November Mantel & Giveaway Reminder!

Once Halloween was over, I decided to change up my mantel just a bit. (You can see my October mantel here.)



I wanted to keep the colors neutral; using mostly creams, whites and browns.

 
 
 
I repurposed my clay pot, white pumpkin with rusted leaf and zinc pot with sticks.
 




These white pumpkins were a few of the real pumpkins I bought for the autumn season.




I can't do without my favorite wire cloche. This time I added in some found birch branches and placed it all in this cool wooden box I bought at a favorite store of mine for just a few dollars.




Don't you just love the age on this clay pot and saucer?




That faux chocolate turkey is probably the only true Thanksgiving decoration I have. I bought it years ago and think it's so cute!  I placed it (along with the clay pot) on top of some of my antique books.




I recently bought the large glass container at a local store.  I filled it with more antique books.

 
 
 
 
 
For a little pop of color I added in the bittersweet wreath I made. You can find instructions for it here.


 
I love this time of year!
 
And, just a reminder that there are still a few days left to enter the Ramsign giveaway.  You can find all the details in this post.
