Tell me it's almost Spring...


It may be snowing outside, but it's 
Spring on the Mantel.



I'm a little tired of the gray skies and frigid weather, and
I needed a lighter Springy-er feel here in the Living Room,
so "some-bunnies" came out to play.








I kept my half-urn vases, 
but changed out the darker florals for a mass of Spring Tulips.




My Little Velveteen Rabbit;
He may be getting ready for a nibble...






 I love this little "smile".


















Center stage is a framed Die-Cut Calendar base from the early twenties. 
Love the cottage feel of Spring.



This little German Glass Glitter Bunny
has started to change around his muzzle.







...a few old clay flower pots and nests 
for the bunnies to romp around,
makes it feel like we'll be playing in the garden, soon.











Once the daffodils and tulips poke their little green shoots up,
I'm ready to start thinking
Spring!
How about you?
and if you're interested, here is last year's Spring Mantel .

I'll be joining in for these parties:


Table top Tuesday at A Stroll thru Life
Wow Us Wednesday at Savvy Southern Style
Open House Party at No Minimalist Here
TTT at Stone Gable
Home Sweet Home at the Charm of Home

If you're needing a good dose of Spring,
then hop on over and visit Becky and her sweet Easter goodies





xoxo,

Your mantle is beautiful Debra. We are so ready for spring too. Some days it feels like spring and I have to remind myself that it's still February. Other days, it's windy and chilly. Just a few weeks away though!

I need to get some Spring decor out. Cold temps have returned and I also am tired of the dreary days.
Enjoy your evening.

Your mantel is looking very Springy, Debra! I love your bunnies! I put some Spring out today, too, even though it was raining, cold and windy, and I had the fireplace going. I've put some bunnies across a few surfaces in my home, so hopefully Mother Nature will get the hint.

Nothing says spring like pink tulips! I'm in love with your charming cottage art! There is a cottage just down the street from me that looks almost like the one from your calendar. It's even got a windowbox under the second story window!

Libby said...

Debra, I love the fresh touch of Spring you have brought into your lovely home. I wish I could have your input on what to do with my mantel. I have very high ceilings and a large picture propped in the center of the mantel, and am just not sure what to add without distracting from the print and yet keeping it all in balance. Always find your posts inspiring to be more creative.

TracyMB @ Crows Feet Chic said...
