A Spring Mantel...

The forsythia sprigs that I mentioned in this post are part of my spring mantel.

 They were my starting point.  

 From there - it was a matter of seeing what I already had
 that would go with them.  I have very few spring things - 
so that narrowed my choices.  I pulled out these chicks and then
 remembered these old Victorian poem gift books...

I also remembered an antique Easter post card on a 
wooden block I picked up somewhere for my gift drawer.
Haven't had occasion to gift it yet - so may as well use it...

I also usually decorate my chest coffee table.  Again - I worked
 with what I could find that went with the color scheme already
 developed on the mantel.  Pickin's were slim.   
A few aqua Mason jars as candle holders...

 ...and a ring of pink berries will have to do.

Did you notice the vintage show towel with the clover damask?

Spring IS coming!

Look around and pull out some yellows, pinks, lavender 
and aquas and see what you can come up with.
A chick, egg or nest or two will help too!
Would love to hear about it!  ~Joyce
