framed spring mantel

Oh dear, what a wonky, bit-by-bit way this post has come together today!  (I started with one picture at 7ish, then added several, and am just now adding these words at 3:00 ;)  I had just got the first picture put on this post at 7ish this morning, when I got a call asking to schedule a house showing at 11:30 and then another and another - four showings scheduled in total!  We just put our house on the market yesterday, and I was not expecting so much interest so soon.  Neither was my house.   So, we dropped everything and began dashing about like mad for the next four hours.  It was mad.

So anyway, my Spring Mantel.  If you've been with me awhile you know I first put up these frames last Fall, and it has been fun to redecorate them for every season since.   

I replaced the felted, magnolia-looking wreath I did earlier this month, with this little mossy number {will share the completely simple mossy-wreath-how-to later this week.}  
And added a little bird from Hobby Lobby.

Also covered my little "m" with moss, much like I covered the big "M" last year.

I really put together the whole mantel around wanting to feature this lovely orchid my sweetheart gave me for my birthday.


It's a month old and is as beautiful as ever.  Best part is that I only have to put a couple ice cubes on it a week to keep it happy - perfect for my spacey watering habits.


Oh dear, I do love spring...and a clean house.
Now to keep it that way. ha. ; )
