Our Mantel was Craving more Fall Colors

Our beautiful, oak tree is a little more rust, this year, than it's occasional, magnificent, deep red. But, even on this gloomy, fall day it still screams..."look at me!"

I really like our white fireplace decor but, I've been craving more of the traditional, fall color scheme.

This was it's first look.

Since, I had some leftover, floral picks, from last weeks dinner party, I decided to tuck them into the existing mantel design and move a few props, from around the room, to give me that warm and cozy autumn feel.

This is how it looks, now!

My, very special, little mice!

And here's my favorite scarf in use again!
I think it needs a bed of leaves, but it's, tomorrow is another day.

Managed to spot some bittersweet right out in our driveway. I think it works, okay, as a "filler."  

Hope you like the addition of color as much as I do...I'm really happy, now!

Love, Hugs and Kisses,

Love the jewelry draped on the pumpkins and the burlap garland twined around between.
