Fall Fireplace mantle and hearth for 2013

Well Hello There
Sweet Friends................

Seems like ages ago since I have written
a post but it has really only been 3 days,
guess it is because there has just been
so much going on around here!!  lol

Hope this finds you well and happy and
probably doing what I have been doing,
Fallercizing your home............lol

I have finished the family room and
the dining room all accept for the dining
room table,  but that is where all my
decorating stuff was...........so have to
put that away first, after a few tweaks
 to the living room and the guest bath,
 and a couple more things outside, and 
then I am gonna call it a year.........

I am happy to report that Dee and
Jerry made it uneventfully to Asheville
last Friday night, and got their stuff
delivered on Sat., have already set up
 their new apt.- things are going well,
  and they are loving life!!
 that makes this Mom a happy girl.

I have talked to her several times
already and she has emailed a few
pics so that is nice.  We will be get-
ing our stuff for skyping by the end of
the week,so that will even be better.

Well, thought I would show you the
fireplace mantle and hearth.......
I have really been enjoying some of
the Fall home tours when I get a few
minutes to visit.............
If you haven't been to Stone Gable
and you love the whites,  by all 
means go visit Yvonne.  Exquisite.
I am falling in love with white decor
more all the time........

So on with my fireplace............
which is all in traditional fall colors, and I am
loving that too...............

Come on into my family room.....where we do all 
our hanging out and TV/movie watching
 and visiting.............

It started out simple but then just kept layering.

All these picstures are going from left to right 
on the mantle.  You can never go wrong with
pinecones, apples and candles for Fall.

or berries and popourri.

I use to love that this topiary use to light up,
  but the lights eventually blew and there was
 no way to fix them unfortunately........
Just had to cut them out.

also can't go wrong with pears or any
kind of fruit for that matter or plates
for Fall either.

These are lil pinecones christmas ornaments I 
found somewhere last year and used on my
Thanksgiving table.

I weaved and draped this gold wired Tulle I
bought years ago to add a lil more fluff...

Love this lil ceramic pumpkin my Sil Susan
gave me many years ago.

Liked the added touches of creamy white by
 using the pitcher and the pear.

Also love using candles this time of the year
 and thru winter.
Candles just make me happy for some reason,
maybe because they represent the light of the

Here is the total package.
I decided to use my gold pumpkins
on the hearth this year.  last year
I used them on the coffee table.

I enjoy putting candles in the fireplace
cause we don't use it till winter,  if we
get to at all since we live in Florida.

In those lil cubbies in the book shelves,  I used
the same plates as on the mantle with a lil
girl and boy fall figurine.  Also hung lil tags
that Becky from over at Timewashed gave me
a few years back

Here's the lil guy

here's the lil girl,  these pics
were from last year. i think they
are so cute................

Just beautiful!!! My favorite is the candles in the fireplace (especially from a distance! It looks like you have a fire going!)

My next favorite is the little boy and girl. It takes me back to the stories I used to read to my students in the fall!

I appreciate the wonderful job you did on the exercise bike seat! It works great!
Love you, Susan

It looks very pretty, Nellie! Your used brick fireplace is very similar to the one we had when we lived in Oregon -- love those! Layering is the best way to do fall decorating; kind of the way we layer our clothing at this time of year.
