Mantel Love

Hello there! Hard to believe tomorrow is the first day of October, right?
I’m really liken my mantel this year,
I used four of my crocks that I have had for years, you wouldn’t believe how many I do have down in the basement.
Anyway, I thought I’d use a few this year for a little bit of a rustic look.
Oh, and while I’m thinking about it the owl pillow on my sofa in my last post I bought at TJMaxx or Marshall’s, a few of you asked about it in the comments.
Actually the two on the mantel and one on the left side at the bottom are called salt jars, a primitive mason jar if you will, you can feel the salt on the sides of them. Found these early in the 80’s so only paid a few dollars for them.
I think it all looks so nice against the white brick, one of the best things I ever did was to paint that fireplace, smile!
I’ve had the grapevine wreath and wanted to use it this year so wrapped some faux bittersweet from GW around it and added the blackbird from DT.
Believe me that is one budget friendly wreath!

Always use the checked pumpkin from Target…this is the left side of the mantle. The grapevine pumpkin is from JoAnn’s I bought it last year!



I wanted another pillow with just a bit of blue in it so found it at Walmart.
I think it goes so well with the Peacock blue chair, don’t you?
I hope you are having a beautiful Fall Monday!
I’ll be joining these parties…I can’t wait to see all the Fall inspiration out there!
Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit!

Very pretty! I love the wreath on the window frame and the crow sitting there is just perfect. I like every element you used for your mantle this year. It's so pretty! You just reminded me I am also missing my metal owl I got last year too. Hmm? Love your owl pillow on the sofa too!
