~ Harvest Mantle ~

Hi, how is everybody doing? This rain, clear up here in Michigan from the hurricane, is something else. Yesterday I drove home from up north in it and it took me forever. The drive gave me lots of time to pray for the people of Texas and the rest of the gulf coast that where hit so hard, I can't imagine.

Today it isn't raining yet but it is pretty gray out so I decided to put a few extra lights up and fluff up the mantle for the season.


While up north I picked up a new garland for fall that fit well as the base for the mantle decoration.



A little cluster of bittersweet berries gives a little height.


I really don't know why there are two of almost the same pictures...........


Here's a close up of the apple garland and the little fall black bird.


Hope you are all safe and sound and enjoying your fall decor in your snug houses since outside it sure is ugly, at least in these parts anyway.

Hugs,

Sue

  3. If Halloween decorating can look understated and elegant, you've pulled it off. Very pretty!

    Just when it was looking like we wouldn't see a drop of rain, we did. After I'd pulled out furniture and boxes from the garage for Monday morning's thrift shop pick-up. :-/

  5. Very pretty! It rained all day here in OK yesterday, but today was gorgeous! The rain really cooled things off and I sure hope it lasts.
