Fall Mantel 2012 Edition

It’s that time again.  Time to decorate the mantel in its fall best.

DecorandtheDog Mantel 2012-1



This year I went with a sexy librarian/quirky owl theme.  Or old lady clutter.  Either way.  I like it.


I stole books (in fall colors) from our office.  Hooray for in home shopping.  The owl on the left is from TJMaxx (last season).  (I used it last year's fall mantel.)  The owl on the right is from Menard’s.  The clock was also stolen from the office.  It was originally purchased from an antique store. 


Is your house ready for fall?  Have you turned the heat on yet?  We were tempted this week-end but toughed it out.  Are you digging the sexy librarian/quirky owl theme?  I need to trademark that one.  A Décor and the Dog original.
