Happy Tuesday! So, I distinctly remember getting the skinny from the groundhog earlier in the month that we were up for an early spring. Since I’ve yet to see much evidence of that, beyond a few daffodils poking through and the fantastic, sunny last two days – which, yay! – I decided to take matters into my hands and bring a little spring inside to make up for what is lacking outside. The fireplace mantel is a great place to start!
When we were first in our home, I had grand dreams of styling our new mantel to my hearts content – until Shay suggested we put the black box of doom right smack in the middle of my decorating dreams. I get it, and I agree it’s a great placement for it – the room would be difficult to space otherwise. It makes sense, and I hardly complain when I’ve got my feet up taking in my weekly Walking Dead fix. (Richonne, anyone?! OMG, still swooning!) But still, the giant black box makes it a bit difficult to style around.
The prints were a Home Goods find – We all know about Home Goods! The birds scattered around, add another hint at Spring.
This cute little bicycle reminds me of the bicycle rides that I’ll probably not be taking this Spring – lazy-, but that I’ll dream about as I look at my very own bicycle that I HAD to have that I’ve never ridden. Yes, I’m THAT girl. The idea of it is much more fun than the reality of it I think!
I’m not a pastel kind of girl. I like neutrals with pops of vibrant color – jewel tones can still say spring!
What I love about this mantel is how I can add or change it up as we get closer to Easter with some minor modifications.
I’m finally starting to feel like the groundhog and I are on the same page. How about you, how ready are you for Spring? And, again, Richonne!? #Richonne
