There are certain items that always stay up on our mantle: Mr E's Russian nesting dolls, the 4 little reindeer his gpa made, the US flag painted slate, the puppy dog carving, and my favorite Ikea sticks.
From time to time, I will rearrange these things. And with the seasons & holidays I'll add in other touches.
Fall is one of those seasons that I add in less subtle touches :)
Here's some picture of our mantle decorated for autumn.

Mmm, now if only there were some caramel apples in our pantry...
