Show Us Your LIfe - Fall Decorations

I love fall and I love decorating for it. However.... my husband doesn't see the point in it...so..... I don't get to do too much. I had been wanting to redo my mantle for quite a while so I went to Michaels and came back with the following.
I will start off with the befores....
The mantle was just a hodge-podge mixture of Russian nesting dolls, Russian eggs and a porcelian Russian doll, drawings from my girls, gift cards (the only place I couldn't lose them) and even coins and batteries! LOL! Something needed to be done!

My mother in law bought me these candle holders. I love them!
I bought these hurricanes many years ago and knew I would use them eventually. I think they go very well here.
The right side. Do you see the hidden pumpkin?
The centerpiece was actually a little wreath. I pulled the natural leaves and stems through and then added a floral centerpiece through the middle.
The lace is actually a real shimmery brown. It matches perfect! And of course a pinecone! The finished product. Do you think it still needs something?
My floral fall arrangement.
The colors in my living room are mostly espresso, gold and creme. I wanted to add a punch of color...enter the maroon sunflower.
I love pinecones and I love hiding them in all my arrangements.

These decorations were taking while walking around our neighbor hood. It's been pouring rain here and I haven't been able to go outside and take a decent picture of our outdoor decor. This weekend is looking to be nice so hopefully I can get that posted soon.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. Don't forget to stop by here and here to see more of everyones lovely decorations! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

I love your decorations! I wish we had a mantle to decorate. Instead, everything gets thrown around the house :)

I like your lighted pumpkin outside! My sister lives in San Antonio too! We love to visit there.
I bought my blank chandelier shades at Hobby Lobby. They are the kind that are sticky. If you have the patience, you can print off a 40% coupon from their website and one by one go buy them - I can't remember how much they are a piece. I hope you'll leave me a comment with a link if you make some!
