Fall Mantel Inspiration

I am beyond honored to be joining the following fabulous bloggers in presenting our ideas for this year's "Fall Mantel Inspiration".  Please visit all of these bloggers below and don't forget to also see these talented women on Instagram with links at the end of this post!


I really had to put my design thinking cap on for this one!
I have two mantels in my home, so I thought it only fitting to decorate both in different styles.
My family room mantel sports a large television much to my chagrin, 
but that being said, there is still no reason not to make it pretty!

Because I love mixing old and new with a touch of nature my first mantel which is centered an old transferware container and hydrangeas from my front yard.




Vases are from Amy Karyn  in Hopewell, NJ.

I love pulling out this old flea market brown transferware piece and using it as a flower pot.
Hydrangeas fit nicely with enough water to keep them vibrant until 
I allow them to become a dried arrangement. 
I even like the rough pumpkins with a bit of character!

My Bedroom mantel also has a television and because it's used rather infrequently,
I decided to cover it up with a great piece of art from katestephensonphotography.com.
I chose a warm brown and dusky tone Horse that definitely called for muted pumpkins.


I used faux pumpkins this time and painted them with plaster colored chalk paint.
I again used hydrangeas from my garden 
and dried flower stalks from Bountiful Gardens in Chester, NJ.
I left the old clock which I use as a quirky accessory on the hearth 
and played with plaster and brown tones!

Again and old vintage aged brass pumpkin thrown in the mix just because!
Something about mixing old with new that feel I always need to do,.


I took old grade school books of my now adult girls and folded the covers back exposing the spine, only two paper backs had their covers entirely removed. 
I happen to have a bag of thick ribbons that I have collected over the years and as luck would have it one matched the art quite well.

However, I still felt I needed and organic object so I threw an old antler next to the pumpkins that I had painted gold some time ago.  
The vases are actually Pottery Barn which I found last Fall season, they had me at "Hello"!





Night time view... sans hearth clock..

Now go see what those other fabulous bloggers have created on their mantels,
and be sure to check out the Instagram posts as well !

    2. Appreciation is an application for more, that is why I am here to thank Dr Ogara for restoring my marriage and casting death spell on my enemy . My wife woke up one morning acting weird, she kept insisting that she want to pack out of the house. She said she was tired of the marriage. I was shocked because we did not quarrel and eventually she packed out of our home the next day. I cried and tried all I could to get her back but she refused to see me or hear from me .4th of November I saw an article about Dr Ogara spell home so I reached out to him and he told me that my wife was been controlled with some black magic by her wicked friend who is not married she want my wife to leave her husband house so they both can be single, hearing this i wasn't surprise because i have always suspect that her friend was evil but my wife never believe me. without wasting time I told Dr Ogara to help me. I need my wife back home and I want her friend out of the way. In less than 72 hours my wife came back with her luggage begging me to accept her back. I was so happy to have my wife back and after two days of my wife returned, her friend fell off the stairs and died. It was then I realized there is power in the voodoo of Dr Ogara. thank you Dr Ogara. For any spell like revenge spell, getting your lover back and death spell to destroy your enemies before they destroy you contact Dr Ogara now via ogaraspellhome@aol.com you can also call or WhatsApp him via +2348106758893

  9. Hello everyone i want testify how DR OKOLO the spell caster saved my marriage After being in relationship with my husband for
    years, he broke up with me because of another woman. I did everything within my reach to bring him
    back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I
    had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused.
    I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather
    contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , not knowing my husband was under spell
    I had no choice than to try it. I messaged the spell caster, and he assured
    me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before three days.
    He cast the spell and surprisingly on the second day, my husband called me.
    I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so
    sorry for everything that had happened He wanted me to return to him. He
    also said he loved me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how
    we started living together happily again. The spell casters email is :

  10. I just want to share my experience with the entire world on how i got my husband back and saved my marriage… I was married for 10 years with 4 kids and i have been living happily with my family until things started getting ugly with me and my husband that leads us to fights and arguments almost every time… it got worse at a point that my husband filed for divorce… I tried my best to make him change his mind & stay with me cause i loved him with all my heart and didn't want to loose my husband but everything just didn't work out… He moved out of the house and still went ahead to file for divorce… I pleaded and tried everything but still nothing worked. The breakthrough came when someone introduced me to this wonderful, great spell caster called Dr AKHIGBE, Who eventually helped me out… I have never been a fan of things like this but just decided to try it because I was desperate and left with no choice… He did the spell for me and things really work out as he promise and my husband have a change of mind and come back home to stay with me and the kids. And promise never to hurt me again. we are living happily as it was with the help of Dr AKHIGBE. If you are in need of help you can contact Dr AKHIGBE. Email Drakhigbespellhome7@gmail.com  or call him via : +2349021374574

  19. A GREAT SPELL CASTER (DR. EMU) THAT HELP ME BRING BACK MY EX GIRLFRIEND.
    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.

  20. Hello everyone, I am Mia. from Oklahoma USA, I want to use this medium to appreciate Dr Ogedegbe the great black magic spell caster for the successful death spells he cast on someone for me. I contacted him when my husband left me for another woman who uses witchcraft power to take my husband. I was desperately in need of help when I found his contacts online about his genuine powers. I told him my situation and how I wanted the bitch who took my husband gone. He told me not to worry. He cast the death spells ritual on her and the bitch died in her sleep within 24hours. Now my husband  is back home and we are living happily. Thank you so much Dr Ogedegbe, You are so real and true. Below are his contacts in case you want to contact him via email dr.ogedegbe6@gmail.com or Call/WhatsApp:  +2348109374702.........
