Spring Mantel, Butterfly Print

Good Monday Morning!

I hope you had a great weekend.

We had a wonderful weekend , one filled with....
rest.........Going to see Children of Eden (a musical)........
eating slushies (our first of the season)........
worshipping with our new church family........
and shopping for a new sofa.

We think we have found the one for us, it is not what we/I thought we would do but I think it is the right one for where our family is at right now.
This means I have to get busy today taking pictures of the room the way it is now.
Because we all love a good before and after, right.

But before I get busy making over our family room, I wanted to fit in a Spring Mantel makeover,
Spring is my favorite time of year to decorate. You can read about and see  Last year's Spring Mantel
This year I wanted something light and airy with a nature theme.



I love the way it turned out.


These three milk bottles are recent gift from a friend, she knows me well, and the sweet eggs inside are from my sister and the butter churn--the butter churn has been used in my family for years, oh my I will end up turning this into a Sentimental Sunday post if I am not careful.



The jar on the left is a gift from a dear client, sorry I can't help it--I am a sentimental fool.


And this botanical print it is a gift from my dear friend Kellie, the even better news is she has gifted it to everyone, just click here and go get your own copy.
Thank you Kellie.



I will be back later this week to show you how I made my botanical art,
and tomorrow I have an awesome recipe for Mexican Meatloaf to share.


Until tomorrow,

Sit Relax and Read
