Fall Mantelfestation

Hello, Dear Ones! Well, I thought I had better finish showing you my fall decorating before it's time to start pulling it all down again. I'm going to start my Christmasing a little earlier this year because we're hosting a Christmas party early in December! So come on back into the den to see my mantel.
 The weather has been so nice but it's always cozy to have a little fire going!
 Here's what all I poked up on my mantel - mantelfestation! My word of course. First of all I'm loving changing out what plates to hang on the wall for the different seasons!
 I love my Roosters and they had been a tad neglected so I brought out my most favorite and poked him up here on the right hand side among pun'kins and some fallen leaves.
 Twin candlesticks and a little birdcage sitting on books ~ the centerpiece of the mantelfestation.



I don't know if you can see it or not but there is a little Rooster in there among all of the Fallen things.
 Here's the left side with a little trio of Roosters, all of them very different from the other. On the far left you can see my little good luck cricket! He just hopped right up here on the mantel.
Hope you've enjoyed seeing my Fallen mantelfestation! :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave yo with a little Note Song ~

Hazy Shade of Winter

Time, time, time

See what's become of me
Time, time, time
See what's become of me
While I looked around
For my possibilities
I was so hard to please
Look around
Leaves are brown
And the sky
Is a hazy shade of winter
Hear the salvation army band
Down by the riverside
It's bound to be a better ride
Than what you've got planned
Carry a cup in your hand
Look around
Leaves are brown
And the sky
Is a hazy shade of winter
Hang on to your hopes my friend
That's an easy thing to say
But if your hopes should pass away
Simply pretend
That you can build them again
Look around
Grass is high
Fields are ripe
It's the springtime of my life
Seasons change with the scenery
Weaving time in a tapestry
Won't you stop and remember me?
Look around
Leaves are brown
And the sky
Is a hazy shade of winter
Look around
Leaves are brown
There's a patch of snow
On the ground
Look around
Leaves are brown
There's a patch of snow
On the ground
Look around
Leaves are brown
There's a patch of snow
On the ground
