Fall mantle decorations



Well, yesterday I spent about 12 hours working on my dh new building. We were having 120 tons of store delivered. It sure has been a lot of work but we are one step closer to finishing this project. But it has been so hot and humid here that on Wednesday I took so time to stay inside and work on my fall mantle. It was fun to see something new (well actually old) on the mantle. I normally put up much more that you are seeing but a lot of my stuff is actually Thanksgiving so I didn't put it out because I know that it is too early for those decorations!
I took a close up of this stitchery I bought a few years ago...I love what it says so I put it up right away and will begin to enjoy it until the Christmas decorations go up. Well...I wll be around for a visit! Until then, Be blessed.
