Hello, friends! And welcome!! Today I've got a real treat for you with lots of great ideas for fall decorating and diy's plus some yummy fall recipes.


It's the annual Fall Ideas Tour, and this year there are 26 of us bloggers sharing some of our best with you. The tour is going on all week and you'll have something new to look forward to each day. The full lineup is at the bottom of the post. Be sure to visit all of my talented blogging friends!


If you're visiting from my touring friends and are new here today, you can go HERE to learn more about this site.


I'm sharing my rustic, vintage themed fall mantel with you. It's an eclectic,cozy mix of mostly vintage items with a few newer pieces that have a timeworn look.


fall fireplace and mantel decor


Two things I've been crushing on lately, the color green and antique botanicals, are the focus of this year's fireplace mantel. I know, green isn't really a traditional fall color, but I'm okay with that. 


old copper tub with fall decor

The copper tub adds a warm and metallic punch to the fireplace and complements the green perfectly. Plus it has some of that warm traditional autumn color. The green throw blanket and blanket scarf  have a nice soft texture against the cold metal. (similar copper tub found HERE or HERE)

A few pumpkins add a bit more fall flair, and the rusty vintage iron fence sections have a nice warm hue to them.

The fall decor with the green theme even spilled over to my vintage bar cart.

On the other side of the hearth a couple of metal candle lanterns (from my shop), vintage books, and an old wooden crate full of dried hydrangeas infuse more of the vintage, rustic vibe.  (My simple tutorial for how to dry hydrangeas is found HERE.)

Up on the mantel, there's lots of patina with the vintage books, found wood candlesticks, and the painted piece of wood moulding. And the vintage oak leaf botanicals add that green that I'm loving so much these days.



More rusty metal with the little vintage tin tile plaques. I seem to have a thing for rusty metal too. Have you noticed? What can I say. I love things with character!

The oak leaf scientific illustrations are from a collection that dates back to 1841-1849. I'm obsessed with this type of vintage illustration and find myself spending way too much time researching them and admiring them.

Back in the spring I shared some floral botanicals and a simple tutorial for framing them like these oak leaf prints. You can see how to do it HERE.

  14. Beautiful fall decor! I love green so much my living room and dining room walls are a warm medium green and I love it. I find that it works with pretty much all colors (just as all flowers have green leaves!)and all seasonal decor from spring through Christmas. I think of green as very much a neutral.
