Spring Mantel 2014

I'm ready for spring! I dressed up my mantel with a gold flower mirror, vases off natural branches, butterflies, nests, and birds. I have also added some spring to the coffee table. Now if I can just finish the rest of the house! This warmer weather is putting me in the mood to decorate! I hope it's warming up where you live!
 








 Wishing you a wonderful spring!! Thanks for stopping by!

I'm joining Savvy Southern Style for WOW.

Everything is beautiful! Can you please share where you got your fire screen? My fireplace is build like yours with no hearth and I haven't been able to find one that's tall enough. Thanks.
