~Welcoming Fall~

 Welcome Friends!
First I would like to give a big thank you to Brenda from 
Cozy Little House for putting together and hosting this bloggers
Fall Home Tour...
I am honored to be one of the 28 bloggers participating!
~~~
 Today I'll be sharing how I decorated our entry and mantel for Fall.

Welcome to our Home!
 I've had this hanging basket on our front door from the beginning of summer and simply changed out the lavender for some natural elements...a simple change that says Fall!
 I added some pumpkins...
 ...and a pretty mum that I stuck in an apple basket.
 Now let's head on in...
 I added a matching color mum to the small chest inside and placed it in this antique planter.
 I continued the natural look into our family room on the mantel.

 The mirror always has center stage on the mantel...I love a layered look so I added an antique painting and print against the mirror.
The ginger jars usually sit empty on the mantel...I had plenty of dried eucalyptus and wheat grass left over so I filled the jars with it...
I love the way it looks!
  A few baby boo pumpkins to finish off the look!

 I love using these little guys around the house...so I added one in the bird nest under the cloche too :-)

Thanks so much for stopping by today...
I hope you enjoyed your visit!!

It all looks so pretty, Martina! I plan on going up to the attic and getting my Fall stuff down this weekend. I did pick up a mum for our front porch urn and I planted that today. It did warm up a bit here today, but this past week the temps have been feeling like Fall.
