Small touches to create a Fall mantle scape in my kitchen

I added a burlap wreath and decorative apples to my mantle design to create more of a Fall feel. The kitchen mantle already had my watercolors and frame .

I think the Burlap strapping draped through the mantle scape pulled the Autumn look together. Adding a few chestnuts from the homestead yard  added a bit more texture; but only gathered a few from my yard this year. The squirrels got there first!
Happy Fall!
