Fall Mantle ~ How to Decorate

Fall Mantle.1

Crisp cool air.  Apples. Indian Corn. Sunflowers. Pumpkins. Leaves… Next to Christmas, Fall is my favorite time of the year to decorate the house.

OK, so you all probably think I have gone crazy! Decorating with a Chicken Feeder? A few weeks back, Doug and I visited his Dad, and family to “go thru” the barns and choose what we wanted to keep, as the farm has sold. Let me tell you! I was like a kid in a […]
