And the very best place to start is always with the mantel.
Along with all the traditional fall elements, I used a combination of milk glass and a bit of silver for sparkle.
The clocks are a new addition. Karla bought a whole box full at an auction and I picked a few favorites at our tag sale.
We grow pumpkins and gourds in our garden, but they did not do very well this year, so I have a mix of real and faux.
I picked up the Maple St. sign at Lucketts in the spring. It's the name of the street where I grew up. I think it's pretty appropriate for fall, don't you?
These cool nubby gourds came from the farmer's market.
And even if you don't love to eat it, candy corn is a must!
This is the area above my desk and a fun little spot to decorate with more milk glass and fall elements.
Four thirty eight is the address of the house where my husband's grandparents lived. And it's the little house where we hold our sales. And I just love mixing typography into the mix wherever possible.
Acorns were also a bit sparse this year. Or maybe the squirrels just beat me to them!
Collecting elements from your own yard is fun and easy!
You can always count on a bowl of kisses (or two) at my house!
And this is the very last sunflower from our garden.
