Fall Welcome Vignette, Mantel and Fall Fluffin

Its official, I have finally gone full on fall!  I really had no choice since the leaves are raining down in the slightest breeze now, lol.  I have added bits of fall here and there all around our little corner of the south.
First up, we welcome you with this almost vintage vignette.

Wonder Hubby and I made the candy corn and pumpkin years ago (so they are vintage or darn close by now!).  I spruced them up a bit with some new paint this year. 

 I added them to pots of mums and sweet potato vine as well as around the little wheelbarrow I picked up back in the summer (gosh I love this thing!).  Let's head inside.
  I took a departure from the heavy on pumpkin and scarecrow almost Halloween approach of last year to a more simple, all fall look for the mantel. 

The centerpiece of the mantel is a Longerberger basket filled with fall foliage and gourds.  I added old books a small trunk and iron candlesticks with fall colored candles to surround.  Lastly I added the bean filled candles, LOVE THESE!

Still loving the autumn blocks I made last year.

I love the ambiance with the candles lit....it is so pretty at night.

Next fluffed a bit and added a little spooky to my kitchen window ledge.
I made the ghosts and blocks last year and blogged about them here.  Joining them are pumpkins the kids carved several years back.  These are my favorite fall items.  I love putting them out every year, I can still see the concentration on their faces when they were working on them.  I think BDJ was 16 and Mini was 9. 
Hope you are enjoying fall and your own fluffing!  Thanks for stopping in.

  4. I think it all looks fabulous, and I honed in like google earth on that wheelbarrow right away. I love it! Your mantel is beautiful. I have worked and worked on mine this year but am not wholly pleased. That's why you haven't seen it blogged abroad. Ha!
