Fall officially starts this Saturday.
Officially here its still very warm.
But I needed my New England touches.
I loved last year's Fall Mantel
But this year I wanted to do something different.
I did use a lot of the same elements.
My Fall Wreath
Dictionary Page Canvases.
And of course all of my favorite materials
Burlap and Book Pages.
The biggest makeover I did was paint my Mantel shelf
I was getting tired of the black.
I used the same grey I used on my Ugly Duckling Makeover
and I even added a shelf.
I am liking my two tiered Mantel now.
Best thing is all that I purchased was the twiggy branches.
(on 75% off at JoAnn's in the damaged pile)
And Mom bought me the Owl
His name is Oscar.
And I named him....not the 6 year old.
The more I look at it the more I love it.
I can enjoy it for a few weeks
Until the 6 year old starts on me about Halloween
So what do you think about the two shelves?
Hanging out with my Friends....
