Fall Mantel Before and After

Hi everyone,
I've been slow posting this past couple of weeks. 
Hubby and I attended our son's wedding in September 
and took a little vacation to where my father was born in 1917.
We stopped in Laughlin Nev. and then we drove to
All I can say is that the experience was a hoot.
Before I left for our trip, I did my fall decorating. 
I bought new pillows for the sofa and 
decorated the mantel for fall.
This summer was so busy I didn't have a chance to 
share my summer mantel.  I love my plates and birds.
Now it's time for fall, and I love this year's look.
I finally found some pumpkin plates at TJMaxx.
I wanted to keep the mantel simple.  The orange 
and different shades of autumn colors enhance
the color my brick fireplace. 
Decorating my mantel is always a joy.  I love the 
beautiful velvet pumpkin. Soft and colorful
is perfect for my simple look.
Last year I bought the jar jewelry for my mason jars.
I stored them away in my stash and this year I 
fluffed them up a bit and sat them on the mantel.

October is going to be a busy one for this old lady.
Next week I will be entertaining my church
Altar Guild for tea and my sweet sister
is coming for a visit too. Sister Time.
Thank you for visiting.
