Spring Mantel On a Cloudy Day

 

March_21_2012 014

It seems no matter when I want to take home decor pictures I get a cloudy and/or rainy day…but I won’t complain because I love the rain, and we had an unseasonably warm and dry fall and winter! “Mostly Neutral” would be the way I would describe this year’s mantel.  I love the soothing, natural colors.

I mostly “shopped the house” of course…except for the 3 pots above (Dollar Tree), 3 new half-price Michael’s birds (scattered around the house – I use birds year-round, which is why I like to buy birds that are in neutral colors), the real ivy plants, and faux grass (also from Michael’s – 40% off)

I got the idea for the faux grass in the hurricane from Jen @ At Home in the Northwest. I used a battery operated candle with a timer – love that I don’t have to think much about lighting & blowing them out and they can be lit even when the ceiling fan or air conditioning are on!
