Easter day is drawing near so I thought I would share with you my Easter mantles. The first one is really a shelf, but gives the same effect.
My mantles are one of the first things I decorate for the holidays. It’s always fun and I just love looking up and seeing something cheerful.
In the living room I have a shelf made from half of an old door and three vintage corbels. Hubby built it for me and I love it! Notice the reflection of my entry in the mirror. Yes, the sky is still falling. lol!
Bunnies and chicks are scattered throughout. My velvet bunny sits on a mercury glass plate stand while a paper mache egg and furry chick rest below. A chick riding bunny and a silver egg hide inside a cloche. The little duck candy box is so old. I think it’s ever so sweet. Another little chick sits upon a book. I love using old books for elevation in my vignettes. And a faux chocolate rabbit and paper goodie basket complete the scene.
I found this spooner at a thrift store. The inside was lined with copper. A little bottle with an Easter scene sits atop a piece of old china.
This fun hatbox covered with coffee filters was made by my hair dresser and friend, Shalana. Here’s a better picture of the corbels. I love them! Originally I bought them to put on my kitchen island. Hubby wasn’t keen about that idea so he gladly used them on this shelf.
The family room mantle. . . You know me, no vignette would be complete without a bit of vintage. My turquoise window was found when I went on a picking adventure with friends. We got to pick an old barn.
A bunny box, (again, an old book for elevation), a plate I won at bunko, and a thrifted mini wheelbarrow holding a carrot. The wreath I bought from Décor Steals. Oh that Décor Steals can get you in trouble. Hee-hee! I added pale lavender and pink ribbons and a birdcage tag I made. An old frog holds an Easter postcard.
The two finials I bought for half price at Hobby Lobby. I loved the aqua and pale green color. Can I just say that I thought the half price was about what normal price should have been. Does anyone besides me think their regular prices are way high? Chicken little is still pecking for seeds.
Kind of hard to see, but inside the stitched cage is a white wool bird.
Here’s what’s hanging out on the hearth. I love my old bottles filled with Spring flowers. I got the large bunny for $5 because one foot was broke off. I knew with a little hot glue she’d be good as new.
My darling spoolie swap box.
Hard to believe that soon I will have another mantle to decorate. My basement fireplace is finished and I am loving it. I finally have a white mantle! They are painting the walls today. Can’t wait to start sharing the fun!
I hope Easter has hopped into your home. It’s a nice welcome for Spring.
