Spring Mantel

Hi Everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend. I have been a busy bee around here getting all my spring projects ready for this fun 6 Days of Spring Series. I’m so excited to be included in such a great group and hope you all check out all the other amazing ideas everyday (don’t worry I will include all the links at the bottom of my post everyday, so you don’t miss a thing!)


First up is my spring mantel…

Spring here in Michigan typically takes forever to arrive and this year is no exception, it’s actually snowing as we speak.

I wanted to keep my mantel fresh, light and green, unlike dreary Michigan.

Do the white boards look familiar? I flipped my Winter Sign over. It’s just 3 boards I cut, nailed together, then white washed.

I love the bright color of this spanish moss, and yes these are fake plants, but they are pretty cute little fake plants. I  actually specialize in killing house plants, it’s sort of a hobby of mine. I like to blame our well water, but really it has more to do with my lack of watering with said well water…


How sweet is this bunny? I may be getting ahead of myself with bunnies and eggs and veering toward Easter, but it’s not too far off.

Speaking of eggs, I wanted to add some to my mantel but couldn’t figure out what to use that would look like eggs. After scouring the house I finally thought, um, duh, how about eggs?

Disclaimer: No eggs were scrambled in the decorating of this mantel…

I love how cheery this feels, even if it’s still all white and blizzardy outside…

Are birds chirping in your neck of the woods yet?

As promised here are the links for more fun and inspiring spring ideas –

  1. Love all the fresh (looking) green! And the little bunny is so darling. It takes forever for “real” Spring to arrive here in Colorado, too. I think I’m going to get some wheat grass going in containers soon :)
    Thanks for getting us in the Spring mood!


  2. Hi Kelli,

Tomorrow’s forcast is winter storm advisory {we live in a small village on a lake in the thumb, about 90 miles north of Detroit} up to 6 inches of the nasty 4 letter word! I just found your blog through a pinterest pin and LOVE it!!! Now for the questions~~~where did you get those great herb pots for your faux plants,your sweet bunny and the ‘NEST’ pillow? I just might have to stalk and copy you, is that a problem? hehe :)
