Seasonal Stitchery & Decor

I've changed things around a bit on my autumn/Halloween mantle this year.  I've added more of my cross stitch pieces- two of which you may remember from last year, and the small one on the right is newly framed for display this year.





The black letter "H" does double duty-- stands for "H"alloween, and is also the first letter of our surname  :^)

 I picked up this little black frame for Alphabet Pumpkin (by JBW Designs) at HomeSense for $5.99.  I'm always on the lookout for square frames; especially black ones.  Kind of like that little black dress... it always seems to work!

I still have a bit more decorating to do, but I wanted to kick things off with the mantle which is the focal point of our sitting room.

For even more fall themed inspiration grab a coffee, take a break, and head on over to visit Layla at The Lettered Cottage where I'm linked up to her Autumn Link Party:
