I just completed my fall mantel so I thought I'd share it with you. I kept it simple (as always) and went for a more 'French farmhouse' look.
I used this beautiful Madonna as a starting point. She was one of my birthday gifts from my mom, and she's a favorite!
I recently found this Rosary at the flea market and think it's perfect draped on her.
Beside her is a metal candlestick adorned with crystals (the pair also gifted to me by my mom, years ago) with a tiny faux pumpkin perched on top.
Next, as a centerpiece I filled a white ironstone pitcher with pheasant feathers, placed it on a stack of vintage books...
...and snuggled it up against a couple of sweet sweater pumpkins!
To the far right I added a matching candlestick and pumpkin...
...along with a pretty metal lantern.
I used a new backdrop for this whole vignette...a huge shabby but ornate window that I picked up at a friend's garage sale! This baby is HEAVY!
I fell in love with it, and she let me have it for a steal!
(Love that is still has some original, rusty hardware attached!)
And I left my trusty burlap and rhinestone banner up!
So there you have it!
My mantel is finally dressed for fall!
( To complete the look, I added some tall rustic candle holders and a large wicker bottle to the hearth.)
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a fantastic week :)
