A little bit of fall

Exactly one week from today marks the 1 year anniversary of the buying my house! Yep, November 17th was the day I got the keys!

Except, even though the house was mine, all mine, way back in November I didn't move in til January. So this marks my first true 'holiday season' as a homeowner. 

I'm still easing into all the holiday decorating hoopla, but my mantle has gotten a little bit of a fall touch!

I picked that wooden frame up at Goodwill for like a dollar a few months ago! It had the ugliest 'ship at sea' print in it... but I love the frame itself. And that candle... heaven in a jar (Yankee Candle's Mountain Lodge)

And just for sheer entertainment purposes, here was the mantle this exact time last year before the house was mine. Snazzy, no?!
