Mantle Makeover (a little late for Monday)

Hello! Just wanted to show you a quick change that I was finally happy with in the kids playroom.  Their little family room area upstairs gives me real problems.  I loved my Christmas display but I haven't been happy with it till now.  I have some crows upstairs on another wall so I thought this just fit right in with it.  Also, I was trying to incorporate the lamps but I don't have three of them.  So the perfectionist in me knows I'm breaking my own rule here.  It's been sitting with just the two and some other mismatched things since after Christmas but I finally found something I like.  I wish I had taken a before shot to show you the difference. 

I think the green sprigs in the crock give a hint as to the next season.  I don't have a lot of green in my house so it's hard to find something to complement that green lamp.  It was a gift when I was newly married so I want to hang onto it though. 

Have a great day!
