Halloween Mantle

 I have a 2 story mantle...
It is a bit difficult to decorate because it is a 2 story....
 Cricut cut bats
in 3 different sizes
sewed onto a really long crochet chain stitch...with a sewing machine.
I think they help to give some motion...
 3 D letters with Cereal Boxes
Slightly obsessed.  
But I love my Pinterest inspired witches feet.
I sewed magnets into the tops so when we need or want the fire place we can just take them down.

Favorite Fall Recipe

I love fall
I love the leaves changing
I love the cool night air
I love everything that screams fall
like pumpkin spice lattes
pumpkin scones
pumpkin bread
soup simmering on the stove
rolls baking in the oven
Cozy evenings spent near the fireplace

and Amazing Spiced Chai Concentrate:
I found this recipe on Tasty Kitchen and I <3 it!  
It is such a good base recipe but completely customizable.
You can use black tea, white tea, herbal tea (honeybush tea is delish in this recipe)
I made a fresh batch this morning 
and we didn't have any oranges in the fridge so I left the zest out.
Still amazing.
