Fall Mantel

This year I looked to the outdoors to be inspired, and inspiration was everywhere. I filled jars with sticks that I spray painted in clear coat, and leaves.

Also inspiring were the acorns. Those adorable little button tops, who can resist them? Pumpkins, and gourds, and squash! Oh, my!

I was dreading fall, and the inevitable cold weather, but now I am embracing it in all of its glory.

Gotta like it. Do what comes natural. It is more authentic, anyhow.

Beautiful! I came over from Nester's party and looked around for a little bit. Loved the Mustang Sally and Weather or Not posts. I live in a house full of boys and hate cold too. So nice to meet you!
