Early Fall Mantle

 Hello Friends,

It doesn't feel like FALL...we are having a heat wave here!

But I KNOW we are heading in that direction ready or not.

Well this my first attempt to add some bits of autumn to the mantle.

My mom recently gave me a blue velvet box.


It belonged to my Grandma.

I had no use for it but kept it for sentimental reasons.

It became my inspiration for my mantle this year.

I remembered I had some blue velvet acorns that I made a couple of years ago.






I thought I would let the acorns spill out of the box.










Have you already started to decorate for Fall?
Do you change things around throughout the season or leave it alone
once you've set out your pumpkins?




I hope you have a wonderful week!

Thanks for letting me share with you!




If you would like to see how I made the acorns,
here is the link to my post.

      Thank you so much! I think my Grandma would have liked it.
      She gave me her transferware BEFORE she passed away because she said she wanted to see me enjoy it:)
