Spring Mantel with a Bit of Winter



Spring Mantel with a bit of Winter 

Easing into Spring 
As I mentioned in one of my latest post:
"I have already transitioned into …what I call a "Wintery Spring Mantel" or a "Winter mantel easing into Spring".  I know there is no such thing, but you will see what I am talking about when you see it."
Here's a little sneak peak…Spring Mantel at One More Time Events.com

Hi, hope you all had a great weekend!!!  I have been busy getting some projects ready for Spring.  I know… I know… a little early, but before you know it March 20th, first day of Spring will be here before you know it….besides I love Spring and can't wait to get out in the yard and do some gardening, so for now I'm bringing it inside.  
Still keeping a bit of a Winter touch this sweater basket holding some pillows and step stool covered in faux fur.

How to Paint Bunnies at One More Time Events.com
I found these bunnies last year and as you can see there was damage to the bunnies cheek.  Since they really are not the color I wanted to use in my decor, a little paint would fix that right up.  I stippled on some grey sage.  By stippling the paint it left some of the under color to show through.


Painted and glittered Eggs How to at One More Time Events.com

I had these eggs and to make them match and sparkle I painted them and then added some glitter


The urn vase was also stippled with some paint over the terra cotta color to tie in with the other pieces

It's a bit on the simple side…but sometimes less is more.

A boxwood wreath and 2 small white birds with a bow of silver embellishements (left over from Christmas and also used in my Valentine decor, I definatly have gotten my money's worth) to finish up this Boxwood Topiary, I added some glitter  eggs.

  1. You're right, spring will be here before you know it. Never to early to start thinking about it. Your mantel looks so fresh and bright and pretty! Perfect for these gray days of winter.

  4. Your wreath adds a pretty pop of color, and the eggs are a sweet touch, too. As far as I'm concerned, any time after the New Year we can decorate for Spring. ;) It's never too early - even with snow on the ground. XOXO
