Hey there, friends.

What's happening?  Can you believe we are more than half way through September already?!?

I totally can't!

Since this season is my favorite and it seems to fly by I try to get my pumpkins out in the first week of September.  This year I did some tweaking to my Fall mantel because I added an aqua table to my family room.  I also didn't want to spend a lot of money (surprise!) so I basically rearranged stuff I already had.

The only thing I purchased for my mantel this year is the cutie aqua chevron burlap ribbon half off at Hobby Lobby.

This is one of those old wreaths I've had forever that was this close to going in the garage sale this Spring.  I'm glad I didn't sell it!  I haphazardly wrapped the chevron ribbon around this old wreath to give it some color.

I'm SO proud that I grew these little pumpkins in my garden with my very black thumbs!  The best part is that they are the perfect size for my candlesticks!

 The smallest pumpkin on the candlestick on the right was attacked by some crazy varmint while sitting on my back porch one night.  The back of it is all scarred up but this pumpkin is a survivor, that varmint didn't have a chance! Lucky for me he only got one side of it.

To Fall-ify my fireplace hearth I added some faux pumpkins to my big Target basket and wrote "Harvest" on the chalkboard label.  I'm sure people will really think that I harvested those plastic pumpkins but whatever, it looks pretty cute I think.  I stuck a couple more fake pumpkins in my lantern.  I'm thinking I need a bow or something on there to add some color.  We'll see....

I really like the touch of aqua in my fall decor.  I'm excited to share the rest of the room with you soon.  

Did you use any nontraditional colors this Fall??
