Can I let you in on a little secret? We added an electric fireplace in our living room. We maxed out our budget on our family room fireplace remodel so we opted for an easier fireplace in our living room. I love this mantel this sign completed the look!



Living in Colorado friends assume we have a roaring fire and hot toddy in the evening. I blame my fireplace obsession on this famous tv dad (if you were born before 1985).

We built a fireplace in our DIY library wall.  


Mantel Decor Ideas for the fall season

  • fall sign
  • stems
  • glass hurricane
  • lantern
  • candlesticks
  • pumpkins

The best part is so many of us have all of these accessories just waiting to celebrate the season.

This year I did something at Hobby Lobby I never do. No, not that. 

I bought a farm fresh autumn harvest sign in July. Yep, it was on sale and I loved the sign with its copper colors and engraved print.

The rest of my accessories were from the basement archives.

I updated my fall stems last year (also from Hobby Lobby). I added them to a glass hurricane and called it to fall!
