A Simple Fall Mantle~

Now that the temperatures here in the South are finally cooling off, I am gradually adding a few fall touches around our home.  

I love fall, the cooler temps, the colors, the smells.  However, I am not a huge fan of all the Halloween stuff.  I prefer to decorate for the season, not just a one day holiday.  The  touches I add will carry us through until Thanksgiving...which I cannot believe is just two short months away!!

A fun frame with the girls picture from fall two years ago (they are begging me to have it done on canvas to replace the existing one).  Battery operated candles from Pottery Barn-I love set them and then they come on each evening at the same time and stay on for 5 hours!!  The cream ones I use year round and bring out the birch ones in the fall.  My beloved dough bowl that holds succulents in the summer months has been filled with 3 small pumpkins. And lastly, my sweet owl I found last fall rounds out the grouping.

Love the little pumpkins!! And their bright orange color.

This fun frame I picked up at a local gift store called Swoozies.  Perfect Southern saying.

Just little things here and there.

Thank you for your continued prayers and sweet emails of encouragement.
