Spring weather beckons all us Midwesterners to come outside and shake off the cabin fever, which is exactly what hubby and I did today. When I got home from work we went for a walk and it was soooooo nice to see the buds on the trees and the first robins of the season! It’s always a special day when you see the first robins back in town … I always look forward to it. So when fellow blogger Melissa asked me to join a spring mantel party, I knew mine would be about the beautiful birds! (Links to more mantels at the end of this post!)
You may remember that I swap out posters with the seasons.
Hubby unknowingly helped decorate. He was picking up around the house and stuck a stray feather into my tiny bottle. I liked the way it looked … big feather in a little bottle … and decided to include it in my “for the birds” spring mantel.
On either side of my vintage bird poster are miniature egg and feather prints.
Plenty of birds were singing in the fresh spring air.
It just sings spring!!
The weather is gonna stay decent through the weekend so more of the tree buds will start popping. Happily, the daffodils have started poking up through the dirt. I can’t wait!! I love the way the earth smells as it awakens once again. What’s your favorite part of spring?
