Hope everyone had a good week. My daughter came for a visit, and I didn't have time to post until now!! I'm finally finished with my mantle In the living room. It took me awhile to decide how I was going to decorate It this year. I did change things around just a little.
I had this old piece of plywood In the garage. I painted It, and sanded around the edges. I wanted a rustic look for fall. To dress it up I added the basket that I had, and filled It with fall picks. Lots of pinecones, and gourds too!!
The lanterns I bought at Home goods fit right In with the rustic look. I added some orange candles, and colored leaves. Just a little touch of silver too!!
I have been married for 45
years.I met my husband when i was sixteen years old.We have one wonderful daughter who lives in long Island New York.I have just retired.It's wonderful to just stay home and have more time to do the things i love.My favorite things are going treasure hunting at thrift shops, estate sales, garage sales. I love looking for old treasures, and bringing them back to life.
