Blue Spring Mantel

The stage is set

Don't you think a fireplace mantel is similar to a stage. The center focus in a room. The place where all the characters gather and take their assigned places, often times being rearranged at the very last minute. Previously, we showed you some of our cast members such as the Blue Spring Wreath,  Spring Flower Candles,  Little Blue Spring Garden Flowers  and Sheet Music Pinwheel Flowers. Now the stage is set, everyone is in their place, the curtains are open for viewing.

Simple blue and white was what we went with after all the Easter decor came down. We loved how so many of you creatively used picture frames and window frames in your decorating, particularly on the mantels, that we wanted to give it a try also.

So we framed some of our mantel characters and we liked the way they turned out.

Love Mr. Bluebird in the mix. We picked him up last year on clearance at Michael's. Our blue flower pots are a combination of dollar tree and thrift store shopping.

We did switch out our mantel clock for our blue flower candles.

We did try to decorate the mantel without the mantel mirror hoping we would like it and wanting to try something different, however, it just was not looking right. So we promptly put the mirror back on the mantel.

This blue won our hearts for after Easter Spring decorating. What will it be for Summer now?!

We hope you are enjoying all the beautiful colors of Spring. Be inspired. Get creative!

A lying tongue hates those who are crushed by it,
And a flattering mouth works ruin.
Proverbs 26:28
