Cottage Mantle

My only mantle is in my Garden Cottage
Please come in and see that the Cottage is ready for Fall

I always make sure I plant cosmo's, marigolds and nasturiums in fall colors to
use for fall bouquets.

vintage seed packets, gourds

vintage minature wheelbarrows hauling pumpkins

Fall harvesting in the garden

Vintage Fall serving tray

A return of the Fall Cloche

Ready for a cup of hot tea and a fire in the fireplace...

Ann, everything about your mantel is wonderful. I love the vintage pottery vases and the miniature wheelbarrow. So many interesting and pretty things to look at. Thank you for showing them to all of us. Now I am going back to look at everything again.

That is so amazingly lovely!
The seed packets, the bunny, the wheelbarrow, just so adorable!

What a lovely look of fall you have going on.
I love the vintage seed package for the gourds and the use of the flower frog for the stand to hold it up.

What a lovely display in your COTTAGE GARDEN! I LOVE the WALL color, your pottery,the vintage seed packets, the cloche filled with guords etc! This is so my style on your mantel. I saw so many items that I use to have similar to yours (brought back memories)but sometimes you let go of a few things! (I did that last year) I love it and your style! Thanks for the beautiful words on my healing post. It meant so much to me! Roxie

Can't wait for cool weather on a daily bases. As much as I love spring this year I am so ready fall days and all it's colors. Seeing your cottage makes me want fall that much more.
