Spring Mantel-A late Bloomer

Deuteronomy 11:14

I know it's late in the season to be "springing" my Spring Mantel, but... Here it is!

I did my Mantel, way back when (when is that?) Back when I had my other blog, the one that disappeared!

So I thought I'd offer it up again, so next year I have something to look back on.

I was really into moss, it was such a beautiful bright green color in the yard, that I just had to bring some of it inside.

Scales are the best, they seem to fit into almost every "stage" know what I mean? They make anything look good.

My old tool box, some aged clay pots, and some gardening supplies, make this my "outside" on the "inside"

Forsythia was blooming then, in fact it wasn't even blooming outside yet, I brought some branches in and "forced" them.

 I painted an old rusty Birdcage, brought in some ivy (it didn't last long inside), but I sure enjoyed it for a short time.

Here's a close up of the "mossy log" I brought in, this was the jumping off point, everything else was added around it.

Thanks for re-Living my Spring with me~

Please leave a note and let me know you were here!

If you liked it, don't hesitate to pin it!

God Bless you, and Have a wonderful Day'
