A Fresh, Floral Spring Mantel

This is the time of year where we start longing for Spring to come, especially here in Alberta, Canada where the snow is still up to our knees. Our kids do love the snow and all of the fun that comes with it (and I mostly enjoy its beauty), but we’re definitely ready for milder temperatures so that we can play outside more (cabin fever, anyone?). In faith that Spring will indeed come soon, I’ve decorated our mantel with fresh and faux florals and greenery. It’s instantly brightened up our living room, and the sight of blooms makes me hopeful that Spring is just around the corner.

I recently got to go on a shopping spree to Urban Barn (it was part of my prize package for winning this contest), and one of my favourite purchases is a massive vintage-looking clock. I think it makes the most gorgeous vintage industrial centerpiece for our mantel.Continue reading
