When I first started blogging, I just couldn’t get enough of the ideas and inspiration I was seeing in this strange new world. It was thrilling!
There were things I never would have thought of doing and it made me want to try them all.
But, somewhere along the line, I think I lost my way a little bit.
I think I began suffering from “style schizophrenia“.
I doubted my instincts, questioned my judgement and found myself staring at blank expanses, like my fireplace mantels, and felt them mocking me….daring me to figure out how to decorate them.
I caught a glimpse of the dark side of mantel decor.
Filling it with all sorts of fall goodies…
The simplicity of a creamy white pumpkin resting on top helped me know I was headed in the right direction.
In the end, wiping the slate clean…
…and starting over…
…helped me remember why I love blogging so much.
It’s the opportunity to use the inspiration to inspire you to be…well…
Thanks so much for joining me, and my Simple Fall Mantel, at the Fence today,
