Autumn Mantlescape

I've had the things for my fall mantlescape since August, but I have yet to put it all together until this week.  I have just been so busy with work and other things.  I really didn't intend for it to look like it turned out, but I am rather pleased with it.  :) 




I used many of my "old things", including my wreath, garland, candlesticks and book boxes.  The only new things I bought this year were the metal pumpkins from Kirkland's and the mesh pumpkins from Dollar General.  Can you believe these mesh pumpkins were only FOUR dollars each??  LOVE them sitting on top of the Kirkland's Caramel Swirl candlesticks.  These are the most versatile candlesticks I have ever owned.  They are perfect for every season!

I took a picture of the tag so everyone would believe me!!  FOUR dollars!!!!
It's probably a little much for some people's taste, but I love me some stuff, stuff, stuff!!!  I love the sparkle and shine all the different pieces have!  I'll probably tweak it a little for Halloween, but this is how it will be for now and in November. 



I'm linking up to Debbie Doo's Newbie Party and also to The Fall Linky Party starting over at the Lettered Cottage!
