Spring & Easter Mantel…
I’ve had my Spring & Easter mantel decorating done over a week. But, then we went away last week and ended up getting sick which has put me behind in sharing.
You might know that I’ve been volunteering at a thrift store. This can be a good and bad thing. It was a good thing when I found two of these evergreens..
I also have a sprig of white flowers….
Than I cut into smaller flowers..
Once I tucked the white flowers in the evergreen and added some moss with and a few eggs provided great color and spring vibe! You aren’t able to see their nestled in Ironstone soup tureens.
I made a new dress for my knitted bunny and made her a few “babies” to coddled in her pockets. Do you notice the cute bunny face in the background? The bunny was determined to be in the photo.
In the same fashion , as I typically do, I just started added more pieces to the mantel..That is to say until we needed to leave for Indiana to have work done on our
new old Terry.
But, as I mentioned, I was a very bad girl thrifting, and found some wonderful pieces. One, as soon as I spotted it knew it would be perfect for the mantel.
This lovely half barn door. I originally planned on having it stand upright, but, our mantel is higher than most and wouldn’t fit. Then I laid it down and like it better since it fills more space on the wall.
I love the old white wood on the wall instead of the darker sheet music. Unknowingly it helped to make a decision on what to do with the wall above the mantel.
I used a preserved boxwood evergreen and tucked in some more colorful flowers.
The pretty silk tulips were found thrifting in Indiana too and just tucked them around a pair of antler..
Then I added my favorite pansy oil painting. The knit busy is sitting on another deer antler. A few rabbits added too.
Oops, I just noticed the photo has the knit bunnies old dress…But here’s that bunny with big ear again.
You an see her legs between the antlers..Her face has a puzzled expression on it. Maybe its not comfortable sitting on the antlers?
The bunny stature on the end was found while working…Moss placed across the mantel for a natural look.
It was so much fun to decorating our Spring & Easter Mantel.
