Spring Mantel 2015

Hello friends!


I would love to share my Spring mantel 
with you today.

Welcome...come take a look...

I kept things very simple.

It all started with this sign that I made a few years ago.

The sign was my spin on a Pottery Barn sign.
You can read about that right here.

I added a couple of cute birds from Joann Fabrics.

I filled two matching white pitchers with yellow Spring blooms.
I find there are never enough white pitchers in my life!

 I used the white lanterns that I purchased at Kirklands 
once again just because they are so versatile and 
really fill in the space of this large mantel easily.

I don't know if you've noticed, but
I've always had an empty space to one side of my fireplace.

not any more anyway!

I did a little IKEA shopping on Friday.
This wicker chair came home with me, along
with a lot of other goodies!

Happy Spring to you!
