Fall Mantel 2011 Newbie party started!~

hey ,hey ,hey there, sorry I am late.
 Been a crazy hectic weekend if you been reading.
Glad to have you here this week for the newbie party.
Finally my Fall mantel is complete!  
I took some different elements from my inspiration a few weeks back you may recall.

I loved the live greenery, which I have a plenty of in our backyard.

And I loved the twigs which I have had this vine for years and never used it.
Glad I hold onto things...
better known as Hoarder!

I also loved the fullness of this last one...

So this is what I came up with....

This stuff (vine) is not fun to work with, finally figured it out!
Also, this old sessions clock is always a decorating dilemma.
You see my husband loves this clock he purchased off of ebay several years ago.
The one time I moved it to decorate the Christmas mantel, the leg broke.
Since then, I am forbidden to move it.

Lots of Fall packed on this mantel...
you know I am not a sparse person!

Look I have my white pumpkins...FAUX of course, I could not wait another second!

Just playing with my pics now....

Our family room is ready for Fall!
The clock seems to work in OK..I suppose there is no choice...unless it accidentally falls off the mantel,
hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...JK, I am not that evil! really

Now onto Halloween soon.....
Although, I am just showing this to you now, I have had my Fall mantel up for a while, so we did get to enjoy it.
Halloween is my fun one!
Enjoy the season!

Thanks for stopping by and your kind comments.

You did it again - out done yourself, that is. That grapevine does not look easy to work with, but you showed it who's the boss! Thanks for hosting the party, always so fun to see what everyone is up to.

Very Pretty - and I like the clock in with the Fall decor. So far no Fall decorations here - maybe soon. I bet your son is really excited about their big win. :D

What a GOREGOUS mantle Debbie. I love the autumn colors but I don't decorate, redecorate I mean, until Christmas.

Have a beautiful week.

Beautiful mantel Debbie. I love the vine you used and it is not easy to work with. I wrapped a Christmas Tree with it one year, yah, a little nuts. And the clock fits in nicely.

Beautiful fall mantel! I love the twiggy vine especially. I think your hubby's mantel clock fits in well :o) My dad is a clock master, so I LOVE to hear the clocks chime and strike when we are visiting... He sets the ones that he restores, repairs or cleans for his customers to chime and strike at various times in his basement workshop.

Blessings & Aloha!
Thank you so much my dear friend for popping over! You are so very sweet! I had to laugh at your comment about "marrying off" your son already :o) Our kids like to bring up the fact that my hubby and I were so young when we married...and I can see why my dad made me give back the ring & wait for at least another year! Sheeesh...we were mere babies, but of course, felt sooo much older! haha Hugs to you my friend!

I really like how you used the grapevine mixed with greenery in your fall decorations. I hadn't thought of that before! Hope you're getting some rest now after your weekend away.

Your mantel looks so pretty! I love the fall/winter seasons and all the holidays:) I can't wait to start decorating for Xmas!!!

Maybe the clock could have a little accident while you're innocently dusting around it:)

OOO, Debbie Doo...I think your (ok, hubby's) clock adds a lot of character to your mantel. Probably no one else has one JUST like it and I love that element in ANYthing.
You mantel is just to die for. I love it. I still have summery things out on my mantels...going to work on that today, I THINK. I am using whites...:)
