Christmas Mantle

Hey! I finished decorating my mantle last night, I'm happy with it as of now but you all know how that can change quickly! LOL I am proud to say that I haven't spent any money this year yet on Christmas decor. I am trying to work with what I have around my house and have had from previous years. We've never had a mantle in any of the houses we've lived in, so I am having fun decorating one this year! 

I wanted to keep the clock up since I love it so much, so I added some garland and ornaments around it. I might add a strand of battery operated lights to it. 

Here is a closer look, I kept the brown sconces from Kirkland's that I always have on the mantle, I added two finials that I previously had in the foyer and a Santa that I got a few years ago at Target. I swagged some garland that I added ornaments, ribbon and sparkly snowflakes to.

Here is a close up of Mr. Santa I think he is so cute! I love the colors on him.

I always have to add a touch of animal print to everything!

 I added the stockings to the garland. I will be on the lookout for stocking holders when they go on clearance.

I dressed up the candles with some leopard print ribbon and a fleur de lis.

Well that's it for today! I hope you enjoyed my Christmas mantle, I will be working on the rest of the house this week. Be back soon!!

Fall Hutch

Hey Ladies I have finished painting my hutch and have it dressed up for Fall. Join me for some pictures!! My mother in law left this hutch that she used to use for extra storage for dishes in the garage and since I have always wanted a hutch I decided to paint it and move it inside. I painted it dark kettle black by Valspar and distressed it. I did not prime it first because I wanted the other color to show through when I distressed it. I cannot decide if I want to put anything where the glass used to be on the hutch. I had thought about adding iron pieces, but I am kinda liking it without anything. What do you think?

 I had a candle holder that I wasn't using, so I wove through a fall garland and just added pumpkins instead of candles. I bought these little animal print plates a few months back at Ross for 3.99. 

 Last year I made this acorn tassel for myself. 

I added a fall platter that I got from Ross last year for 9.99, a Fall frame that I made, a grapevine pumpkin and a pumpkin napkin holder that I got the other day at Family Dollar for 2 bucks!

 I added a fleur de lis plate and turkey that my mom gave me a few years ago that I just added a pumpkin and fall bead garland to.

While I was at Family Dollar the other day I got these plates for 1 dollar each. I think they would be cute as pie plates, but my husband says they are too small. What are your thoughts? 

I also got these mugs for 1 dollar.

The two bottom photos are what the hutch used to look like before. It was really scratched up and one of the glass inserts was broken. 

Well, that's it for today girls! I am off to go get some supplies to make tassels for my Etsy store! A lot of you have asked what the link is, I currently don't have anything listed in the store but I will in the next few days, so keep checking back!

Have a great day!

Changes to Foyer, Pumpkins and Tassels!

Hey! I have made some changes to my Foyer since my last post, so I wanted to share with you all how it looks now. I am really happy with it now, so it will stay this way until Thanksgiving. We are hosting Thanksgiving this year, so I wanted to keep all of my Fall decor out until then. I know a lot of you are starting to decorate for Christmas, but I will start that Thanksgiving weekend. 

Here is my entry way table, a few posts back I showed you this Tuscan pot that I got from Big Lots and I decided to fill it with some greenery and then just add some leaves, pumpkins and gourds for a touch of fall. I added a fall flower pick from Hobby Lobby to the candlestick and instead of putting a candle on top I place a grapevine pumpkin.

 Here is a close up of the arrangement.

 This is what you see when you walk in the front door.

I found this picture at Michael's the other day, it was on sale for 19.99 and I had a 25% off coupon so it came to 14.99. I thought that was a smokin' deal for its size.

 While I was at Michael's they had all of their Fall decor 80% off, so I got this big pumpkin arrangement. Originally it was marked at 179.99 and I got it for... 29.99! My mom got one too, I will be using hers to display somewhere for Thanksgiving as well. 

This is the back shot of the pumpkin, I love that they added another smaller pumpkin to it too!

 I also got two of these smaller arrangements that were originally 29.99 and I got them for 7.99. SCORE!

 This past week I have been making custom Tassels for Shenita at Embellishments by SLR. Here are some pictures of the Tassels I have made for her. If you are interested in anything customized to your color scheme let me know I'd be glad to come up with something for you.

I am going to be making several Christmas Tassels for my Etsy store this week if you are interested.
