It’s still winter outside, but it’s spring in the OTI home. Bringing out my spring decor doesn’t mean I’m trying to shoo away my beloved winter. Nope, not me. It just means it’s now March, a month I associate with spring so it feels kind of odd to still keep my winter decor up… even if there’s snow outside! March is the green light to bring in the spring!
I’ve already shared my spring wreath and table centerpieces, today’s show and tell is my spring mantel.
My old window and my grandmother’s framed embroidered pillow cases stayed…. just like my frame tray, I love these pieces so they will be sticking around a bit longer.
You’ve already been introduced to my book pages flower and my green vintage juice/water bottles. I decided to dry out the florals so I wouldn’t have to keep changing them out. I just hung them upside down in my closet for about a week, and they were ready to go.
Remember my little yellow birdhouse from last spring? It was one of my favorite spring pieces so I had to make sure that I included it this year along with the little clay birdie I made to accompany the house. On a faux tree stump is where the two sat last spring and once again it is their choice of abode for this spring. ;) Next to them is a vintage blue Ball mason jar filled with green leaves. I initially had planned to fill it with little moss balls, but I already had green leaves on hand and opted to go that route instead.. and I’m glad I did. The sunflower was the finishing touch in this corner.
Also from last spring’s mantel are my be inspired and inspire others flower jar vases that were Mod Podged with fabric. Right next to them is a new edition. I couldn’t resist this plump birdie when I saw her at Hobby Lobby… and with 50% off it was a no brainer for me! Welcome birdie!
And that’s it… my spring mantel is done! However that’s not the end of my spring decorating… there’s one more area to go which I’ll be sure to share with y’all!
Hope you enjoyed today’s show and tell. Have you started decorating for spring yet?
