Thanksgiving Mantel

We have a lot of trees at my house, which I just love.
They look so bright and pretty in the fall.
But man do they drop a lot of leaves. It's always a big job getting them all raked up.
Good thing I have such great little helpers.

I think we had the biggest leave pile to jump in in all the neighborhood.

Because my leaves were so pretty and colorful I decided to bring them into me home so I could enjoy them even more.
I put some cut branches into glass bottles, and placed up on my mantel.


I mixed in is a couple leftover pumpkins from Halloween, a few cobs of Indian corn, glass bottles and a gold lantern.
I think it looks very Thanksgiving!




 And gotta show the mirror image.  I know I'm so predictable.  Every time I show pictures of my mantle I always have to take a shot from across the room.

Hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving!!

I'm sure I'll be back before then, but if not I just want to say,
 Thank You for reading my blog.
You are one of the many things I am so Grateful for.
