{a cozy new mantel}

Don’t you just adore autumn – the crispness of the air, the pretty sunsets, the yummy food (soups, stews, baking…YuM!!)

the only thing I don’t really like about it is that it is right before winter (snow, boots, shoveling, ugh!)

But I do love the cozy feel of autumn!!

In our cottage, it starts with the mantel…

We have a wonderful stone fireplace that goes floor to ceiling (right up to the top of our cathedral ceiling in our main living space).  What a delight it is that we, literally, get to keep the home fires burning.

I’m so very thankful that we get to call this place home….we get to have this soft place to land at the end of a busy day full of outside stresses.

There’s nothing that could be much better than snuggling up with a {quilt} with a roaring fire nearby surrounded by loved ones ♥

  1. beautifully arranged...I LOVE old crates....Christine from Little Brags

  2. Your fireplace is beautiful! I like how the blue plates and metal bucket pick up the colors in the field stone! So pretty!


  3. I think my favourite touch is adding the rolls or twine to the mantel- so unexpected and such great texture!! Totally creative:)

  4. I agree with krista, the twine really adds texture and is a bit different. Very nice! Your fireplace reminds me a little of ours...same type of rocks I believe.

    Stopping by from CLH. Have a great week!
