Well, gracious me, it's feeling like Spring in Texas! And, this Spring Mantel complements the Spring air wonderfully.
(Spring, Spring, Spring. How many times can I say Spring in the first paragraph of this post?)
This mantel came together in about 10 minutes. Seriously. Yesterday was a positively Spring-alicious day around here and, thus, I had no problem finding some Spring inspiration.
You know that I like to use what I got when doing my weekly mantels, so that's what I did this week. The watercolor painting is half a pair my hubby and I got in Beijing, China several years ago. We try to buy art (of varying media) when we travel.
Way better than shot glasses or t-shirts.
(In my opinion, at least.)
I cut the flowering branches off a bushy-type thingamajig in our yard.
(Obviously I don't know the name of the plant, or I wouldn't be calling it a bushy-type thingamajig. Anyone recognize it?)
The chalkboard garland is made from cheapo Dollar Tree silver trays that I painted with chalkboard paint. I've used them before, more than once.
And, there you have it. My first official Spring Mantel. And, guess what?? Next week will be mantel number 26!! Which means I'll be half-way done with my 52 mantels. Woohoo!
Oh, and I'll be showing you an extra lot of St. Patty's day mantels next week. So, I'm saving up my features until then. I'll DOUBLE feature next Monday. Cool? Cool!
