Spring Mantel

I gave you a sneak peek last week of the unfinished wood decorations I had gotten at Michael's.  I finally got them finished and up on the mantel!

After I painted the first bird blue I wished I had painted it yellow so I ran back to Michael's and got another one.  I used the same colors that I used on the Spring sign I made.  Kinda matchy matchy but love it anyway!!


The flowers were $1 and the birds were $2.99 but I noticed when I was in there Sunday they are 30% off this week.  All of the birds were gone or I probably would have picked up another one.

On a side note I finally started the Hunger Games, thanks to an early birthday gift from a friend.   I love to read but lately just haven't had time.  I started The Help right after it came out and made it through two chapters. I was having a hard time with the slang.  Next thing I know it is the book of the year and everyone is raving about it.  Didn't pick it back up but I did see the movie and wish I had.  Loved it!  Borrowed The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo from a friend and it remains unopened.  So, I figure for once I am going to attempt to be on the current bandwagon and in the know!

Check out all of the places I party here!

  22. Those birds are just too cute! I'll have to keep my eye out for some at Michales! I just went to see the Hunger Games last night. I was thinking that it would have been a good book to read.
