Fall Mantel and our Famiy Room

The cool weather blew in this weekend in Westerville...
and so I decided it was time to decorate with my fall items.
Out came the pumpkins and fall garland and I decided to get the sewing machine
 out and create a burlap banner to hang on the mantel.
Matt was excited to get a fire going...so he ran to Home Depot and bought a chimney sweep log to make sure that we wouldn't burn the house down on with our first real fire.
Phew...


We hung a few more things on the walls this weekend, which always makes the house feel more like home.
We hung the shelves on the walls to the right...
and sometime this week I will show you the wall going up the stairs to the bedrooms.


I was excited to put up my old cameras again.


Our goal for this family room is to have meaningful talks, read lots of books and play a ton of games.
So, we put a few vintage games on the shelves...to remind us to play.
