My Mantel Has Fallen!

Hello, Dear Ones! I am continuing with my Falleness at our new to us home! We've lived here about five months and after unpacking I just didn't want to or did I care to get down to decorating but now I'm enjoying it again. I'm learning where I want to place things. Some times it's working and some times it's not! But I think my mantel works and I wanted to show it to you!
 My mirror is still not hanging in the center of the fireplace wall and we are going to move it but I can't do it! Mr. Precious has to get out the huge tall ladder to do it. He will. So...on we go.
The mantle does extend a little bit more on the right side. Strange, huh? 
In the center I've placed this olden vase in an olden glass footed bowl that was my little mothers. I think it is a pun'kin, looks like one to me. Does it look like a pun'kin to you? Well, it's acting as a pun'kin for my mantel! Then I've placed my largest Staffies on either side of the pun'kin vase. They just love playing in the leaves.
I didn't purchase many news items this year but I did buy a couple of these glass pun'kins since this color of blue seems to be showing up a lot in my living room. Pretty, isn't it?
 Then while shopping for pun'kins I found this pretty hand painted one. So pretty. I found this and the teal blue at "At Home", formally Garden Ridge.
 Continuing with my blue and white are a set of candle sticks. The dark "Blue Willow" blue looks nice with the teal blue. Oh, that candle is a dark blue but it shows up rather purpley here.
 Here is the other little hand painted pun'kin! I love these little guys.
 I have three garlands of fallen leaves that are intertwined here and there is a pip berry garland in there too. On the right hand side which is longer, I've placed a bunch of autumn colored dark red roses to try and balance it out.
Okie dokie pokies, there is my living room mantel all Falled up! I'm having fun decorating my new to me house! I just crank down the air conditioning and go to town! :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you a little Note Songs ~

Autumn Leaves


The falling leaves
Drift by the window
The autumn leaves
Of red and gold

I see your lips
The summer kisses
The sunburned hands
I used to hold

Since you went away
The days grow long
And soon I'll hear
Old winter's song

But I miss you most of all
My darling
When autumn leaves
Start to fall

Since you went away
The days grow long
And soon I'll hear
Old winter's song

But I miss you most of all
My darling
When autumn leaves
Start to fall
