I did however try to muster the motivation to at least touch up my fireplace and mantle. I took the coral and sea shells off and added touches of fall smells and colors.
I love pine cones and love to have them throughout my decor. I pulled a few out, but it is nothing in comparison to what I usually have out.
We picked up a few new items to add to the mantle from Michaels. This is just a work in progress...there is still sooooo much to do.
I actually won this soy candle from the Yellow Rose of Tx candle company. They smell sooooo good. Yesterday a new catalog came in the mail and I'm thinking one of their candles would make a great giveaway item!
The moss balls are new to the mantle. I like them, CC likes them but Papa Bear and Lena said they would like to play golf with them....
I wanted to try a "fallish" craft, so I bought a small glass jar, layered some coffee beans and candy corn and placed a little votive candle inside. I love the way it looks and when it burns it smells divine!!
I added some fall flowers to the floral arrangement in front of the fireplace.
There is still something missing. I can't put my finger on it. Hopefully I can find some inspiration online and in my magazines....
If you have any ideas of what's missing or what needs to be added, please, please feel free to let me know. I am in desperate need of help!!! (there are so many talented bloggers out there with great style!)
I'll be linking up to a couple of parties, hoping to find some help/inspiration!
