fall mantle

Happy October!

I love everything about this month. The foods (apple, pumpkin, butternut squash, sweet potatoes), warm drinks (apple cider and pumpkin spice lattes), and the colors (changing leaves and crisp blue skies).

Each year, I love dressing up our home for autumn (2012, 2011, 2010). This year, I'm only decorating in one place since we have several home renovation projects underway and that's the mantle.

I'm reusing glass bottles and jars, felt garland and other decor from previous years. The only new addition is the canvas. They lyrics are from Be Thou My Vision and I was inspired by this tutorial from A Beautiful Mess, but used a fabric marker rather than a paint brush.

How are you decorating for fall this year?
