My fall mantel

Somehow I managed to miss The Nester's Fall Mantel party (Fantel)this past week. (Don't you hate it when that happens?) However, I thought I would post some pictures of my fall mantel anyway.

Sort of like my own, lonely, Fantel party. Sniff sniff. Sigh.

Oh heck! Maybe I'll link up to The Nester's party anyway. So what if I'm number 3,492 to add a link! ;)

My mantel was not cooperating this year at all. I've literally been adding & removing & exchanging things on the mantel for the last 4 weeks. I guess painting the living room & going from orange walls, paneling & the huge mirror over the fireplace to this new light & airy look was what was throwing me for a loop! (Living Room Before & After here.)

Thankfully, I think I've got it. Or at least I've stopped adding & removing & exchanging things for a few consecutive days now. That's gotta be progress right? lol

So if you need a little fall mantel inspiration, head right on over to The Nester's party. Inspiration abounds there.


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


  1. At least you're not the last linky. I'm working my way backwards so those of us late to join the party are still having fun.

  2. Great mantle - love the sign and the banner! Found you from The Nester!!

  3. Love the mantle - the sign is great and I the banner is so cute!

    trying again to comment....

  4. Can you believe that I haven't even decorated for fall... and I LOVE decorating for fall. My heart is just too sad.
    But your mantel is so beautiful! I love the bunting and the new sign!!!!

  5. I love your Fantel haha cute word!

    I am new to your blog and I was just reading the post about syroco, what is the best way to go about painting it? Are there certain steps to take or can I just grab so spray paint and go to town?

  6. Hey Gina...Your Fall mantel looks great and so does your Halloween Tablescape. I love your black hutch...and love how the white and orange just pop off of it. Great job my friend. Oh and by the way, I did make the cloth pumpkins on my buffet:-S Have a fantabulous new week.

    Hugs and Kisses,

  7. Gina, thanks for stopping. I think it looks great. It is more difficult when you have light colors, I am a complete shabby pink girl, so I just skip fall and go right to a pink Christmas LOL


  8. Love your mantle. The sign adds a great effect.


  9. Great job! You've inspired me to get my but in gear and get to decorating tomorrow:) Thanks for the inspo!

  10. I love your decorations! Very nice & some really cute pieces. Love the before and after pictures too. I redid my living room and fireplace by painting last year. Totally changed everything. It's amazing what paint and contrasting trim colors can do. LOL

    Have a Wonderful Fall!

  11. It's super super cute!! Oh how I love fall although today feels like summer again!!
