fresh fall mantle...


Hey everyone, hope you all had a fabulous couple days off, we couldn't ask for more
a more beautiful fall weekend. Yesterday was a good day for my ORC room,  just
 as we were thinking we were going to have to buy retail, the Craigslist Gods smiled upon
 us and the ideal pieces showed up. Check back on Thursday and I'll show you what we
 scored for an amazing price! I fit in time for a fall mantle refresh using a few things
from around our house and yard.     


I borrowed a couple pieces from my blue and white collection, gave my favorite
 lady bust a shawl of Virginia creeper vine, added a few orange books, and propped
 my zebra tray from Target (did anyone not buy that?) up on an easel. 


I love my new gold sculptural sphere, a friend picked it up for me at Hobby Lobby,
it's a budget friendly ($8.50 with coupon) knock off of West Elm's sculptural sphere.


You know I'm all over using greenery from my yard, I was hoping for fall-ish
 looking branches of leaves, but no luck. I had two choices green or crunchy brown.


Have a wonderful week sweet friends,
 and thank you so much for all of your kind comments and excitement for the ORC!

Well, I can't imagine why you didn't incorporate crunchy brown?! Your pretty mantle is the perfect example that you don't have to buy lots to bring in seasonal updates. Looking forward to seeing your finds!

Everyone has their mantel done but me. I better get shakin' or before I know it, it will be time to put out the Christmas stuff.
I'm going to steal your idea of bringing in some green from the yard.

Love the balance of the jars on either end but that they are different at the same time too - and of course I always love the natural elements that you bring in. Looks nice!
