31 Days of Progress Day 8 :: Fall Mantel for {Almost} Nothing

Category: Decorating & DIY
Goal: Decorate for Fall {Finally} for $0
Baby Step: Mantel – Done!

– – –

This mantel was kind of a surprise to me.  My trend lately has been “less” with the accessorizing {it’s all relative, of course, my “less” will surely be someone else’s “too much”}.  For some reason, maybe because I am appreciating and working with what I already have, I am okay with adding a little more…enjoying the layers.

True confession time:  I spent 99 cents at Goodwill when I saw this little dessert dish. I couldn’t resist it’s smoky topaz color, which I knew would be a great complement to my amber glass pieces.

Brown_CupHave you posted a picture of your fall mantel?  I’d love to see it, share a link in the comments.  Hope you are all enjoying a beautiful weekend.  Still a little warm here for my taste, but I’m trying to ignore it 🙂

  1. very pretty! I love the glass dessert dish:) We don’t have an official mantle with the new house but I’m thinking I’ll use the top of our cubbies as a way to decorate for the fall:)
