Fall mantle: Squirrels and Owls, oh my


Decided to decorate the mantle for fall and came up with this: Squirrels & Owls! LOL!  These guys have names, Nutsy, Chunk & Sassy! It is official, more than 3 is a collection!






Here it is and the banner is from a swap from Shirley a couple of years ago. She is an artist in my mind! Next month the mantle will be loaded with pumpkins and a couple vintage Halloween pieces.

I am going to have my garage sale on Thursday.  LOTS of treasures will be for sale for those of you who live in the area! 9-5!!!

The weather has been wonderful!! I love days like these. I love how God made seasons, of which Fall is my FAVORITE!

Have you started decorating for fall?
warmly,
deb

My daughter is so ready to decorate for fall. It's still pretty hot here, but we will start adding fall colors around the house.

I love that squirrel picture. Your mantle looks great. Yea I'm decorating for fall, even though it's still in the 90's. I just tell myself to patient. Happy Labor Day!

Love your mantle! I want to put my Fall stuff out, but it is still in the 80's here in my part of Ohio.

Hello dear friend...it has been awhile. I adore your fall decor! :)

Oh the squirrels make me smile on this stormy Minnesota morning. Love your mantel! Wish I could attend your awesome garage sale. We share many of the same passions for fun collecting. I will be distributing school uniforms to North Minneapolis students that day. It is just one of the program's supported by The Assistance League Thrift shop. I hope you have a beautiful day and a great turnout for your sale. If you need a place to share you leftovers, the shop in Richfield would appreciate taking them. Email me if you want more details.

Oh, your fall mantle is just adorable! I love the squirrels and owls theme and I saw the cutest ones made of a straw-like material at Walmart last week. I just LOVE fall and am hoping to get my newly painted fireplace decked out this weekend!

What a cute idea for decorating! Although squirrels are an annoying part of my garden, they are adorable on your mantel! And who doesn't just love owls? I have started decorating and I need to get a banner!

I need to go to a good vintage garage sale before winter sets in if it does this year.
I feed my squirrels everyday to keep them from running back and forth my street and getting run over. However they keep running back and forth. I only have one now.

I don't do any fall decorating as so many bloggers do. I still want spring and summer

I will start decorating next week. I will have to move nearer you so I can find such glorious estate and yard sales etc. Why not post the furniture too,.

Michele said...

Deb, we don't have a mantel, but I was just thinking it's time to clear off the top of a bookcase to decorate with squirrels. Great minds think alike!

Joy H said...

Love your fall mantel and the little squirrels. Really ready for some cooler temps and
sweater weather. So sorry to hear about your friend. My Mom lost her friend of 70 years a few months back. So sad.

Christie said...

Happy Fall Deb! Your fall mantle looks so cute...love the little squirrels on display. I will be looking forward to seeing more of your decor and your parade of pumpkins on your mantel too! It's so great to catch up with you. I've missed you girl :)
Big Hugs!
