Spring Mantel


It  all started with my newly painted mirror. 

Added an old wine bottle, I would love a real antique bottle. 

I used a galvanized bucket and live plant on the right, elevated with books. 

perfect pink flowers with the bunnies ears

I don’t think that I’ve decorated with pink before.

I wrapped raffia around the top of the wine bottle, put some TJ Maxx realistic looking eggs in a silver bowl.

It was so easy to peal the cover off the $1 books.

All the little details.

I love the refreshing look of the light colors.

What color says Spring to YOU?

    So pretty! I love the pink! I haven’t even started on mine yet. I wish these parties lasted longer, but it looks like (based on Debbiedoo’s) they are only lasting a day or two. Bummer!

    Oh Debbie… you already knew I would adore it, right? It is so sweet and all “dreamy~Springy” with just the perfect touches of pink. “Our” bunny sure looks cute up there! If I ever get a fatter mantel, maybe mine will hop on up too? Thanks so much for sharing it!!

    So Pretty and Fresh! Hey, don’t tell anyone the wine bottle is not old…they won’t know the difference. I have been hoarding some just like that to use sometime. I think they have that “old glass” wavy look. I like the way you tied the twine on the neck of the bottle.
