Spring Mantelscape for 2014



Well it is here...finally...the very first day of SPRING! And it is gorgeous outside here in the northeast. A little March wind but otherwise an absolutely perfect day!. And the perfect day it was to create my Spring Mantelscape!




The picture in the pretty little frame is of my mother and father. They wed in September of 1956 and are still together today. And some said it wouldn't last! 

The small vase is faux mercury glass I created using Krylon's Looking Glass spray paint. To see the tutorial just click here.





Sometimes I never know where I am going to end up when I start a project like putting together a mantel vignette. I pull a bunch of items together from around the house and group them according to color, size and materials they are made from. This year for some reason I am completely in love with white tulips, so the tulips became my jumping off point.





I decided to add a little burlap for a different type of texture and to frame out the large platter.





I adore the crisp fresh look of white and green together whether it is for Christmas or Spring. But as you already know I am a GREEN Gal!!!




Wishing you all a wonderful first day of Spring!
