As you can see, I kept it super simple, and very similar to my Valentine's mantle. I brought in that Spring feeling by adding the white bird on the left and the adorable white Duck pitcher on the right! I found that at the thrift shop the other day. It may end up at the barn sale in a week and a half, but I figured for now I could enjoy it filled with some pretty
I always love to have my white pom pom garland when I keep it simple- it adds a nice touch without being too much.
The left side features some silver vintage candlesticks, white candles, and a sweet white bird.
The right side features more white candles, and of course the sweet duck, which I have named Lily for the time being. Is't she sweet? Quack.
So there you have it.... simple Spring mantle!
Now, just for fun, I wanted to share some of Emmy's latest writings. She loves to write and is not afraid to just sound out words she doesn't know.
We read a little book about trees and then we talked about how trees help us and what we can do to help them. Later that evening, she created this..... And then we sang cumbaya.
Yesterday while she was at school I flipped through the writing journal I gave her. We recently told the kids that we would be traveling to California (Califory, here on out in this posting) for my brother's wedding this fall, and that we would take them to Disneyland. Clearly, the wedding is exciting for Emmy, but Disneyland might just trump it! And apparently she really wants to hit Utah, too.
And finally, her teacher this year is a huge Jan Brett fan, and that has rubbed off on Emmy. Emmy apparently wanted to write a letter to Jan Brett to let her know what a fan she is.
That child warms my heart so much, and I knew these musings would have the same effect on you, so I had to share.
Happy Wednesday! If you are digging out, or getting buried at the moment, stay safe!
