I thought it was about time that I decorate my mantel for fall! This year I pulled some colorful pieces I had around my house…
The first picture I took came out a little dark because it has been so cloudy lately!
Then I turned on the light above the fireplace and this is what I came up with. Suddenly, I was not happy with the coloring on the fruit picture. But I just decided to go with it!
The lighting just throws everything off.
What was I thinking?
You might recognize those black candlesticks again! I have decided to just call October
the “31 days of Black Candlesticks Month!”
I had to throw in some apples from our recent apple picking adventure!
You know, the colors really look too bright with the light on. I should have just left it off for the pictures.
I would like to say that I will just retake the pictures tomorrow when the lighting is better. And when I find a different picture with better coloring.
But it no longer looks this way. I might redo it again next week. I thought I would share it with you anyway just for fun!
I think you can see the direction I was heading in. But sometimes you just can’t find the right things around the house. Maybe I am being too picky, but it is not exactly how I envisioned it. I guess decorating can be a lot of trial and error!
Do post something even after you tear it down?
