So I decided that even though spring is not here yet, I did not want to come home from the hospital to see snowman and reminders of winter. Besides we have been having unseasonably warm weather and I have been hit with spring fever. Yes I know that I will be in a for a major let down when we get our normal March blizzard.
I was inspired by the great spring items at Hobby Lobby and decided to go with a mantle that could easily carry my décor through to next Christmas if it had to. I am not sure how much time or energy I will have for that sort of thing once I have two kids and a full time job. Kind of stressing about that. I should be able to handle it because there are millions of women around the US who do it every day, but you never know. Any way back to the point. I chose to work with my favorite home accessory the antique leaded glass window that my husband and I found when scouring antique stores one day. I added some great greenery pieces, some urns and of course by collection of Eiffel Towers. Oh how I love the Eiffel Tower. I have even been eyeing a few new ones at Hobby Lobby, just waiting on a great sale.
I made the “H” from a MDF letter I found at Hobby Lobby and hot glued Spanish Moss to it. I used some green polka dot gross grain ribbon that I just hot glued to the back of the letter to hang it from a command hook that I attached to the top of the window. It was a quick and easy 15 minute project that I absolutely adore.
There are several other ideas I would like to execute for the spring but who knows if I will find time. For now this is just the breath of spring that I was craving.
One last shot.
