Bring on {Spring Mantle} & Linky Party

Hurry Spring!
Now that the calendar tells us that it is March,
I'm bringing out the Spring decor. 

I don't know about you, but I need some GREEN around here to bring a little springtime cheer.


If you've followed my blog for awhile, you know that I have the 
most unusual mantle there ever was.
The reason is that this fireplace is shared.

On the other side of this wall and fireplace is our kitchen,
so the fireplace is seen in there as well.
And yes, I have a full stone fireplace surround and mantle.
More fun to decorate! (I'll be posting my kitchen mantle soon)
So this one is deep with side "wings" that shoot out 6" or so.
This gives the mantle great depth and plenty of options to play with when it comes to decorating.
I rarely keep things symmetrical.
But, hopefully you can use most of these ideas 
at your house as well.
The moss cross I made a few years ago and usually it sits on the entryway table. I decided to put it front and center with this chippy peeling frame to highlight it.
 You can find the tutorial HERE.
I'll be adding my "He is Risen" banner to the mantle in a few weeks. It's a favorite of mine and you can check out the full post HERE.
Here's some more Spring Decor eye candy for you!
If you're a blogger, then link up any Spring project/post.
And if you love to be inspired, then click on the thumbnails
and get ready to see some beautiful Springy goodies.
