Let’s connect!

Hi friends and welcome to stop #1 on day four of the Fall In Love With Your Home tours. Today, it’s all about Fall Mantels and I’m tickled to be able to show you mine.

If you’re new here, please let me introduce my blog to you.  At the time that Worthing Court was started four years ago, our home was quite a bit different than the home that we live in today.  The decor was pretty traditional and weighed heavily on the red, green and gold side.  We sold that home a little over a year ago and purchased my dream home!  You might not think that a twenty year old, extremely dated, brick home is a dream home, but it sure is to me.  My hubby and I have spent the last year remodeling our new-to-us home from top to bottom and we still aren’t finished.  We’ve totally remodeled the kitchen, the master bath and laundry room and are slowly working our way through the rest of the house. Click HERE to take a look at everything that has been done so far.  

The last time that I shared my fireplace and mantel was after its total makeover and it was all decked out for the summer.  Well, today I’m happy to be able to share my fall mantel with you!


Fall Mantel With Farmhouse And Rustic Touches


I’m really honored to be participating in the “Fall In Love With Your Home” blog tour series. It’s going on this whole week and you’ll find the links to all of the bloggers and their inspiring posts at the bottom of the page.

One of my four-legged sidekicks decided that he wanted to be part of my fall mantel reveal, so you’ll see his cute little face in several of my photos.  That’s Opie The Ferocious Guard Dog, btw.

The main reason that I chose the faux gate to hang above my mantel, is that it provides a good backdrop for changing out my wreaths for all of the different holidays and seasons.  Then all I have to do it switch out some of the other accessories and I’m done.  And since we have such a tall ceiling in the family room, it helps to fill the voluminous wall space above the fireplace.

The large lantern on the left side of the mantel stayed from the summer look, but I changed out the summery topiary and candle that it contained, to a wheat sheaf and a couple of pumpkins for fall.  The right side of my mantel holds an urn (that used to live on top of the entertainment center at our former house) and a great wooden lantern that I found at a local store.  I definitely have a thing for lanterns.

I still love my vintage squirrel that I found at a junk shop a few years ago.  Do you happen to remember his first appearance on my Bounty Of The Harvest Thanksgiving tablescape one year?

Down on the hearth, a basket brimming with pumpkins and some crooked and gnarly sticks is on one side of the fireplace.  One of the perks of having woods surrounding us is that there’s never a shortage of sticks and branches to use for decorating!

Three candlesticks topped with twig pumpkins and backed by a faux tobacco basket are on the other side.  Those candlesticks used to be red, green and gold until I gave them my “driftwood look” makeover.  I promise that I’ll share how I do that one of these days.
