Fall Mantel in the Den

I finished the fall vignette on the den mantel.

Last week, I found this sweet tin pumpkin treasure from "Goodwill". (I love the price of $1.99 for a tin pumpkin)

I purchased the fall leaves swag from "TJ Maxx".

I've owned this ceramic pumpkin since the early 1990s.

The ceramic pumpkins with corn were purchased this year from "TJ Maxx". (Oh how, I wish we had a "Home Goods Store" in the OKC Metro Area).

The candlesticks I have had for years.  The crosses on the candles were purchased at Trade Days in Canton, Texas.  I spray painted the crosses with "ORB", and highlighted the crosses with "Rub-n-Buff" gold.  I then pinned the ribbon around the candles and added the crosses.

A closer look at one of the candles.

This year, I made a corn husk wreath for the mantel.  This is the first one I have ever made.  I was inspired by the Martha Stewart's Corn Husk Wreath.  It appears in blogland, thus I am not the only person who loves the different styles of  Corn Husk Wreaths.

I added white pumpkins along the mantel among the leaves of the swag.

Another look.

I am hooked on white pumpkins!

Loving the white pumpkins!

I added different gourds and pumpkins at the base of the fireplace.

Now presenting the finished fireplace mantel!

Here is the total look of the fireplace area in the den.

Yea!! LOOK !  I need to go on another adventure to find a rug for the area in front of the fireplace. 

I will be linking up to party at the following places:

Layla @ The Lettered Cottage

Stacy @ Not Just a Housewife

Linda @ Coastal Charm
