Fall Mantel and the Colors of Autumn

 I made a few small changes to my mantel for the Fall season.

I wanted a simple natural look this year and this is what I came up with.

A grouping of crocks, an antique box and a dried twig wreath.

Another twig wreath simply hung on the mirror with some burlap and a basket of sweet annie that smells just wonderful. I kept my vintage spools and candles in antique boxes to complete the look.

Fall is my favorite season and each year I anxiously await the colors of the season.

The color this year is just gorgeous. This is the lake view framed in a vivid sea of color.

The mountains beyond the field are just bursting.

Nature in all its glory!

Mother Nature has come through once again. Fall in New England - such a wonderful time of year! I hope that you are enjoying this glorious season as well.

Until next time ~ Suzanne.

  1. Simple works for me, Suzanne. Your mantle looks divine.

    And you're absolutely right...there's nothing better than Autumn in New England.

    Thanks for sharing.

  2. Your mantle looks wonderful......and those pictures of "FALL" absolutely gorgeous!!!

  3. I love the natural look also, those dried twig wreaths are really neat. It all looks great!

    Girl, you are so very blessed to be where you are! I would never leave my home if I had views like that year round. I'm sure it's beautiful all year long, but the gorgeous colors of fall are breathtaking where you are!!

  4. Your mantel looks great and so are the views you have around your place. Just beautiful!

  5. HI Suzanne,
    I found a little wooden match stick holder at an antique store. I would like to repaint it black and put a little punch needle design on it.
    Could you tell me what kind of black paint you would use on it?
