I wasn't even thinking on creating a Fall mantel, I was trying to wait and create one for Christmas, but I was so tired of the busy one I created for Halloween that on Saturday morning I started taking things down. It always happens like that, I put lots of stuff there and one month later I can't wait to make it lighter.
But then, I remembered
the banner could be used both ways so, that's what I did...
And then, I couldn't stop there!
I didn't want anything busy, neither work on creating something new. Since I was also in cleaning mode, I grabbed this metal basket/tray that was being used to keep the fruits and vegetables on top of the kitchen island. I didn't want it there any longer, it was too big, and the kids and the hubs thought they could store anything on it, somehow car-keys, pencils, school papers, toys and many other little items made it into this basket.
And I went looking for more... A black metal tray.
And this beautiful wicker basket filled with paper flowers also made it there.
Yet, another basket full of pumpkins and pine cones was brought in, to give company to the Fall branches in the vase. I know, they're fake, but that's easy and hey, they kind of look good imo.
Love the little acorns on them.
Hey, that was quick and easy, right?!
