Spring Mantel

I was feeling very inspired by the Spring sunshine today.....this is what happened......

Oh, I love Spring!
Here's another view
Here are a few of the details....I painted this little frame with Americana acrylic paint, "lemonade". I then used a nail file to sand the edges, because I was too lazy to go outside and find sand paper,  because I am very resourceful. I took the picture of the fresh eggs a few weekends ago at a farm.
The rocks in the votive holder were hand painted in shades of Spring by my #1 helper, my soon to be 4 year old. He is quite the DIYer. I love the way they turned out! The "moss covered rocks" in the tall vase seem to be very popular according to the Pottery Barn catalog....they became very popular with me the second I found them at the Dollar Tree today ;)
Overall, I am pretty happy with the way it turned out. Our mantel usually doesn't see this much action until Christmas.
Thanks so much for stopping by! While you are here, I would love if you would follow me!
(leave me a comment and I will share the "following" love)
