Masculine Mantle


To me, Spring has a feminine feel
and Autumn has a more masculine feel.

I finally packed away the Summer Mantle
to make way for the oranges, yellows,
and browns of Autumn.
My boys go hunting for white-tailed deer
and I went hunting in the attic for
items to pull together to welcome in
the tiniest bit  of cooler weather.

I have a husband that hunts as well and I did a little incorporating of the antlers into my fall mantle. You have done a really stunning job of making it look elegant and masculine all at the same time. Well done!

This mantle is AMAZING! It is one of the best I have viewed thus far! I love, love, love the stacked pumpkins on the candlestick, but then again the lanterns are an A+ as well! You mixed it up well!

Your mantel is beautiful! I agree with the masculine feel of autumn. My husband is a huge hunter, and we have an abundance of antlers around our house (all in the man room right now). I may have to bring them out and incorporate them into den! Thanks for sharing!
