An Autumn Mantle

 I finally got one of my mantles decorated for Fall.  It was really hard to get good photos of it.

 This year, I used two vintage boudoir lights I bought at auction years ago.

 I am heading out to a barn sale in a quaint little town and am hoping to have some good pics to post tomorrow.

 Glass pumpkins and mini lights are the key to the sparkle!

 My carved witches from Salem guard the pumpkins.

 I need new bulbs that are not so bright for the lamps.

 I have this on a switch so I can easily turn it on and off.

 The cold front is slowly heading towards us and I can't wait for some cooler days.

Back tomorrow!

You did a beautiful job of decorating your mantel. The boudoir lamps are perfect. The starburst designs etched on the shades is quite magical looking. There is nothing like glass & light to draw one's attention & hold it. Just lovely Joyce.

Is the cold front coming down from Canada? We've got snow here in Alberta already -- Calgary and the mountain parks got hammered but we escaped the worst of it in Edmonton.
