What do you get when you put together a hand-painted sign on an old fence board...
found by these two cute little boys....
and two thrift store owls painted white?
Well, my Fall Mantle of course! They're actually just shelves, but because I don't have a fireplace mantle, these work just as well for seasonal decorating. The rest of the items I'm sure you've seen before if you are a follower of my blog.
The empty frames, the blue mirror(seen in this post), and the iron star...they're all here.
For the sign, I free handed the letters and the paint. I wanted it to look more rustic. And, I'm not quite ready to go full force with all the oranges and yellows that you'd usually see in Fall decor. That's why I kept a more natural look with the whites, blues and natural wood tones.
Like these sticks in an old jelly jar. What a great way to entertain your kids...have them search for sticks(what little boy doesn't like to dig in the dirt with a stick?) and you can use them as part of your decor. It's a win win I tell ya!
I love it for the month of September! It's simple, clean, rustic and yet a bit modern looking with the white owls and blue mirror.
What about you? Have you started decorating for Fall? If so, please send me a link back to your blog. I'd love to include them in this weeks edition of Friday Favorites!
