Is Summer Almost Over?!?

I don't know about you, but in my neck of the woods it is still H.O.T!! Maybe the hottest weather we've had all summer. Crazy. I don't care, I am ready to decorate my house for fall! Fall is my favorite time of the year! Seriously. Having just moved here to TN last December from FL, I completely missed fall and jumped right into winter :(

I grew up in Canada, so fall to me means crisp cool mornings, thick sweaters, apple picking, the smell of school bus exhaust (ha), Labor Day, Indian summer. I Love It. Period. Cooler days are ahead, I just know it. And soon those beautiful fall colors will make their appearance. For now, I decorate!

So I changed up my mantle this morning from summer to fall. It was kinda sad to put away the dreamy blues and seashells of summer BUT I was super excited about the new pumpkins I made and eager to get them displayed. I'm not really crazy about orange and have wholly embraced the white pumpkin craze. Without further adieu, here are my mantles:

Do you have a favorite??

  1. Hey Cindy!
    Awesome - Fall is already here up in Canada. The evenings are starting to get dark faster and the breeze is often cool - great for a stroll with someone you love (.or 5 of them).
    Your Fall mantle looks great! Nice work.


    1. Thanks Chad, I'm jealous for cooler weather...I'll send some heat your way, you send the coolness our way, kay? Thanks for your kind comments! Hugs to the kids and baby momma :)

  2. Both versions are really pretty! And what a cute fall banner! I just can't believe summer is over already!

    1. Thank you Sharon, I made the banner several years ago and it's held up really well. I for one am ready for fall!

  3. I love them both! I really love the banner though! Very creative and you've given me some ideas for my mantle. Found you through the Pin Junkie's link party.

    1. Thanks so much Lisa! I always love when someone leaves a comment to say they were inspired! Good luck with your mantle :)
