TRADITIONAL FALL COLORS
Having two sides or halves that are not the same: not symmetrical.
An asymmetrical mantel arrangement.
When I was in the throes of Shingles, recently, I began creating a Fall mantel. A photo of the mantel arrangement in progress was seen in a previous post. Since I am well on the road to recovery and feeling lots better, I made additions to the hearth room mantel, Thursday morning, finishing it just in time to welcome the first day of Autumn 2012, Saturday September 22.
Even though it is not the most popular look for a fireplace, we like the traditional slightly aged brick, mimicking kitchen fireplaces in some older homes. The mantel was made especially for this fireplace. It is oak. There are no plans to paint it.
We use this fireplace more than any other fireplace in our home. We have enjoyed it on many cold winter mornings.
The print above the mantel is from John Pils. It depicts Historic South Main Street, Saint Charles Missouri. Fall is our favorite time of year to visit S. Main.
A woodland in full color is awesome as a forest fire, in magnitude at least, but a single tree is like a dancing tongue of flame to warm the heart.
