I'm so tired of Winter, I can't wait for Spring! The weather is taking forever to change. Today I was taking the pictures of my "Spring has Sprung" mantel, that was the only thing that looked like Spring! Outside the weather looked like we are in the middle of Winter, cooold and lots of snow coming down! Oh well!
My Spring mantel inspiration came from this:
Every time my daughter wore it I kept on thinking how I could use the bird images?! Time came for those birds to fly away, I did my own version, changing the wires for branches.
Using a piece of "art" I created long time ago for my daughter's bedroom, the new art was painted.
The birds were copied from the t-shirt and cut out. As soon as I get a new printer I'm going to add a free downloadable for the birds.
My helper having fun, as usual, punching out some leaves.
Some more materials.
The same vases I've been having on the mantel for a long time, got "fenced" :)
With the many pieces of wood that I have around, a little fence was created, I didn't even cover the nail holes, and one of the wood pieces was damaged, that gives it a more of a worn out feeling :)
My kids favorites, as usual, got out of storage.
That sticks game in a carrot still gets my son busy for a while.
One of my bunny bottle toppers gives company to the stringy poodle.
For now, I have to keep on looking at my mantel to remember that in fact Spring is coming, no matter what!
