Fall Mantel 2014

Aaah, fall.  Despite my protestations, it has arrived.  The mornings are a little brisker walking the dog and the nights a little cooler. The leaves have begun to change color and fall to the ground in hues of orange, yellow and red. My mantel is celebrating fall!  As many of you know, I LOVE shades of […]
