For this mantel, I brought out some of my favorite Easter decorations. Some I've had for ages; others are new creations or sweet hand-me-downs from my mom.
I love this new-to-me "happy easter" bunting. The cheery colors just shout, "Springtime is here!" My mom tucked it into a bag of goodies she gave to me when we were there for a visit recently.
This sweet embroidered bunny has been in my collection for a long time. I try to find a special place for her every year... this year she made the mantel! I've also always loved this little bunny candle holder. (I might need to find a new egg-shaped candle soon... this one has seen better days.)
These two bunnies sit next to a white tree that's been used for just about every holiday over the last 10 or so years. At Christmas it holds our Jesse Tree ornaments, then for Valentine's Day, it gets adorned with shiny red hearts. Years ago I found these sweet little wooden Easter ornaments and the sparkly eggs.
On the other side, you'll see I placed my Pom-Pom Bunny Tail Picture with a little bird finial and a sweet nest I picked up last year and one of my favorite little decor shops. I added in some sparkly eggs and ribbon to give it a little more color.
Here it is all pulled together from the front. Uh-oh... I spy some tiles that need to be cleaned up after all the fires in the fireplace this winter. Add that to my growing list of spring cleaning to-dos. Now that I'm looking at this head-on, I wonder if I should paint my round clock to lighten things up a bit... what do you think?
Thanks for stopping by! I love it when you visit! Have a wonderful week!
