This is one of my *favorite* times of the year – that time when you can literally see the LIGHT at the end of winter! I get a new sense of energy, and a sudden urge to run around the house and sing. Which my husband quickly tells me I shouldn’t be doing (and he is 100% correct – ha!)
So while I can’t profess my love for spring through song, I CAN decorate my house with beautiful flowers and vibrant spring colors. Which is exactly what I did with my spring mantel this year!
Ahh I’m in LOVE! There’s just something about fresh flowers that makes me SO happy. Everything else from the mantel was “shopped” from the rest of my house, or taken out of storage from last spring. Those fabric covered books are from last year’s spring mantel, and I still love them! I topped them with a little bird I got at Michaels a few years ago, and my “Here Comes the Sun” artwork that I made last year (tutorial here):
I used my favorite rustic frame in the back (originally 99 cents!) and brought one of the frames from last year’s mantel in as well. That white flower is always somewhere in my house- it was a clearance find at Michaels a few years ago. The white pitcher was from TJ Maxx.
I was considering adding more to this display, but by keeping it relatively simple, you let the flowers do the talking. Which I am MORE than happy to let them do. Is it just me, or do flowers seem to *sing* on their own?
I’m in big fat LOVE with these flowers, and they brighten up any room so much!
What are you waiting for? Go grab some fresh flowers and officially invite SPRING into your house!
