The last few days I've been working on unearthing the holiday paraphernalia and sorting out the fall stuff. I don't have it all done yet, but I have the mantel to show you.
It's not a true mantel, but rather the top of some built-in bookshelves in the office.
This is an early fall version because I intend to change it up a bit when the leaves start to change color. I like to decorate my home with as many of the beautiful natural elements found outside that I can. Since nature is still green around here, I decided to bring that green in through a few apples from my sister's tree.
I also needed to use what I already had around the house. I am certainly not an expert in styling shelves and mantels, but each time I try I think I get a bit better. This is perhaps my favorite yet.
The twig pumpkins were on clearance at Crate and Barrel last year. The tarnished silver bowl was thrifted.
The armillary sphere is one of my favorite trinkets I have—I love the structure. The flower I made from a brown paper bag. The white vases and deer head were from Target.
That's it for now. I'll share more of my fall home…as soon as I get it done. :)
