Favorite Autumn Mantels!

Autumn is my favorite season!  
The weather gets cooler.
{this is exciting news in Arizona!)
I can drink hot chocolate and wear my beloved sweaters.

And home decor, ah yes, home decor.
but then I love taking that all down and just focusing on the season of Thanksgiving.
I'm in love with muted colors, colors of nature, and natural textures like burlap, wood, leaves, pine cones and gourds.

I've found some amazing inspiration for my home this season.
I hope you find some here too!

The Bungalow Blog
Just look at all these natural textures!
My favorite part is the praying hands pointed towards heaven
and the thankful sentiment on the big frame.  Lovely!

Sweet Something Design
So simple and so elegant.

Tator Tots and Jello
I've been going gaga over this garland for a couple of years now.

thanksgiving mantel
Create. Craft. Love.
Very simple and makes me think of the harvest and gratitude
{my husband is a farmer, so the harvest is important!}

A Diamond In The Stuff
...again filled with gratitude and harvest.
Seriously love the simplicity!

Craftberry Bush
Those shiny platters add so much elegance to the rusticness of the other elements!

Sew Dang Cute
Love that 'fall' banner.
They didn't have a fireplace mantel, so they just made
and mounted their own onto the wall.
Clever and beautiful!

Wood-Chip Wreath
The Stories of A to Z 
via Better Homes and Gardens
Beth's wood chip wreath is AWESOME!!!

Ciao Newport Beach
The softness and glow of this arrangement makes me H.A.P.P.Y.!
Soooo in love with every one of these pumpkins!!!

Autumn fireplace mantel
Just good old-fashioned fall colors.  So warm and inviting.

A Place For Us
My friend Destiny created those amazing paper flowers
and got a lot of SERIOUS attention for them!
She appeared on the Nate Berkus show last year, and I was just beaming for her!
This whole arrangement is beautiful!
{check out her whole blog....she rocks the home decor!}

Joys of Home
Joys of home is RIGHT!
More of those good old-fashioned colors
that invite you right in to sit down by the fire.
Swooning over that chippy window frame!!
{hey, just realized their crown molding is chippy too...
OMGosh!  Love it!!!}

**My Desert Cottage**
My Desert Cottage
I'm soooo into white!
I want it everywhere!!!
I have it nowhere!!!
I plan on changing that!!!

TomKat Studios with free printable
This is not a mantel, but honestly, don't you think it deserves an honorable mention???
The cabinet, the banner, the pom poms, the Amazonian acorns.......
Kim from TomKat is ridiculously talented!!!

So there you have it, this season's favorites!
I'm sure from now til Thanksgiving I'll spot several more that will blow me away.
If they are super amazing, I may just have to add them later to this post.
I have lots of other autumn gorgeousness on my
Autumn Awesomeness pin board.
Check it out!

My next project, besides nailing down my mantel
is creating a box centerpiece worthy of rusty nails!

I cannot believe that yesterday I scored this gorgeous beauty at
the Junk In The Trunk marketplace!
It's exactly what I was looking for,
but had just about given up hope and was going to make my own.
Old, chippy, rusty is waaaay better!

Here are the other gems I scored at the market.
I'm a happy girl! 

Happy Fall Y'All!!!
