our mantel last fall
I'm always a little sad to say good-bye to the flowers that are so plentiful in the summer so I replace them with fresh foliage. Any greenery I can get my hands on works perfectly for an instant splash of color.
Even though it will be a while before the season's first fire, a few logs help to set the tone for cozy nights to come. I'm a bit behind on cleaning out the fireplace from last year (ha), but once it's clean I stack a few birch logs for texture.
We are a cozy crew here at the cottage and vine casa. Friends who visit also like to curl up on our couch - so throw blankets are never far away.
Lastly, when the temps drop, I like to add a sheepskin to my office chair for warmth and comfort.
