Well here we are in March…
It’s not quite spring, but I don’t want to believe that it’s still winter.  So what’s a girl to do?
Redecorate.  Oh yes.
 – – – 
Even though we have a foot of snow on the ground (it is melting), the sun is shining, and there is a glimmer of hope that spring is just around the corner.  So why not bring it inside!
 – – –  
I figured it was time for a mantel redo, so I decided to dress up my mantel for spring.  And you can too!  Shop around your home for colourful items, make a new wreath, buy some fresh flowers, bring in the garden by potting some indoor plants, have fun with it!  You’ll be amazed at how good it feels to give your home a mid-winter pick me up!

Pretty tulips on a mantel
Go to your local market and pick up some pretty tulips!  They brighten up any room!

Dream of summer grass with the addition of green!

  1. Looks like spring to me…love the tulips. I have red ones in my kitchen. And I was looking at my garden today and saw a few starting to push their way up through the dirt. It will be spring soon. Have a great weekend.


  2. I love the splashes of green that you have throughout your built-ins and mantel:) The tulips are just the perfect pop of bright color. Excellent job on the mantel:)

  3. you did very well.

    we don’t have spring here in the Philippines so i am quite curious how who people from other side of the world feels. we only have hot and cold season here in PH.

  4. Jo-Anna,

    Gorgeous! I can’t wait to decorate for spring, either! I have been following your blog since before the summer and know that I pinned your mantel once before for another season. This will be starting my Spring Pinterest folder!

    I just have to say that your blog is beautiful – so aesthetically pleasing. I was just thinking today that I should send you a message thanking you for the delicious yet simple recipes you share – tonight we had your roast pork with apples recipe (for at least the 4th time) and it has become a go-to recipe for our extended family as well.

    All the best,

    1. I’m so late in answering this e-mail – I’m SO sorry! I don’t know how it slipped through the cracks! Comments like yours are amazing, and they are the reason I blog! I can’t thank you enough for your kind words!

  5. Your mantel looks great. I especially love the simplicity of the single tulips- they almost look like a small garden. Great job.


  6. Such a beautiful mantel display, and I love your post with the poem worked in. New follower from Funky Junk, and I’d love it if you’d link this up at my Spring Mantel party, going on now @ the Delectable Home.

  7. Your spring mantel is so pretty. I have a love for old windows and anything architectural. The two white shelving units on either side really makes your stone fireplace stand out. Very lovely!
    I’m a new follower and would love for you to follow back on GFC.

  8. Oh, wow! This is stunning! I love everything about it! The tulips, the birds, everything! And I am soooo with you! I cannot wait for Spring…Of course, I’m in Louisiana and we are already having some spring weather…It’ just stinks that half the week is spring and the other half is winter…I never know what to wear! lol I would love for you to stop by and link to my Sew Crafty Saturday Party!

  9. Beautiful! I have been thinking of doing a spring mantle decoration as well. I’ve been a bit lax this year with my mantle. I kept a summer mantle up all year (except I threw in a few canles and Christmas decorations on it for show!). I just loved what I did over the summer – I have some beautiful carved shore birds that I got at a garage sale for a song, plus some coral and some sea fans. I love it and I didn’t want summer to end I guess.

    So – maybe I can put my summer decorations on hiatus for a while and bring on the tulips and greenery!

    Thanks for your beautiful inspiration. I was featured as well on Stephanie’s Under the Table and Dreaming blog.


  10. Before you add moisture to the slices of the bread
    will start to change and the mold makers. Now wear
    the gloves and mask and start spraying the prepared solution on the affected area
    is small and there is adequate ventilation in the house, get it
    fixed right away. Make sure that you keep the room dry and cut off any left more than mold that does not necessarily indicate the
    presence of mold in yourbathroom: start outby using vinegar.

  11. It’s not my first time to visit this website, i am visiting this website dailly and get fastidious
    data from here everyday.

    1. Hi Lisa! We aren’t the original owners of this home, so I don’t really know where it came from. But it looks like the ‘stone’ is a formed stone of some sort. I’m sure if you talked to a fireplace company they would be able to help you out! 🙂
