Spring Looks on the Mantel

It is time to do some new looks for spring around the house.  The easiest place to start is on  the mantel.   I pulled out some brown transferware and added a little forsythia.  You know when it is time to prune the roses?  When the forsythia blooms.  My forsythia is fake. 

Here on the mantel, was a great place to put the little spring projects I have been working on.

How are you sprucing up your place for spring?

Ooooo!, Sherry ... how warm & lovely a setting. Love it.

Thank you.

Sherry your mantel looks so sweet and Spring like!

I haven't even gotten my spring things out. I have been so focused on getting things done in my creative space that all else has been forgotten! I finally had to vacuum and dust as it was looking mighty bad in the rest of the house!

Looks really pretty and "springy", Sherry. I love using nests and little eggs for spring decor, too. Here in northern IL, it's still cold with snow on the ground, so I'm still not completely ready to drag out all my spring decor!

Sherry it looks so pretty. I love the sweet little nests with the eggs. Those with the music sheets on them are darling.

Mom Wald said...

The details that they put into vintage and antique transferware is amazing. Thank you for doing a close up of the birds.

It is March, time to pull out the green! I rather like your eggs though.

The only sprucing up I'll be doing is vacuuming up drywall dust, so I'll just have to enjoy looking at your spring mantel! I did find a brown transferware plate with a farm scene the other day. I have no idea where I'll display it yet, but I'm sure I can find a spot. Yours look lovely on your mantel.

Love your spring mantel, and the tip about roses and forsythia! I have forsythia and roses!

Your mantel is lovely!

I haven't done anything to mine (yet) for spring - I guess I'd better start thinking of what to do!

It's so pretty. I love the candles, especially. I'm missing spring at home this year, due to being on the road, but look forward to sharing it with my fellow bloggers.

Gosh I haven't gotten to any spring projects yet. I always feel so behind everyone else. I'm always caughting up. Love your mantel, so very pretty. Thanks for sharing your creative inspiration at Sunday's Best. PS - added you to my circle at Google+

Carlene @ Organized Clutter said...

Love your mantel. Great post!

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

Beautiful! I can't grow forsythia OR roses so mine will be fake also :) Love the eggs in the nests and the peat pot -- I pinned this to my "Easter" board!

Bonnie said...

Your blog is aptly named. Your home is so charming and lovely. Each picture delights the eye.

Kelly said...

Well I didn't know that I was going to learn something new today by visiting your blog, but I did! I never knew that you should prune your roses when the forsythia blooms. I have some rose bushes that need that. Thanks for the tip! Your Spring vignettes look very pretty. Love those little bird nests too.

Cynthia said...

I love the transferware. Beautiful mantel.

Nancy @ Nancy's Daily Dish said...

Hi Sherry,

I just had to comment on how pretty your Spring vignette is! I love the Aesthetic Movement platter as well but the little trio of dishes holding the bird eggs is just adorable, and forsythia (fake or not) has always been a favorite of mine. You did a lovely job arranging this! It makes me want to snoop around the rest of your house and see all the pretties! =)

Your mantel looks beautiful and ready for spring. I love your musical eggs...hmm, must have come from a songbird! I really adore them. The forsythia looks great with the brown transferware. You are ready for spring!

Beautifully displayed vignette. Love the transferware with the soft glow of the mercury glass candles and then you added the perfect touch of Spring by adding the birds nest and sweet eggs. Love it,
Kathysue
