It's always a little blah ... after the holidays and I still need to fill up my baker's cabinet with some things. I think our homes seem a little empty after having it stuffed full for the holidays. I tried to think about what would look right and could have a hint of freshness without seeming to seasonal or spring just yet. Catch my drift? I decided on leaving the shutters for now. I added a white star, my graniteware coffee pot filled with some white and green artificial flowers and some bright red apples near my red/white bowl with some raffia tucked underneath for added texture, and my black crow. My star candle holders seem to be my staple on this mantle. Some of my Sugar Pie Sisters may recognize my inspriration for this mantle too. I am going to look for a larger star, because I think the scale would just look better. Also, next time I will share some magazines that I have been inspired by and just love some ideas of their ideas for Spring.
Have a Blessed day! May the sun shine upon your face.
