I was starting to get tired of my Easter mantel....Yes, most of my Easter decorations were still up as of today--according to the Church Year, Easter is celebrated through Pentecost (last Sunday). Since you haven't seen my Easter mantel--here is the before:
I'm linking to:
Notice how I recycled the bottle brush trees and pastel paper houses from Christmas!
Now for the After:
I didn't buy anything new to re-do this, I just 'shopped the house'!
I love all the vintage silver, mercury glass, and the mini tiaras!
I snatched many of these items from my centerpiece on my dining room table.
I love these cherub candle holders! They were $0.98 for the pair! Check out the reflection of the chandelier in the mirror--so pretty!
Again, I must confess, all the flowers are fakes!
I recycled all these usually Christmas decorations for Spring!
I got this painting at a thrift shop last summer. It is the same picture Julia Sugarbaker has in her office on Designing Women. So sad that Dixie Carter passed away recently! Luckily we have some of her best acting on DVD!
So you see, you don't have to break the bank for a whole new look!
I hope you have enjoyed this view of my home! Comments are always appreciated!
