My Fall Mantel with Oscar the Owl

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.
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....


  1. Wow! What a mix of textures!! I love the book page canvases- I'll have to remember that trick!! I like the height you have achieved using the two shelf levels!

  2. Looks great Kim! Love your displays, especially the wreath, and the buntings:) So fall and festive! ~Bre

  3. Love the layered book pages - super cute and pretty!

  4. Love your Fall mantle!
    Super cute!
    I need to get home and get busy!!
