Happy 1st day of Spring everyone!! Hmmm, this is the weirdest Spring weather I've ever seen..our backyard is still filled with a whole lotta white stuff!
Last week I was busy with having the kiddies home with me for March Break. I was sure this baby was going to arrive then but thanks to the help of my Mum, we managed to get the rest of the closets organized (including the babe's), have fun with the kids and Mum did ALL our laundry. God Bless her!! She's the best.
Every day I think this babe is going to arrive, but to no avail. Both our sons were born on the 20th day of the month so it would be pretty cool if she decided to make her grand appearance today. Hear that baby?
Whether Spring only feels like a date on the calendar today, I'm definitely ready for a change in season. Easter is quickly approaching and my winter mantel needed a little love. I headed down to the basement to see what I could round up.
I have this pink, feather Easter wreath from my Nana. It was the last wreath that hung on her door before she passed away. It's girly, whimisical and my Nana loved it and so do I. I don't think I would have ever bought it myself but there is something really adorable about it. So, it found a place on my Spring mantel and it makes me smile.
However, then Mum and I headed out to Homesense to look for some baskets for the playroom and I came across a beautiful mirror that said "please take me home". I've been stalking Homesense once a week since January waiting to scoop up the perfect mirror to finish off the mantel DIY we did in the Fall and this beauty was there.
Mr. Fix-it hung it and Nana's Easter wreath went back up too. I'm in mirror heaven. I'm glad I waited for the perfect one, instead of buying something just to fill the space.
Greenery, flowers and fresh colours can give your mantel an instant pick up and it's a nice change from the heavyness that we often do for winter.
Look around your home, I'm sure you have something that says Spring. When in doubt, pick up a few bunches of tulips at the grocery store (I suggest keeping them all the same colour for continuity) and line them up in three vases across your mantel. It's a fresh.fabulous.sophisticated way to get a Spring mantel.
Keep it Beautiful.
