Fall Fireplace Mantle

It is a cool rainy day here in eastern New Mexico,   perfect for doing a little fall decorating.    I have needed to change the decor on the mantle for quite a while....the spring decor was still!

On the left you can see how the mantle looked earlier today............................on the right is the new fall mantle.

I replaced the framed floral design over the mantle with a grouping of mirrors and it really seemed to lighten the area up!  I also brought back in the fireplace screen that I had moved to the faux fireplace in the guest bedroom.  

I decorated the mantle with owls and some of  the faux fur pumpkins that I have been making......
I put a big white glittery pumpkin on each end of the mantle......
I haven't had any candles on the mantle in years,   so I was ready to "light up" the mantle for a change.....
This is the window and doors on the opposite wall that you can see reflecting in the mirrors....
Pardon that mess in the floor on the lower right of the photo.....that is the pile of fabric that has been by my chair for about a month.   I work on cloth pumpkins while I'm watching TV in the evenings.
This is the little white owl on the other side of the mantle.....
I wired some antlers to the fireplace screen.  

I am so glad to have that spring mantle changed took me long enough!
