Late Summer Mantel

Hello, Dear Ones! Well, Fall is almost here and I thought I would show you my den mantel before I poked pun'kins and stuff all over it!
We still are using our old chairs for now. One day we'll get new ones but not today. My decor on the shelves has sorta stayed the same.
I used bird stuff up on the mantel and changed out the plates on each side of the mirror. I'm loving that I can change out the plates with the seasons.
I got these little lanterns last year and I just love them. There have battery operated candles in them and when turned on they flicker! I love flickering!
Now most of you have seen my wreath I made many years ago with my shabby fabric roses. I love these little vintage bird figurines. Those two on each side of the books are the same but one has been painted with a heavier hand.
A close up so you can see all of the bird cuteness.
The area on the left hand side. You can see the lantern better and the bird plate I've used. Oh, my little hearth cricket decided to join the birds! :) He'd better watch out, he could become dinner!
Here is the right side.
We changed the bulbs out in the little spotlights over the fireplace and they seem to be much brighter. My snap looks a little washed out. It's really not this bright in person, but the birds are loving the attention so I will give it to them for now! I'm not telling them their little bird days are numbered! ;)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Three Little Birds

 "Don't worry about a thing
'Cause every little thing gonna be alright
Singing' "Don't worry about a thing
'Cause every little thing gonna be alright!"
Rise up this mornin'
Smiled with the risin' sun
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin' sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true
Saying', ("This is my message to you")
Singing' "Don't worry 'bout a thing
'Cause every little thing gonna be alright."
Singing' "Don't worry (don't worry) 'bout a thing
'Cause every little thing gonna be alright!"
Rise up this mornin'
Smiled with the risin' sun
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin' sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true
Sayin', "This is my message to you"
Singin' "Don't worry about a thing, worry about a thing, oh!
Every little thing gonna be alright. Don't worry!"
Singin' "Don't worry about a thing" I won't worry!
"'Cause every little thing gonna be alright."
Singin' "Don't worry about a thing
'Cause every little thing gonna be alright" I won't worry!
Singin' "Don't worry about a thing
Cause every little thing gonna be alright."
Singin' "Don't worry about a thing, oh no!
'Cause every little thing gonna be alright!
