Since today is the first day of spring break, I thought it appropriate to share the spring mantel...... before the kids summer break starts!
This is probably the simplest spring mantels I have ever done and guess what..... I love it. The approach to my mantel this year is similar to my approach on a lot of decisions in my life these days, simple, effortless and without complication....courtesy of items that were within arms reach in the house and some Bradford Pear trees outside that I co-mingled with some cute little blue blooms from Hobby Lobby.
My beloved Cairn terriers, Kara and Kayla, are making a repeat performance this year (first performance was here) , as is this cute egg print that I got from a book that I ordered here and framed.
I filled a white compote bowl with mega huge eggs, my kids seriously think a dinosaur laid them, that I used last year here and topped it off with a bird nest that I used on the Spring wreath here.
If you follow my blog regularly you may have noticed two changes to my mantel. Any guesses????
Yup, the mantel is now white and my sweet little family picture has now been replaced with this gorgeous blue clock that I picked up a few months ago while antique shopping in Atlanta. And if you are really observant you will notice the lack of clock hands.
Remember, I am going after simple and effortless ....who cares what time it is anyways!
What's your approach to life these days?
Movies, bowling, chuckie cheese and all things on
the stay-cation list.
