CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Blue and White with Bittersweet Fall Mantel
I finished my fall mantel today and couldn't wait to show you! This one is very different from previous years...but I still have my orange for autumn! However, this time I pulled out some of my favorite blue and white chinoiserie to add to the mix!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Blue, White and Bittersweet Fall MantelI love the contrast of the orange pumpkins with the blue and white! Many of the pieces were thrift store finds or are very old treasures from my first days of decorating my own home.

It was also used in the Pottery Barn inspired fall wreath on my front door.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Blue, White and Bittersweet Fall MantelI debated about changing the white grape patterned plates on the mantelpiece for blue and white, but decided that would be too much! What do you think?
