My Mantle Has Fallen!

Hello, Dear Ones! Well, that is totally right - my Mantle has Fallen! Everything seems to be Fallen in my home! :) So here goes...
My mantle is in the den and here it is in all of it's Fallen glory!


First I poked up a Fallen wreath that I've had a few years in front of my mirror. My mirror is very olden and has been in my family for many years. It's very plain and not too pretty but I love it so placing a wreath in front of it seemed like a good thing to do! Some of the leaves of the wreath were rather bent and wrinkled so I took my Fallen wreath to the ironing board and steamed the leaves and they began to straighten out! Genius! ;)

I grabbed three candle sticks and poked three little punkins on top of them! Autumn Fallen leaves are resting all over the place too.

Now I love my Roosters and that is with a capital "R"! I have never placed a Rooster on my mantle. What is wrong with me? Well, this handsome fellow looks like he was made to be Fallen and he looks pretty fine on my mantle. Don't you think so?

Just look at his face ~ he's so proud! He is sitting on some books to elevate his importance and I've placed a few faux berries at his feet! He loves this stuff! :)


Don't you love the colors of Fall? I sure do!


Pretty oranges, reds, golds and yellows ~ Falleness of color.

Now, maybe I should get a fire going and sip a nice cup of hot tea! Well, actually the air conditioning is going full blast and it's supposed to be close to 100' this week! I'm doing my best to 'rush' the temps around here because Fall is almost here! :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Light My Fire

You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I was to say to you
Girl, we couldn't get much higher
Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire

The time to hesitate is through
No time to wallow in the mire
Try now we can only lose
And our love become a funeral pyre
Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire, yeah

The time to hesitate is through
No time to wallow in the mire
Try now we can only lose
And our love become a funeral pyre
Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire, yeah

You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I was to say to you
Girl, we couldn't get much higher
Come on baby, light my fire
