Well hello, and happy happy fall y’all. Let’s kick of the mantel par-tay hosted by Layla with a few changes in the living room. You’ll see the addition of a floor to ceiling oak tree branch, a new burnt orange throw, and a few decorative new accents too.
Call me trendy, but yes there are owls on my mantel this season.
Double trendy points for the golden hue. I spotted that cool moss covered nine foot tall branch at a local shop specializing in second hand midcentury decor – it was covered with woodland ornaments and I just loved the shape of it. I asked the owner if he’d give or sell it to me and he said he’d let me have it for free as long as I agreed to buy something in the shop. Deal! I choose the 1970’s golden owls ($20 for the pair) – a fun seasonal score.
The tall amber bottle I found at another local second hand shop, and the lantern is from World Market. On the other side of the mantel are some birch inspired vessels, found at a local shop here in my town.
