Fall Mantel Decorated with Pumpkins and Family Heirlooms

Let me begin with the following disclaimer: I am NOT an interior decorator. I think our home is decorated in a traditional sense but on a simple scale.

I didn't have a blog post previously prepared, but I've been collecting these links for a couple of days and thought I'd share them with you. Here are five things happening right now: 1.
