No mantle place?

We have a free standing wood stove in our living room which means I have not got a pretty mantle to be able to decorate. Instead, I used a side table to get this kind of look.

Pumpkins and berries in a vase always work so well.

This year, I have a new little stitched piece to add to my Halloween decorations with this witch's game board. For me, seasonal decorating is centered around my quilts and stitched pieces.



  1. Beautiful as usual Heidi I love the witches game board.

  2. Lovely table - we have the same problem in our sitting room as we have a wood burner, but now have a cabinet round the radiator, so there's a little place for knick-knacks. I love your cross-stitcheries - what a lot of work though!

  3. I love your collection of goodies...They are all displayed so nicely.. Mixing mediums really will tie things together... Nice job, Faye

  4. What a great substitute, Heidi. It all looks so fall-ish.

  5. It all looks so lovely Heidi. I really need to do something in the way of fall decorating. The last couple of years I have done nothing. You have inspired me to get out there this weekend and find some good buys to decorate with.

    blessings, jill

  6. Very cute. I love the pumpkins on the vases, looks like a topiary. I love how the orange pumpkins add so much color at this time of year. Fall is really my favorite. I've been enjoying photos on Pinterest of fall. I have a mantle, but it might be an idea for another room. Thanks.

  7. Your vignettes are always so pretty. I don't have a mantle over my fireplace either, but no matter - we always find alternate ways to "pretty" our homes, don't we? :-)

  8. Very cute! The pumpkins in the vases are so fun. Haven't seen that before!
