Day three!

Thirty-one days of fabulous fall update. Today it’s the mantel reveal, hopefully it will be a crowd pleaser. If you’re lucky enough to have one, the fireplace mantel is the natural focal point of your floor plan. This years inspiration came from a garage-sale’s roll of moss; cost $1.00! The blackbirds are from the past (my collection). Wasn’t sure if they would make the cut, but couldn’t keep them in the box, they demanded my attention. Gourds and pumpkins were purchased with coupons from a big-box store, along with the orange glass bulbs. The rest was in “inventory” (normally purchased post-holiday). How’s your mantel? Decorated yet? Do you switch it up, or stay with a tried and true theme? Now that the mantel is dressed, Mr. Truffle and I are about to share a glass of wine. Hope you are having just as much fun.

Good evening!

Mrs. Truffle will be your tour guide...

Make your home holiday ready with a little imagination.

The branches were FREE!

Do you like the moss?

Texture gives the room personality.

More texture.

I draped the moss on the branches.

Have you had a chance to show off your mantle?

  1. It's getting scary at the Truffles'! This post reminds me it's time to get out 'The Birds' DVD for viewing. No harvest decos on our mantle this year. I do however have faux pumpkins on the hearth.
