Springtime Mantelscape



Hi everyone and happy Friday! I just can't believe the weather over the past few days because it has been phen-om-en-al to say the very least. We have been in the 70's here in the northeast almost hitting 80 degrees for March. That is a crazy insane some 30 degrees above our norm for this time of year. But I will take it! So I have been in like Spring overdrive giving the house a lighter brighter feel to help welcome one of my favorite seasons! This week I decided to tackle my mantel, and here is what she is looking like!



Yellow has been calling my name for about the last month so I have been buying up anything yellow by the truck loads. The other day while at Walmart I scored these pretty basket weave ceramic vases for only $2.50 each. They were then filled with white tulips and placed  atop of a few books to give the mantelscape some height variation.




Mr. Rabbit is busy gardening on the right side of the mantel... 


...while mama deer tends to her two doe on the left. This darling deer trio was purchased over 40 years ago by yours truly at the 5 and 10 cent store as a mother's day gift. My mom held onto them all these years and just recently gave them back to me. I think they are so sweet (have always loved their pretty painted eyes) and perfect for a springtime vignette.




Yellow tulips in a thrift shop watering can adorns the hearth... 


...and more on the coffee table. (As far as I am concerned you can NEVER have too many TULIPS!)

I still have a little way to go before my lighter fresher spring look is completed, and I'll be sure to keep you posted. To see my entire home decked out to welcome spring remember to stop back on Wednesday March 23rd for the full spring tour of 21 Rosemary Lane.
Have a great weekend!!!
