Autumn on the Mantel

Back in July I wrote about Summer on the Mantel, with a quilt I had made called "Ocean Treasures" and some faux coral.  With a nip in the air and yesterday being the first official day of Fall, I thought I'd better make the change in my mantel, too.

I made this quilt several years ago, using real leaves I found on my morning walks for patterns.

I found these adorable patchwork feathered friends at a favorite shop that regretfully has gone out of business.  It looks like the rooster is calling over his shoulder and telling his hens to stop gabbing and get a wiggle on.

We're coming, we're coming!

It is a beautiful arrangement. I just love the patchwork chickens so colorful and lovely.

I LOVE leaves, and this is a particularly pretty piece.

You're right there is a definate nip in the air now. I really like your autumn arrangement!
