Spring At Home....

Finally!  I was beginning to think I'd never get my mantle and house ready for Spring!  But, ta da, it's done and I'm so ready to enjoy the warm, sunny days with a fresher, simpler look!  Since I've gotten my winter stuff put up and my spring decor out, it just seems so much lighter and brighter in here,
and boy,  was I ready for a change! 






























My window was free, found in an alley by the trash, the 2 topiaries, on sale at Target,
artichokes free from my old boss's shop, vintage sugar, $3.00 from my old store,
little bird, $1.00 from my old store.

Till next time......
Rebecca
