Spring Green & White Shabby Birds on Our Mantel

I really was going to wait to post our mantel reveal after I shared the DIY's on my nest and topiaries, but I'm jumping ahead and sharing it with you today instead!

Several months ago we painted two walls, in our living room, a soft, spring green. I wish my photos would show their true color. No matter how I adjust my camera or edit the pics I just can't get it right :(

I think you'll like my changes for the season, anyway...at least I do!

Do you like how the scripted butterfly landed on the trio of shabby green and white books? I just adore shabby, vintage books and butterflies always have a special meaning to me.




I shared a post on my super cheap spring wreath, last week, with my vintage frame. The link to it is at the end of this post.

I gathered birds from around the house to add them to the mantel.



I made twin topiaries for the candle sconces.

This, cast iron, cutie is hiding in it's nest inside my really old, antique, buttocks basket.

I'd love to paint the red brick white!

Faux, branches with buds drape the fireplace insert.

I made this nest in a nice big size and think it turned out really nice.

I always like to add some "glam!"

The butterfly is a very special, cherished ring.

Faux hydrangeas in white and green fill my, white washed, bushel basket.

I shared the post on Mom's old chair and wee basket last week, too.



Here's one last look with our, little boy, "Gucci"

and where is peeks out the window, too!



More on this wreath here!

 I think this look will be staying around for a while....."Honey" really likes it!

  Love, Hugs and Kisses,
JP
and Gucci, too!
Can you see him? He's playing "peek-a-boo!

I'm thrilled that this post was featured over @ staceyembracingchange and "thank you" Stacey!

I love the butterfly. That was a sweet touch.

I also loved the bird. (One of my weaknesses when it comes to decorating. I just might need an intervention one day. Lol!)
