And..........Happy Halloween! Are you all ready for the trick or treaters tonight? I will be, just as soon as I run to the store. Can you believe that I am just now buying candy?! I have never waited this late to buy it, but must say that I'm glad it wasn't in the house all month tempting me.
We are finally starting to get some Fall color around here. These are some trees behind our house.
Recently, I did a little shopping at an antique store near my house and came across something that I never expected. I found an old painted garden gate leaning up against the wall and decided it might look good somewhere in my home. I brought it home and propped it above my fireplace mantel where it has been ever since.
I fell in love with the old chippy paint and rusty wire. It even has old hardware on it.
The wood isn't in perfect condition but that is another thing I like about it.
I love that it looks like it came from an old farm or something.
If it had been any bigger I wouldn't have been able to use it above my mantel. It's a great statement piece for the room yet flows with the rest of the space.
I took this picture at night, but it gives you more perspective of how it looks in the room from further away.
The mirror, that was over the mantel, is now in another room. I will share that with you another day.
Now, it's time to get busy carving the pumpkins!
Hope you have a great Halloween today.
