Almost Autumn Mantel

Less than 2 weeks until autumn begins.  I've been tinkering on the mantel to create an 'Almost Autumn' mantel.  It's still too hot to go into the attic to bring out the fall decorations.
Here's what I came up with.
A little bit of this 'n that.
I'll do a tutorial on this book stack tomorrow.
It's a Pinterest inspiration.
Almost Autumn . . . 12 days & counting!

Love it, how fun and so pretty. The saying on the books is just the most clever idea. I would love for you to link up to my Inspire Me party this afternoon. www.astrollthrulife.net. Hugs, Marty

Almost Autumn looks charming on your mantel. Clever idea for book spines.

So cute! Love the little red schoolhouse/birdhouse. It's looking very festive!

I love that you used a tablerunner on your mantel -- who ever thought they were just for tables, anyway! I really like the book stack being used like a chalkboard. I read your tutorial & think that is very clever!
