Fall Mantel 2012

I recently updated my mantel for fall. I removed the sticks, coral, sea fans and other summery things from the urns and added some dried wheat in a beautiful amber color. Then I added some vintage books, a vintage box, a bunch of grapes and couple of critters. I didn't do pumpkins and gourds this time. You can see the way it looked before here.








I love this cute little brown squirrel that I recently picked up at the antique mall.











I found the grapes at City Farmhouse in Franklin, Tn. when we went up to Nashville.

The basket in the fireplace is filled with more of my dried hydrangeas and some other greenery.
