Touches of Spring

I love Springtime and since warmth has started creeping into the day with the sun shining bright and flowers blooming prettily I have been trying to bring it indoors with me. So I thought I would share some touches of spring that have sprung up in my den over the past couple of weeks.

First is a funky little vignette I set up on one side of my Mantle (or shelf over my Wood stove... yah whatever! I'm going to pretend its a mantle since its there is some semblance of a fire under it when it gets cold out)

I clipped a few flowering branches from a shrub in my side yard, placed them in a small canning jar, and then placed a painted wooden frame around the whole thing.  then,just to set off the yellow and white, I added that sweet little turquoise-ish blue bird.  I adore it!

Here is the rest of my Mantle just to show it to you in its entirety.
I know the Mantle clock front and center and isn't really spring-ish, but it was my grandmother and grandfathers and I absolutely adore it.  So whatever the season it will remain on my mantle (or until my mother gets completely moved into her house and decides it will once again look fabulous on her mantle).
Pin It

I hope you enjoyed this small touch of spring and I have a few more touches to share in a post later this week.

I would love to hear how you have been bringing spring and sunshine into your home, so leave me a comment telling me all about it.

Have a great day and God bless!


  1. Love the pretty blossoms. What a neat idea to "frame" them.

  2. Looks wonderful. Love that little bird, too. :) I have been using a lot of yellow to bring Spring to my home! It's so happy!
