I finally got around to updating my mantel today.
The beachy-shell theme wasn’t really working for me
on this brisk October day!
I hung a round mirror that has been sitting around here
for the past few months.
I worked with the black from the mirror
and dove into the typical Halloween black and orange.
By the time I took the pictures,
the sun was no longer brightening the room
so I really needed to turn on the recessed lighting above.
The lighting made things look even more orange.
This little wooden sign
is from my neighborhood “spook basket” from last Halloween.
I hope I get some more fun treats this year!
And here is a shot without the light on.
Maybe I should have taken them all like this!
Who knows if the mantel will stay this way.
this is what my fall mantel looked like…
It took me three tries to get to this.
See the other two HERE.
And once again, my 2012 mantel…
I think I like the 2011 one better.
This one will have to grow on me.
So there’s one thing I can cross off my list.
