That is a gorgeous painting your grandmother did. What a treasure to own. It is just the perfect colors for this time of year, too. xo Diana

OH I love this painting! Stunning! Absolutely stunning...she was quite talented!

Funny, I just did a post about something of MY grandmas that I bring out every fall too! :) Treasured heirlooms...so wonderful to view and enjoy! :)

Andrea - What a gorgeous mantle! Just beautiful. Love the painting and how special it is to you. That mirror is pretty awesome!


Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions

Simple is my motto, too, in recent years, Andrea! We'll see how that plays come Christmas. : ) Love how you dressed up your urns. I think they look perfect on your mantel. The picture is great! What a wonderful way to remember your grandmother and it suits this mantel vignette perfectly.

Brenda Kula

I love the mirror too! (Where did you get it?) And the painting that is so special to you is priceless.

Ricki Jill Treleaven

Your mantel is gorgeous, and I'd love a close-up look at your grandmother's painting....hint, hint!


What a beautiful painting! Love your Fall mantel!


How neat to have that painting! Your mantel looks amazing. Of course, you know I love that mirror!

Oh...it's great and sometimes simple is better. The syrocco pheasants look expensive and I know they are not. Love the little painting. The urns are perfect. You are doing better than I ...I've still got a super huge mess in the living room and dining room. Why didn't I paint last summer. I had a reason. But I cannot remember now what it was.


Hi Andrea,

Your grandmother was certainly a talented woman! Her beautiful painting depicts the details and accents of the autumn season, with warmth in her colours and technique in her textures. Simply stunning.


Penny @ The Comforts of Home

Your mantel looks wonderful. That painting is perfect!

Oh my goodness, such a beautiful painting and what a fabulous treasure. Your mantel is gorgeous. Thanks tons for linking to Inspire Me. Hugs, Marty


Andrea, your mantel looks great! What a sweet idea to use your grandmother's painting. The colors are perfect!


I like your style of decorating! I am a more is more decorator myself but have been wanting to simplify. Love just taking what is there and making something fabulous like you did on your mantel. That gorgeous painting goes perfect! Visiting from The Scoop!


Gorgeous fall mantel. I love original oils of flowers (and own several), your grandmother's is beautiful.
Have a wonderful week, Andrea...


what a gorgeous fall mantel!I love your Grandmother's painting! what a wonderful way to honor her!


Your mantel looks sooo pretty. I just moved and as I unpacked boxes, things went to places that I have to redo...and my mantel is one of them. It turned out all summery and here it is, November. Must redo....and like you, I am using much less than normal. After seeing your pretty mantel, now I will have to rework mine today. :)
Love the pretty wreath Nana Diana won from your blog. Gorgeous.

Have a super week.

I'm coming over through Nana Diana's blog. You have lovely Autumn d├ęcor on your mantel. Your Grandmother's painting is so special, and the colors go perfect with the season. Your mirror caught my eye - it's beautiful.

So nice to meet you, and sometimes I think "less is more" too.
