There is something to be said for all the seasons,
each beautiful in its own way,
but there is something extra special about SPRING!
bright and beautiful,
beauty for the eyes to behold,
Not only do I love this season, but it's the first spring for decorating in the keeping room!
I've been itching to add a little something to the mantel
and these recent warm, sunshine filled days, got me digging through my stash.
The first thing added was a little pedestal and a birds nest
placed on the side table in front of the fireplace.
For the mantel I gathered a few Ball mason jars.
Extra flowers from making wreaths for the front doors in years past.
I don't spend much on flowers that will be used outdoors so these didn't cost much back when I bought them.
I wasn't sure at first if I would use the crackle paper or moss.
A birds nest and bird.
I ended up using the crackle paper.
First I filled the bottom of each mason jar.
Then I cut a few sprigs of flowers for each vase.
Holding a few of the flower sprigs together, I bunched the crackle paper around the stem just before inserting into the jar.
After adjusting the flower placement, I added more crackle paper inside the mason jar filling to the top with a little spilling over the edge.
I used another small white pedestal for this bird to sit on.
I'm hoping to keep my spring decorating to little or no cost
and adding these touches to the mantle in the keeping room didn't cost any moola!
Are you as excited as I am that spring is finally here?!
