Layered Spring Mantel {2013}

Good morning, lovely friends! I hope y’all had a fabulous weekend! We spent it traveling to Indiana and back for a friend’s wedding. Oh, and catching up on an hour of lost sleep. Ha! I’ve been working on my Spring Mantel and I’m excited to show it to you today! I used items that I had on hand which is always a good thing.

I love how simple and pretty the mantel is!

Tulips are my favorite flower! Ahhh!spring mantel decor

I’ve had the bird print for a few years. I think it came from either a yard sale or thrift store.  I adore my white hobnail jar. I bought several of them for decorating for my brother’s wedding rehearsal dinner this coming weekend. :)

I love the reclaimed wood block and my blue ceramic decanter from a yard sale.

I’m not sure I can even say how much I love the metal minnow bucket. It’s my favorite.  The wood piece behind it is from Southern Accents and is reclaimed wood. *swoon*

I’m awful at writing on chalkboards. :) The bunny rabbit was an ugly thrift store bunny that I made over with some primer and white paint.

If nothing else makes you smile, this pillow sure will! The yellow is fabulous, right? By the way, the pillow is from TJ Maxx.

I finished up the Spring Mantel with a very inexpensive Spring Pennant Banner. Tutorial here.

And that’s a wrap on my Layered Spring Mantel for 2013!

Do you decorate for Spring? Have you started pulling out some Spring decor yet?
