Fall Mantel 2011

Here goes.

You might recall last years mantel (fantel, if you will) it’s also seen here {squeel!} I had an idea to do something a little more glitzy this year and really work the glitter but, I’m on a tight spending freeze and had to work with what I had. Which is a lot of old books and broken frames. Oh, and three pumpkins. Yes three. Where the heck did the rest go? The pumpkin fairy must have stolen them.

So, it’s simple. Super simple and I liked it even more because there’s no orange. Don’t get me wrong I love me some orange for Halloween but since that’s a while away it’s nice to have something a little more subtle, but still looks warm and cozy.

It’s cozy right? Library chic.
Not to be confused with..Poor girl has nothing else to work with.

Hopefully I can get everything else out and find the missing pumpkins before it’s Halloweens turn to take over and I switch it all. :)

Not to mention figure out something cute for the shelving next to the giant ugly box smack dab in the middle of the wall. Wait, I mean giant ugly box full of fingerprints and smudges. Yeah, that one. Someone come clean for me while I sprinkle some fall around the house, will ya?

P.S! Check out the Michaels Ad on the blog right now! You can get yourself some white pumpkins just like the ones I used for 50% off..Woohoo! Click and print buddies, click and print.
