Lightening Up the Mantle

As the weather FINALLY gets warmer and more Springlike, I like to lighten things up a bit. So, I redid the mantle. It was too heavy and was bothering me. Here's what I did: I removed the garland, made a new arrangement and used lots of birds!
 The hearth is a little lighter too. I placed a bunch of dried lavender in one of my vases and it smells SO good!

 Since the artwork has a blue and white jar with a bird on it I used blue and white birds, blue candles,and a small blue and white piece.

 The candles are LED and give a soft glow at night. The blue bird is perched on a nest which is perched on a glass candle stick.










Thanks for your visit. It means alot to me.

A Mother's Day Gift means a new Vignette

Good morning! I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's day! I sure did and if you follow me on Facebook you can see some pictures. Joe bought me a GORGEOUS orchid so that meant a new vignette on the coffee table. I really love it and am going to TRY to keep it alive:) It is the most beautiful color!

 This flower on the back is so pale and I imagine it will deepen.

 I made the vignette in my white metal tray that I love for Spring.
 I had to use a piece that would be tall enough to work with the height of the orchid.
 This guy is one of my favorite Asian pieces.
 Of course a nest was added for Spring.

 I placed 2 of my pear candles in a blue and white bowl.
 And at night I lit the candles.

Spring has Sprung in my Kitchen!

I love Spring. I love the month of May! The weather FINALLY changes, I get to buy and plant flowers and everything comes alive. I also like to surround myself inside with signs of Spring, and the kitchen gets some Spring love! I did a little vignette on the kitchen bar with birds and nests.
 The wire cloches with the bird finial surround some herb (faux) pots.




 Over at the buffet area I did a birdcage, a small arrangement, and one of my gardening gnomes. Colleen really liked him and his tiny bucket. We had her this weekend:)
 This platter was a gift from a cousin and I used my other gnome and a small bird.

 At this end I gathered 3 cloches and filled them with nests, pots, and birds. Excuse the Alexa speaker:)




 The cloche on the fridge has a nest painted on one side and a butterfly on the other side. The candle is on a timer so comes on each night.


 This is a candle holder and I have a lily of the valley candle in it that smells SO good!
 Another vignette by the sink features my favorite lamp, another cloche and a nest and a small bunny.

I put 4 of my 8 herb plates in the glass cabinets. I love them there.

 I have had the spoon rest for YEARS and found the utensil holder last year at Joann Fabrics!
 I made this stand just by turning a bowl upside down and placing a large glass cake plate on top! I got the idea from Pinterest.

Thanks for your visit. I hope Spring has sprung at your house too!
