase.

  12. I am loving the fall themes, what great inspiration! I can't wait - it's supposed to cool off where I am, but we're still in the mid-90's and I'm dying to wear sweaters. It's not working for me.

  13. I just discovered your blog after searching fall mantels. So many great looks! I like the leaf garland draped over the mirror. Thanks for the recap and inspirations.
    Cheers,

  15. I really noticed your use of black on these mantels and it made of the autumn colors pop. Thanks for the inspiration.
