Starting My Spring Mantel

In the spirit of trying not to acquire more stuff, I'm attempting to decorate for Spring with things I already have in my home.  This will probably last for at least a few days.  :)  The daffodils in my garden are just beginning to bloom, so I'm hoping to have a vase full in a few days!

Here's what I've got on the mantel so far.  I definitely plan to play with it a bit more.


I collect McCoy planters.  This is one of my favorites, because I love the robin's egg blue color.


Never even took the price tag off!

Just looking at it gets me all excited to go flea-marketing this summer.  Maybe I'll find some good ones to add to my collection.  That's the thrill of junking....you never know what treasures you'll find!

I picked up these sweet egg cups at an antique store.  I've seen reproductions of them, but these are the real vintagy deal.


I typed up one of my favorite Chinese proverbs:  Keep a green tree in your heart, and perhaps a singing bird will come.  Perfect for Spring!


Maybe at some point I'll clean the price tag sticker residue off of the picture frame.


I'm hoping to plant something in the planter, and maybe even put some plants in the fireplace.  But for now, this will do!

  1. The egg cups are great! I looove plants the fireplace. I wish we didn't have a gas FP so I could put plants or candles in ours. :)
