Spring Mantel

This year I am craving muted blues and greens. I've been changing my decor slowly but surely away from reds and yellows. I love the tranquil tones of blue and green. It makes me feel like my life is much more peaceful than it is! :)

I definitely did not go all out for spring decorating, other than changing over my color scheme. I've got a sweet little lamb cake mold on the mantel, along with my arch window and a white-painted shutter. I always have a stack of old books around -- in almost every room of the house. I have a thing for old books, you might say.

The oval silver frame is one we used for my daughter's reception decorations, and I've just changed out the ribbons to match the colors of the room. I love the simple, fresh feel of all of it put together.

Ahhhh. Spring.


  1. I love it - so sweet and peaceful! I'm excited for spring to arrive and stay for a while!

  2. Your mantel looks so fresh and pretty for spring. Love the colors you're gravitating to in your decorating.
