Fall Mantel 2016

One question....

Has it really been 5 months since I posted anything?
5 whole months?

Yes, I'm afraid it has been.  

Spring & Summer flew by.
My daughter graduated from high school in June.
I guess that answers any questions concerning my
 disappearance from blogging!


So with that...

how about a Fall mantel?

I love fall.
I love all those rich colors.
I thought it would be fun to add
a little blue to the mix this year.

I really love this color palette for Fall.  

Happy Fall!  


Welcome! I'm Gina. Like the header says, this blog is all about home, food and life..


  1. Very pretty, Gina! My daughter graduated in June as well...so I hear you loud and clear! Congrats!

  2. Hi Gina, welcome back. Sometimes life gets in the way. Your mantel is so pretty. You are so creative. Congrats on your daughter graduating. On to bigger things.

  3. Good to see you post Gina! Hope you had a great summer and have been enjoying yourself! Your mantel is so cute- love the addition of the blue.

  4. You always do a gorgeous mantle! Congrats to your daughter...life just keeps getting better and busier! ;-D


  5. Gina,
    It has been 5 months, dear friend!
    I stopped by earlier this week just to make sure I hadn't missed any posts. (wink!)
    I can understand how precious time is with your daughter. . .
    blogging sometimes must take a "back seat".
    However, with this gorgeous Fall mantel,
    I'd say the time 'recharging your batteries' was well spent!
    Welcome Back!

  6. Hey, stranger it is soo good to see you again in Blogland!

    Love you Fall mantle.

    Sounds like you have been a busy lady.

    Come back soon.

  7. Love the colours in this beautiful display! And congratulations on your daughter's graduation!

  8. Hey Gina! I know the feeling... it's hard to keep up with everything sometimes. Your fall mantle looks so pretty! I still have my summer one up but it's still 90 degrees here so it's all good :) Thank you so much for visiting my blog and I was wondering if you are on IG? I've been sharing there all summer and I've enjoyed it... would love to connect if you're there. Have a great weekend~

  9. Hi Gina!
    Gee.. it's easy for time to get away from us, and I can see why you have been busy with other things! Congrats to you daughter on her graduation! Onto bigger and better things.. yay!

    Lovely Fall mantle.. the blue really is striking with the traditional Fall colors.

    Have a great weekend, my friend. Good to be reading posts from you once more.


  10. Hi, Gina!

    So did your daughter go off to college, then? Hope you enjoyed your summer. Of course it is still vryhot and summer-like weather, soit is so difficult to get into the autumn decorating yet - though I have - just not much free time to blog about it, either. Spring, summer ca,e amnd went without sharing either. I hear ya, lady.

    Hugs. ♥♥
