Friday's Favs...A simple spring mantel



After Valentine's Day was over, I simply removed my wooden X and O from the mantel
 and the galvanized hearts that were hung from the branch that hangs over the mirror window.
You can see my Valentine mantel here.
Then I draped the fabric pennant garland that I made last spring from the branch.


 I added my owl vase that's sporting his "faux" succulent hairdo and called it good.
Easy peasy!


On another note, I found this little preserved boxwood wreath on sale at Target a few days ago.
I decided that this was the perfect place for it.


I'm kind of lovin' it!



Well, it's almost Friday, friends.
Have a HAPPY, HAPPY Friday
and 
a BLESSED weekend!

  4. I really like the fabric pennant garland and the cute little owl vase. My mantle is a mess . . . empty because I just can't ever decide what to put there! Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Well, the garland cost maybe $5 to make and the owl was at JoAnn's Fabric a long time ago for a few dollars. So, I know you can do this simply and inexpensively!

  6. You are so good with decorating. My mantel is always so blah.... it's also such a dark part of the room. I need some help. I hate to buy new stuff, but I'm beginning to think I might need some new decs to spruce it up.

  10. Your spring mantel is beautiful! I have an old window pane that I am going to use somewhere, and this gives me another good idea. Thanks for sharing! Pinning now. :)

  12. There is beauty in simplicity for sure! I love what you've done- so fresh and springy. :) My Mom has the same white cow, I'll have to suggest the wreath around it situation. It looks great! I am in love with your little owl planter too. My houseplants have been dying lately... I guess its more important to keep my kids alive right now ha! :)
