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…

    I would have voted for #1 or #3; they are both very pretty!

    I love them all and no, I haven't thought about decorating yet! I guess halloween stuff will go up in less than a month!

    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.

    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.

    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,LoiTone on Tone

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