Fall Mantel


It seems that I have fall’en behind in posting some of  my  Fall décor.   I tried simple, and as much as it appeals to me, it just doesn’t work on my mantle .  It seems to favor  abundance, even though we didn’t  quite reach that point.


I put a few sprigs of eucalyptus (it smells so nice)  in one of my  vintage  demijohns which was purchased in Round Top. 



Added some floral sprigs,



Lotus pods,



Candles,  Ribbon



And a pale peachy colored pumpkin on top of a book.






Hope you will join us  for Potpourri Friday!
Link up begins Thursday afternoon.



Until next time, Honey
