Spring/Easter Mantel (the Full Monty)

TGIF, friends!  After a week that culminated with my son’s 18th birthday (!) and an Easter Egg hunt with 14 crazy little people, I’m very happy to see Friday!  And just in time for Easter, I’m finally sharing my spring/Easter mantel with you patient people…

A few things remain… my mirror, my sconces, my antique open frame and my sheet music candles

The hydrangeas in my DIY mercury glass vase are actually ones I cut last summer from my backyard!!  They dried so nicely, didn’t they?  And I had nothing to do with it, other than letting them dry in a vase. 🙂

And what’s a spring/Easter mantel without a bunny or two?  I love these two bunnies that I got at Coldwater Creek a few years ago.  They have an amazing texture.

Cute, no?

My urn is a Willow House (retired) product that I’ve so enjoyed… note the fleur de lis. 🙂  The orb I ordered from Joss & Main back in January.  I’m thinking about trying to train an ivy to grow on it??

And of course my DIY Moss Ball!  The urn is an old (11 years!) Southern Living at Home product from their original decor line.  So sad these great pieces are gone.

And you got a peek at my DIY chalk paint eggs on Monday…

I’m sharing the full tutorial and details of this project over at Mohawk Homescapes blog, where I am now a contributing blogger!  I’d love it if you’d click over and show me a little comment love… I’m thrilled to be partnering with the good folks at Mohawk.

And here’s the full picture again…

Have I told you lately how grateful I am for all of you??

I’d love it if you’d enter my Happy Birthday giveaway!  Just my way of thanking you for reading my gibber gabber…

The giveaway closes Saturday at midnight, so there’s still time to enter!  A Home Depot giftcard and an assortment of spring Willow House products is up for grabs!!

Yesterday I showed a little sponsor love and offered up a spring advertising package, too.  I’d love to help you promote your handmade shop or small business.  Click here for details.


Alot of stuff, no?  But I can’t end without a pic of my birthday boy/man… so proud of the fine young man he’s become!

He’s on the right, getting some bday love from his younger bro.  Love these guys… being a Boy Mommy changed me forever. 🙂

Happy Easter to you and yours!  I don’t normally post on the weekends, but tomorrow I am sharing a special post I wrote two years ago about Mary on the day after her Son died upon the cross for us.  I hope it will bless you.
