Fall Mantle 2012 Edition

We had a crap ton of rain over the weekend.
Being from Texas you are never supposed to complain when it rains, you know because we live in a drought state and all.

My Mom and I certainly did NOT let it stop us from shopping at Canton.

This place is huge and apparently no one else considered the rain a deal breaker because everyone and their dog {literally, they bring them in little strollers} was there.

The rain brought cooler weather and it really felt like Fall, so I decided to finally change my mantle :)

First, I had to bust out some glitter and bring a little happiness to this dead goat.
It is a goat right?

I also bought some wooden letters and painted them up.

I'm really loving the letters, they are large enough to make an impact on this giant wall.

This cute paper decor is from Ali's fun Etsy Shop, perfect amount of sparkle!

I found this skull at HomeGoods and he didn't have a price and it was the last one.
The girl ringing me up was all 'how about 14 buck' ummmm OK! 
I'm pretty sure he was at least 30.

It's not quite as colorful as last years mantle.

I just realized I have no idea where that glitter owl is.
Hmmm I gonna have to send the husband back into the attic and search around :)

Happy Tuesday!


  1. OMG I love love love Canton! I was supposed to drive in and go with my sister but the rain held me off. I hate I missed it but we are planning on going in November. It is super crowded but oh so fun.
