Spring Mantle


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.

Spring Mantal 1

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.
