Spring Mantel

I don’t know about you, but I am SO ready for spring.

I’ve been spending any free time in the flower beds, raking the lawn, and trying to freshen everything up. I love this time of year! Anthony is a busy bee too. Farming is officially underway and him getting home at 10:30 p.m. (or later) is our new normal. Quick, call 911- The tractor stole my husband!


Spring is in the air!

With that said, our mantel (aka kitchen shelves) was needing a little spring love too. No more winter shelves! I couldn’t take them for another minute!

I was craving wicker. Obviously.

And the thrift store helped me out!

Green apples are practically perfect for the color starved heart!

Green + wicker + white ceramics + apples + chalkboard art = A very happy lady.

The weather forecast for this weekend is sunny! I’m off to do a little more exterior sprucing… like painting exterior doors. And as much as a want to wash our windows, it’s too early! I’ll have to tell myself that repeatedly, or I might just do it!

Happy Weekend!
