Fall on the Mantle and Hearth

I was inspired by Pinterest this year in doing my mantle. I found a pin that had a beautiful garland hanging off the side of the mantle. I took it from there and this is what I created. I used this glass pumpkin on the left side. I am loving the glass pumpkins!
 Many of you have seen this berry garland for many years, usually just draped across the mantle. I wound it together with a leaf garland then draped it down the side of the mantle.

 I added some dries orange slices too.


One of my velvet pumpkins at the base of one of the candle sticks.
 The candle sticks are holding 2 of my crackle pumpkins.
 A wooden acorn sits in the center.
 I created a new arrangement in this pottery vase adorned with turtles. It is a favorite of mine.
 I used berries, Chinese lanterns, feathers,  and sticks.




 Since I took these pictures I added a candle ring under the other pumpkin too.

 I kept the hearth simple as there is a lot going on, on the mantle.


 My ivy topiary cranes, a blue and white jar and a velvet pumpkin adorn each side of the hearth.

 I hope you have enjoyed seeing the Fall 2016 mantle. Thanks so much for your visit.

Glitz and Glam in the Dining Room for Fall!!!!

I found this runner about a month ago and fell in love. I decided to use it as a base for my decorating in the dining room for Fall. I brought in some animal pillows too, to sit on the arm chairs.
 I love the silver, gold and black sparkly leaves on the runner!

 I brought out some mercury glass votives.
 And  I also added some berry picks and gold branches to the garland. A mercury glass candle stick is used
 To perch a jewel encrusted pumpkin upon!
 A coppery sparkle pumpkin sits on a candle holder as well.
 The gold pumpkin is perched on a gold vase!
 I used a green and twiggy garland down the center and added a pearl garland and some other embellishments. I added some gold branches and some berry picks.
 These gorgeous gold embroidered napkins were my Mother-in-laws. I treasure them.
 My good china came out of the hutch and I added a gold leaf on the bowl.  A sparkly silver placemat grounds the dishes. Black handled flatware came out too.



 I plan to leave the table set like this as we don't use the dining room a lot and it is the first room you see when you enter our house.
Thanks for your visit.
XO, Pinky

Early Fall in the Master

Good morning my friends! I am WELCOMING fall and all it means. I LOOOVE this time of year. Our heat is almost over, we are having beautiful days in the 80's. Wed. will be 90 again but then we are back to the 80's which is perfect for me! I decided to do just a few simple changes in the master for early fall. I love this bedding ALOT so instead of changing it I just changed some pillows! Easy peasy! And a new look.
 This is how the bed was dressed for Summer. I love my coral pillows!
 To switch to a fall look I just switched out some pillows!
 I found this cute pillow at Hobby Lobby! We FINALLY got a HL nearby! I was actually going to the checkout and saw a few pillows. Decided to try this one. It still has the ticket on it cause I was not sure if I would keep it.
 See, I also have this pillow. Which one do you prefer? I like the lightness of the first one, but then I like this one too:)


 I placed a pretty. sparkly pumpkin on a pumpkin tea towel on the tray. The green lantern is a favorite of mine.
 Here is the sitting room part of our room.
 I like this pillow over here too.
 I placed some fall candle rings on the candle sticks in here too.


We are both SO glad we chose to have the sitting room. It is such a nice spot and gives us a lot more room in here. We are SO happy with this house. Can you believe it will be 4 years on Oct. 1st!!?? Yup, time flies when you're having fun! Thanks so much for your visit. Have a most beautiful Fall day!
 XO, Pinky
