Decorating My Fall Mantel

Since I LOVE Fall so much, I try to milk out all the decorating I can. For instance, I've had a Pre-Fall Mantel, and Early-Fall Mantel, now I changed up to a "Fall Mantel"; yet to come will be the Late-Fall Mantel. I guess you could say that I love all the stages of Fall. So transitioning into the regular Fall mantel, I traded out the sunflowers for some faux hydrangeas and some dried ones along with some faux berry stems and leaves.

 I've been playing up the more muted colors and neutrals that I love, just adding in a few splashes of russets and oranges and golds.

So the perfect time of the year to add in a few pieces of my flea market finds Brown Transferware that I picked up for just a few dollars each. My Wolff Pottery tall vases have become a fixture here. They are so easy to change out seasonally, and stacked on old books, they give the height that this huge mantel and ceiling need. Things can get lost here...

My little Tiger Stripe Pumpkins are nestled in a
 Staffordshire sugar and creamer set with leaves. (5 bucks at the flea)

And two of my Vintage Lefton Chipmunks have come out to play. I started my collection of chipmunks and squirrels at my first flea market booth from other vendors, never paying more than 10 dollars a piece.

 This is my old folding card table in front of the fireplace opening; perfect colors for Fall, and it hides the cavernous black hole. not pretty.

Did I mention that I love Fall...?
Vintage finds that last forever.

(yeah, I thought you might know that.)
