My {Spring} Mantel

Spring is in full bloom here and the bug to decorate for the season has definitely bit me...problem is we're moving relatively soon and I just don't have the desire to purchase anything new to update my mantel...however, with just a few items that I found while packing up my home I came up with the perfect solution to cure the bug to decorate for spring...problem solved!

The antique window has been on my mantel for a while...I just love it so much so I don't switch it out. In fact, my mantel had stayed pretty much the same for a while now with just a few things being switched out or rearranged.
I grabbed up the burlap frame that used to be in my craft area and gave it a nice coat of blue paint and then added some cute little chalk board frames that say Blessed be the Name of the Lord...

...then I snatched up the little white frame that used to be under this silver nest holder and just kept it simple with a piece of scrap book paper inside for some pattern...

...and this is what it changed from. My previous "fall" mantel (although it too looks a little spring-y...I don't like "fall" colors!).

And again, here it is now! Easy-peasy update!

Happy Spring!!!

Blessings, Grace

  1. Looks great, Gracie! I like how you used things from around your home. Like Layla says from TLC, "shop the house!" Love it!
