Autumn Mantel

On Saturday I told y'all about the stupid hickory nuts I have at my house.  Well here's what I did with them.  I put the in the hurricane vases I already had and stuck a candle in them.  Yeah, not the most creative thing, but it gives my mantel a more autumn look.  I also grabbed a couple twigs from the yard and made some little felt leaves to hang from them.  It's not over the top, but it's enough fall touches to remind me of the season.  
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  Mine was pretty uneventful.  My husband introduced me to Torchlight 2, which I've been playing quite a bit (I think he just wanted me to start playing video games again because I refused to play the new World of Warcraft expansion.  I'm done with WoW).  Anyways, I have a lot planned this week for the blog, my Etsy shop, and in real life.  I hope you all have a great week!
