Fall fireplace

My Fall decorating moved from the porch to the fireplace this weekend.
I wanted to anchor the mantel with a large something before layering Fallish things around it. I tried both a window pane & mirror, before settling on a beautiful clock that I found at Kirklands.

The window seemed too lightweight. Maybe an option for next summer.
I liked the darkness of this mirror, but it's just not practical that high.
The richness of color & hammered details really sold me on this clock.
I used red urns (for lack of a better word) & a green platter for a pop of color before adding my Fall swag in front.
The lamp & candlesticks add a sense of warmth & homeyness.
I'll probably sit a bucket of firewood on the hearth...
even if it's only for decoration purposes.
I'd be kidding myself to think that we'll actually need it any time soon.

I'm linking up here


  1. I would love to be able to put a lamp on my mantel. How did you hide the plug? Gorgeous colors used.

  2. Love your clock, it is gorgeous and the perfect anchor. The lamp and candles are so pretty with the finials and platter. It looks fabulous. Hugs, Marty

  3. Great choice! The clock looks fabulous ;o)

  4. Lori- The lamp is plugged into an outlet that's actually behind the clock. My husband made them install one up there just in case he ever wants to put a t.v. above the fireplace. Ha. We'll cross that bridge when we get there. :)

  5. Thanks Marty - Finial is a much better description!

  6. Alright woman!!!! I'm in love with your mantel!!! It's gorgeous!!!! Can you pretty please tell me where you found your beautiful clock? It's perfect!
