2013 Spring Mantel

The calendar tells me that we are in a new season but outside it's still Winter. I know our turn is coming soon, so it was time to refresh the mantel.
I wanted our Spring mantel to have a warm and natural look with a vintage feel. Old books are such an easy way to add a bit of color and charm.
Vintage bottles are a favorite find of mine. I love the details of the raised letters and the unique stopper style tops that once held ale and tonic.
Warmer days and the welcome return of our feathered friends will let me know that Spring has arrived.
The simple wreath was made with split peas following a tutorial at Love of Family and Home.
The lovely vintage bird tags are from Lilac and Lavender. I simply printed them and placed them into the dividers of the printer drawers.
I am looking forward to hearing the lovely music of our seasonal guests.
 Are you in the midst of Spring or are you anxiously awaiting its arrival like I am?
