Spring Mantel and More

Well, spring is finally here and I am giddy, how about you? My two favorite seasons are spring and fall, so when they arrive, I go a little crazy around here. One of the things that happen is, I get the decorating bug, you know you get it too. Today, I am sharing with y'all, some spring touches around my home. So, let's take a look at what I came up with this year. Thanks for coming by, and please drop me a comment, so I will know that you were here.

                              Mr. Peter welcomes you today!!!

                        Hello spring, I am so happy to see ya!!!!!

                              Family photos are very important to us.

                              My dogwood wreath that I have had for
                           years, and can't for the life of me, remember
                                  where I got it from, oh well!

                                 Some old blue mason jars found
                                             their way here.

                            Mr. Peter was found last month at a new
                            gift shop at the beach. Now, this place is
                            full of wonderful merchandise, and the
                            best part of it is, the prices are low, my
                            kinda place for sure. Mr. Peter was just

                                  Still having fun with my old
                                  cabinet door. She is just full
                                          of charm to me.

                               Another wonderful family pic.

                             I like my picture frames to be different, so
                             here, you see how I used one of my large
                                        mason jars as a frame.

                              I have moved this vintage basket all over
                                        this house for years now.

                                    Another spring touch.

                      Now, who doesn't like a cute little nest?

                       How about a cute little birdie too?

So very pretty Mr. Peter! How could you not have taken him home for only $12?? The rustic vibe to your mantel display is so refreshing...the blue mason jars add just the right amount of color!
Have a great day!!

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

Well since it doesn't FEEL like spring yet, we're forced to create it INSIDE! I love that bunny -- can't believe he was only 12.00! I really like the big piece of weathered wood on the mantle -- what a great anchor piece for all of the other pretty things.

It all looks great Linda! I am hoping I can get mine done while my mom is here. Thanx for partying!

Hi Linda. Your mantel turned out great. I love the cabinet door with the wreath and the mason jars and the photos, especially the one with your husband and daughter under the canopy of trees. I love the bunny. What a bargain he was at $12. Happy, happy spring to you!!!

I love your spring mantel. I think it is so important to have family pics displayed.

Springtime is a favorite of mine too. Love the idea of the picture in the jar. And of course, your chippy cabinet door captured my heart. Perfect place to show off that pretty wreath.

Just lovely, Linda! I wish it felt like Spring around here!

Adore the cabinet door and wreath. As beautiful as everything in your display are, I'm afraid they have to take a backseat to the gorgeous young lady in the frame. Don't tell the rabbit I said that...okay?

Hi Linda,
Still drooling over that chippy door. Mr. rabbit was a great find. Love the basket! I have two old funeral baskets and I adore them. Yours is really unique. Great idea of using the jar for a photo. I would love if you linked to my 'Share Your Cup Thursday' party sometime!

Olive said...
