Fall Mantel 2011

I took advantage of the cold and rainy weather last weekend and dug into my fall decorations. I really need to get them reorganized once I get the Halloween stuff out because fall, Halloween and Thanksgiving are all jumbled together in plastic boxes in the attic and it's not working for me. I use the fall decorations the entire season but I add and subtract the Halloween and Thanksgiving decorations in October and November.

I seem to have an unintentional owl theme going on. That wasn't at all planned, and I had completely forgotten about the white ceramic owl until I opened the box of decorations. The stuffed owl is from HomeGoods this year. I could not resist him when I saw him so he had to come home with me. The natural textured green and brown pumpkin is also from HomeGoods, but everything else is from previous seasons. I love adding books to the mantelscape. They add interest and I can play with the heights of the decorations while still be careful not to block the television!

Things will be moved around once the Halloween stuff comes out in a week or two. Elizabeth is already super excited about Halloween.

I'll hopefully remember to take some pictures of the front stoop in the daylight tomorrow so I can post about our fall curb appeal tomorrow. No promises.
