Ever so slowly the days are getting a little longer and the birds seem to have a cheerier note to their song. I’ve been busy cleaning and purging and doing a little decorating while I’m at it. Here’s a look at my nature inspired spring mantel that I recently created.
But first, I’m joining a group of blogging friends who are also sharing their mantels or a spring vignette. You’ll find all their creativity at the end of this post.
For my nature inspired spring mantel, I brought back my wooden mushrooms that only got a short display stint back in the fall. They were replaced by Christmas decor and I felt they needed to be enjoyed a bit more.
Spring is a great time for mushroom decor. They remind me of mushroom hunting in the month of May.
We’d look for morels at the base of trees. Have you ever gone mushroom hunting?
In the center of my nature inspired spring mantel is this charming twig next that’s sprouting a few paper white narcissus. I found this at Terrain and had to have it.
Once the paper whites fade, I can plant something else in the twig nest and get more use out of it.
My peace lily sits in a basket on top of a basket. It will soon sprout some flowers of its own. All my plants are doing really well right now which makes me happy. It’s the simple things!
