I decorated my mantel simply and in neutral colors because of the wooden cubby on the wall near it.
I wanted the room to look quiet and peaceful not overly busy.
But I've made a small change to my mantel since this post.
Can you tell what it is?
Yes, a lovely white pumpkin just "jumped" into my cart on a quick trip to Safeway.
I think it was just the finishing touch my autumn mantel needed.
I also added some larger music page leaves to the arrangement in Mama's old bean pot.
I can't believe it's going to be November this week!
November's going to be a big month in our family.
My middle daughter and two grandbabies will be arriving here on Thanksgiving day,
(my son-in-law will come closer to Christmas).
The following week our youngest grand baby will celebrate her first birthday.
Then, the race to Christmas begins!
It will be wonderful having all of my daughters, sons-in-law, and grandchildren here for the holidays.
My oldest granddaughter is very excited that she will be here to help me decorate and bake and I will enjoy having her help.
I hope my white pumpkin survives through Thanksgiving.
Later this week, I have a quick and easy Thanksgiving Pottery Barn "knock off" idea I'll be showing you.
I've got the news on while I'm blogging, watching the storm coverage from the east coast.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of you affected.
