“Life starts over again when it gets crisp in the fall.”
– F. Scott Fitzgerald
In our house fall is kind of a big deal. Fall means pumpkin spice everything and time for football. Greg and I are two, big football fans ourselves (Go Mizzou!) and Greg lives, eats and breathes football as part of his job at Dave Campbell’s Texas Football (texasfootball.com).
As a kid, I loved spending Saturdays raking leaves and jumping in piles of them. Now that I’m grown (as much fun as jumping in a big pile of leaves would be) I wait a little bit longer for fall to arrive. In Texas, fall slowly creeps in by November, so fall decor helps me have those cool, crisp air vibes just a little sooner.
Here are a few pictures of fall at our house last year (first year in our house):
But as many of you know, my favorite place to decorate is the mantel. Any season, any holiday. It is the focal point of our home and its my favorite place to create!
Here are some pictures of our October/Halloween mantel:
