Fireplace Hearth decorated for Thanksgiving

This year, our Thanksgiving fireplace d├ęcor reminds us there is always a reason to give thanks. 

Thanksgiving Decor on the Hearth

Faux leaves and pumpkins decorate each end of the hearth.

Thanksgiving Mantel Decor

I've had this Hydrangea swag for a long time, and it's starting to show its age. So, instead of hanging it, I laid it across the mantel and filled bare spots with Hydrangeas I had dried.

Leaf with Bling for Thanksgivig decor

Each lamp on the mantel is decorated with a gold, glittered leaf ornament.

The metal sign was a gift from a friend last year.

Pilgrim Figure on Mantel

Years ago, I bought this pilgrim couple when they were marked down at Hobby Lobby.

Pilgrim Children in Prayer for Thanksgiving Mantel Decor

The pilgrim couple's children have gone into the shed to give thanks. These were part of a floral arrangement my sister and I sent our mother one year.

Fireplace Mantel Thanksgiving Decor

I wound a battery-powered string of tiny lights through the Hydrangeas. My daughter gave me the banner for a long-ago birthday.


 In everything, give thanks. A good message for not only Thanksgiving, but for every day.
Today, I'm giving thanks for you who stop by to visit my little place in this big internet world.
 Partying with Met Monday at Between Naps on the Porch, Monday Social at My Heart Lives Here, and Inspire Me Tuesday at A Stroll Thru Life, and Fabulous Fall at Our Holiday Journey.

Just perfect. You have a gift for knowing how to place things. I have a precious friend who moved to Texas who can work miracles with a roll of duct tape, a piece of string and a bare branch. She also has that gift of perfect placement. I can truly appreciate AND envy that gift.

Always fun to see your holiday decor. I put out a few turkeys on the back entrance and have my velvet and needlepoint pumpkins out and about. That's about it! Happy Fall.

Your mantel is lovely. I don't decorate for fall other than a few pumpkins...Christmas is my decorating time...and I have cut waaay back on that, too. :)
