THE FALL MANTEL AT ESTELLE'S



We all love the thought of coming home to comfortable living. 
What are your plans for your holiday home this year?


This was the finished look when I made my first attempt.
Yes...I was pleased, I thought......


Loved the burlap ribbon I found....
wrapped the candles already on hand,
which I use year after year!


I fell in love with this little woodland owl.....
too cute! 


Are you loving white pumpkins this year?
I sure do! 


A mix of pumpkin orange and deep chocolate brown candles....


New florals.....
arranged in my favorite glass tortise shell vase.


A bit of glitz and glam...


This can carry us through Thanksgiving.....


A reminder of what the harvest season is all about


The darling little gray fox is part of a pair...


The poetry of autumn


I can almost smell the turkey and dressing, can't you?
Grateful hearts gather here.......

  1. Estelle... your mantel looks gorgeous. Love the layers and different heights. Wish I still lived in Mckinney - I would ask you to work on mine.

  5. Gorgeous.......

    Love that little owl....

    Last photo... Long mirror with little girl painting on end.... I have one of those. But the pictures are placed, so the mirror is put diagonally on a wall. :-)
