A hope for spring

IMG_4752

I’ve been sharing my decorated fireplace mantel over the last few seasons…fall to winter to spring.

Bunnies, chicks, and eggs celebrate March and maybe a little April.

Outside is rainy and windy, very un-spring-like, if you ask me.  So inside, I decorate and pretend it is already spring.  I drag out my ‘spring’ container and start organizing.  I incorporate some seasonal platters, gifts, and plates.  Instead of buying more, I try to go around the house and see what else I can include.  I carefully display my grandmother’s sun hat. The garden hand rake is my dad’s and reminds me of his love for gardening.

    I love that you include items from your family instead of buying stuff. Beautiful. 🌸🌿🌼

      Thank you, Sarah. If I buy things, I usually wait until the holiday has passed and then snap up some sale at 50% off. Some things I make, others are connected to memories. It does lift my spirits as I pass through the room.
