Have I told you guys yet how much I am loving having two fireplaces in our new house? We haven’t used either for heating purposes yet, and only one is currently functional, but I am enjoying styling the other one with the wooden mantel above. This is the first home I have ever lived with real fireplaces. I have always wanted at least one, and now I have two!
In our previous home, you may know how much I loved decorating my salvaged mantel. I still have it and just got it moved out of storage over the weekend. I have no idea where it will end up in the new house yet. It may even end up on Craigslist, if I can’t find a space for it!
The rest of the mantel is decorated with draped black cheesecloth, a black wire tree that my husband had before we were married (I only break it out at Halloween – here is a similar one on Amazon), a little candy corn cat, stacked old books, vintage brass candlesticks with flameless candles, silver glittered pumpkins, and a couple of rubber rats that I spray painted silver. There are also a couple of mini white pumpkins, silver and black tinsel garland and a black glittered owl with glowing eyes.
Only one week left till Halloween! Sometimes, I wish I could get the motivation to do all this decorating well in advance and get these posts out sooner, but I guess I never really “get into it” until later in the season. Hopefully, I will get in the mood for Thanksgiving decorating soon! That will be here before we know it. And baby Violet’s birthday is on the 12th so it will be a busy November in our new home!
