Show and Tell Friday...

Welcome To My Third Show and Tell Friday hosted by Cindy at Romantic Home.

I thought I would show you a few pictures of my mantle decorated for spring. I just love the adorable grouping of the three birdhouses I used. They are all different heights so it makes the display more interesting. I especially love the smaller birdhouse with the tin roof coverd with vines, leaves and a pink flower. I added a sweet tin bird that I found at JoAnn Fabrics. The little birds sitting ontop of the grapevine nests were purchased at Michaels. I just loved the crackle finish on these birds, they look vintage. If you come a little closer you will see the tiny cloche with the birds nest and roses inside of it. It is so cute, I just had to buy it when I saw it last year. At the left end of the mantle is a boxwood topiary, a Valerie Parhill candle topped with a Yankee Candle shade and few more birds that I found at the Dollar Store. I love the twinkle of the candles as the sun sets each evening. I hope you enjoy your little peak of my mantle. Happy Spring, Happy Summer, it's on it's way!
Please be sure to stop by and visit Cindy at Romantic Home and thank her for hosting "Show and Tell" Friday!
