Not a Mantle

As I was blog hopping today, I saw that some were showing off their fall mantles and some showing off their faux mantles. I don't have a mantle here in Chicago but I do have flat spaces that really aren't faux mantles either. Here are a few pictures of me making the most of what this little apartment has to offer...

The hutch in my dining area that houses quite a few of my pretties that I just had to bring with me. (Dishes, milk glass, platters, etc.)

You've seen some close ups of a few of the pieces on the hutch but not these. The pitcher, I think I've shown you last year. My son-in-law's grandmother gave me the pretty pitcher. While hubby's sister was here visiting last week, I came across this little acorn, which actually houses a candle, at Bath and Body.

I HAD to bring at least one rooster with me. He's one of my favorites because he's so colorful. He is perched on an elevated counter between my kitchen and the living room.

A close up of my berry surrounded candle holder. I love this!

I have been enjoying seeing everyone's fall decor. Hope you enjoyed your visit. I want to welcome my new followers! It makes my day when I get a new follower! :-D

Have a great day!!!

You already know how much I love your plate decor! You're doing a wonderful job making that apartment H-O-M-E :)

I don't have a real or faux mantle either, so my fall decor consisted of making a wreath for our front door. :)

I like your berry candle holder too!

It looks great! I wish I had a mantle to decorate. My "mantles" are my tv, desk & shelf in the living room!
