Hey guys!! Sorry I have been away not this past Friday but the Friday before Jackson was having a temper tantrum and threw a toy phone at our desk which knocked over my coffee and spilled all over our laptop!!! AHHH Someone save me from the terrible two's! Anyhow later that day it wouldn't turn on so a friend of ours knows his ways around computers and finally got it to work, but the keyboard and mouse don't work so we are using a usb keyboard and mouse until we can either find someone to fix it or just eventually buy a new laptop. I am so glad that it works though! I had good intentions to show you our Spring mantle this past Sunday, but we were working out back getting stuff out for the bulk trash pickup. My husband was snapping these big palm tree leaves in half and a peice broke off and went in to his leg, he could barely even walk so we headed to the ER. It actually went into to different spots in his leg one on the side of his knee and the other in the back of his calf, they were able to get the one on the side of the knee out pretty fast but the calf one wasn't so easy. They ended up having to do an ultrasound to see where it was at and then cut open his leg some to get it out! Here's a picture of what came out!
Alright, now on to my Spring Mantle!
Here's a full view. I didn't spend any money creating this look! Love that!
After Christmas I placed this arrangement in the center on the mantle, I had this in the kitchen before. I added some green hydrangeas and feathers to it.
Here's a closeup of the arrangement.
To the sides I kept my urns from Kirkland's on either side and added a flower covered egg that I made last year along with a candlestick and birds nest that I also made a few years ago I got the idea from Liz at Savvy Seasons and a moss bunny from Michael's.
A view of the other side.
For the bottom I added a spring/easter candle ring to my candles and on one side I have a vase and some greenery.
The other side I added a bird cage filled with more flower covered eggs and little chick inside and some greenery.
Here's a closeup of the bird cage.
If your wondering on how to make the eggs I just bought a bag of plastic eggs and a hydrangea bush that I pulled all of the flowers off and glued them on with a hot glue gun its a little time consuming but they turn out so pretty! I am going to be making some more for some Easter tablescapes. We are hosting Easter this year so I will be sharing with you our tables soon!
Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the week!!
