Being that it was too rainy to hike yesterday - and Saturday was all about the Michigan State/Michigan game (Michigan State won, btw, woo hoo!) - we worked on a few home projects yesterday.
My fireplace is finally complete - not as full as last year, but still helps things to look comfy and cozy as the days get shorter, and Thanksgiving approaches :)
(Even though the chimney sweep is coming tomorrow, so I'm going to have to move all of that, then put it back, when he's done lol.)
I ordered two more of the mason-jar lanterns like the one on the mantel ...
... and put tiny pumpkins, pine cones, and acorns in them, too, for the kitchen bar.
I also got this window mirror and shutters a few weeks ago for our dining room, which is on the opposite wall to the windows and a bit dark, hoping to reflect more light, which Mark put up this past weekend, I already had the wreath, which was a bit skimpy, so I just added a few trinkets :)
I also added more color, particularly red, to the wreath that I fully made that hangs on the balcony door, to give it more pop from the street, as it wasn't showing up as well from far away.
At first, I added too much red, so I removed some - but I still think it's almost too much red/too much going on now?
I think I liked it better before, at least close up, even though it doesn't show up as well from the street ...
Ah well, I can always take the added red leaves off, I'll think more on it :)
Happy Fall, Y'all!
