My Fall Mantel 2012

I actually decorated my fireplace mantel this year for Fall! This blogging gig has definitely given me the push I needed to do the things I love and make my house, my home. Everyone should love their home. I picked up some wonderful decorative items from the furniture store I work part-time at. Here they are! Aren't they great?!

I picked up an orange vase at the local Goodwill for something like $3.00. As soon as I saw it I knew I was going to put it to good use. I also picked up a cute little green milk can at Wal-Mart, along with a harvest sign. My very generous sister had given me LOTS of pumpkins (for primping) so I was set. Now, I will be completely honest...I have NEVER decorated for Fall before. Ever. Never. And why? I don't know. Fall is my favorite time of year, so why wouldn't I want to decorate and bring that into my home? Crazy, I know. Well, all that has changed. I am hooked now! Take a look at what I did!

Here is the milk can side...

So what do you think? Did I do okay for being a first timer? Do you decorate for Fall? Man, I was missing out! Thanks for taking the time to look at (my) The Finishing Touches!

Thank you for stopping by! Please come again!
