I added little whimsical "nests" to these Ikea lanterns I had on the porch.

I shared my AQUA LADDER BOOKSHELF the other day.  More fun with color.  I am really switching up my normally "neutral" color scheme this Spring.

  1. Yes it seems Old Man Winter wanted one more laugh at our expense. Hopefully all this snow will melt fast with the warm temps coming tomorrow!

    Love your mantel, so creative and unique.

  2. I'm certainly ready for some sunshine. We did have THREE days in a row and it was heaven. But yesterday it was sleety and rainy and foggy and grey and very wintery feeling. I am always anxious for spring but this year tops them all. My winter mantle still taunts me - even as I drape the little colorful Easter egg bunting across it for photographs! Maybe this weekend I will get to it.

  3. And one more thing - love the way your mantle looks. I just picked up 3 antique children's bowling pins (about half the size of "adult" bowling pins). Ideas???? What should I do with them?

  4. Love your mantel and those chalkboards...have them on my junkin' list this weekend. Hopefully we'll be getting a little sunshine here this weekend, but it's pouring rain right now.

  12. Your rusty sun and the chalkboards are fabulous, Laurel! At least you have some sunshine in your living room :). I would gladly send you some but it's raining here today and tomorrow. I thought of adding a bit of color here and there but I'm not sure I'm ready yet.
    Have a great weekend!
    Hugs,

  13. Oh man...I have been loving the sun lately. Being down here in the southern part of the country feels good this time of year but once summer come ---- aaack! It's too hot. Wishing for sun to come your way! :)

  14. So clever and so sad that we all still seem to be waiting for spring to make an appearance. Love the billiard ball with the eggs too!
