Simple Spring Mantel

Dear Friends,
I’ve been fixated on simple, clean decor as of late.  I knew I wanted the spring mantel to reflect that.  I’m still working on the bookcase project as well so the less busy the better.   I kept these photos cropped to keep the bookshelf under wraps.

Those eggs are from Michael’s last year.

The wreath below needs a dose of spring flowers.  I don’t have any in the yard yet and the fake ones looked fake.  I’m still working on that.  Consider this look pre-spring just like the weather.

The “nest” pennant is a new addition.  I made that on Friday on a whim.

With daylight savings time,  I’m seeing more light in this room.  The mirror really sparkles!

I used the candlestick holders from the dining room.  The boxwood balls are sitting in bowls from my dining set. The gold footed bowl was a recent HomeGoods purchase.

I realize that the mantel is probably more visually appealing without the pennant but I’m a sucker for a little does of cute here and there.  Also, the look wasn’t overly spring without it.

Did you do a spring mantel?  Feel free to put a link in the comments if you did.  I would love to see yours!  We got a dose of spring weather this weekend – I can’t wait for the real deal.
