In my neck o’ the woods, Fall means cotton blooms and then cotton bolls growing in the fields; cotton harvesting and cotton ginning. So, my first Fall mantel this year is all about cotton.

Last week, I shared with you that a French village moved onto our mantel when I put away the summer décor. The French villagers are now welcoming Fall.
Leaves, acorns, gourds, pumpkins and pinecones have shown up all over the village.
The French villagers are looking forward to a little nip in the air.
I am gradually adding a touch of Fall to our home. The sideboard behind our sofa moved into Fall this weekend.
There’s a young girl, gathering grapes on one end of the buffet.
A grape-gathering young boy is eying her from the other end of the buffet.
Plaid ribbons and pumpkins adorn books, and...
Wreaths of Fall berries and leaves hang on the edges of books...
and on the lampshade too.Even my Mother’s glass dog bookends are sporting burlap bows for the season.
A side table in the family room also got a touch of Fall.
I ordered the adorable framed piece several years ago from Kristen’s Creations.
My vintage dust pan is hanging on a door with a display of faux Fall leaves.
Are you “falling” at your house yet?

I hope my plates on the mantel are okay for Cuisine Kathleen’s Let’s Dish link up, and I'm linking to Censational Girl's Fall Mantel Party. I am not positive about the maker of the brown leaf-bordered plates, but with the help of a magnifying glass, it appears to read “The Mane Lion-Made in Italy”. I think I purchased them on One Kings Lane. My home-made leaf placemats provide the background for our
Fall mantel. Thank you for visiting my blog. laurie
