Fall Mantel

Well, I had grand plans to show you guys a tutorial for my bill organizers.  Those grand plans have been flushed down the toilet because genius here deleted the pictures! EEK! Sorry guys!

Instead, I'm going to show you our mantel. We have a beautiful fireplace. It's very unique.

It is so.stinkin'.hard.to.decorate. It's like the mantel that never ends. I must say, though, that I am happy how it turned out!


Why is it so hard to decorate you ask? The two ends are really deep and like I said, it's the mantel that just keeps going and going and going and... Ok you get the point.



The ceiling is also really tall, so I have to have height.  My clock takes up a pretty good bit of space.  I adore that clock. It's even more special because W surprised me with it! The beams you see up there used to be white.  We painted them brown and it adds so much more warmth than the white. 



I love it all falli-fied!



DEEP sides!


I filled the candle holders with spiders for Halloween!


And there's the Apothecary Jar I posted about (here)!


So, even though I want to duke it out with this fireplace, I do love the finished product!


Don't forget to link up to Scraptastic Saturday (here)!  It ends tomorrow at midnight!
