Fall Mantel!






Love, love fall and of course the decorating that goes along with it. I have two mantels, but this one featured has fake logs with a light in it. Hubby and I found it in pieces and put it back together. I started out with a piece of bronze material for the base and just started adding the lamp in the middle, then just laying and poking flowers and ribbon. The pheasants started out white and I painted them. Also the pears were painted. The tapestry was a treasure from a goodwill. I love grapes so they always have to be added somewhere. Oh, I also put tassels on the end of the rod. Of course there always have to be candles for that wonderful fall scents. Fall is such a wonderful time to be thankful for all our many blessings. Thank you for visiting!
