Fall Mantle

It seems like everyone but me has a fireplace mantle to decorate for the holidays.

Actually, when me and the hubby were "house shopping," we almost bought a house with a fireplace.
And a large kitchen with a built-in island.
A living room the size of my house.
Unfortunately, the owners put renters into the house right before we were going to close on the house. Renters need 60 days of notice before kicking them out on the street in our state.
Would I buy a house only to have random people living in it for two months?
No...not a chance.

Anyways, back on track!

Since I have no fireplace in my house, I decided that my new entertainment center had a pretty good fireplace-type mantle on it.
That'll do.

So I decorated my "mantle" for Autumn.

I also want to show you the subject of my next project:

Just a basket.

I'm going to turn this basket into something hugely functional.

If you're an organizing freak like me, come back to see what I did with an ordinary basket!

I'm also well aware that my house needs a good dusting. Holy wah, dust bunnies multiply faster than real bunnies.

P.S. 10-in-10 recap will be coming as soon as a link-up is available from the host!


  1. I'm in the same boat on this one. All I have is a thin shelf type thing attached to the wall to act as my "fantle". It's still fun to decorate though. I'm your newest follower by the way!
