I had to do it part 2

I have three mantles in this house.. I love the challenge of decorating a mantle…. times 3.

I made the autumn banner last year and used it on a different mantle. This year it is perfectly

at home in the living room.

I have started collecting Johnson Brothers  “The Friendly Village” china.  They would be perfect for Thanksgiving,

but I only have 2 plates so far. Good for decorating the mantle. ……

See why I had to do it?  The decorating I mean.  It sets the mood for cool fall nights, enjoying the

fireplace, sipping hot cider. Now all we’re waiting for is the humidity and temperature to cooperate.
