Happy, Spring Mantel




This is a Happy, Spring Mantel.

Not to be confused with Happy Spring Mantel!, which would be a rather strange greeting for me to give you, dontcha think??

(See how important commas are?) :)

But, this mantel...well, this mantel is Happy and Springy. It's a Happy, Spring Mantel!

What's so happy about it, you ask?


Well, the colors, of course! Aren't these colors Happy? Aren't they Springy?

Know what else is Happy? Me. Because I didn't have to craft a thing to put this mantel together. Nope, I just gathered elements from past mantels, paired those with a Spring banner from Target and I had myself a Spring Mantel. Happy!

And, my mantel says life, because life's the word that comes to mind when I think about Spring. For so many reason, not least of which is Easter, the best Spring holiday...by far!


If you were to put together a Happy, Spring Mantel, which colors would YOU include?? I'm dying to know!
