Mantel 2 for spring

As I said...we have a lot of flowers here at Brandywine.  (Even as I type this, I'm planning mantel 3.)

This time I made a garland to hang in front.  I used an old book from an estate sale (ordinarily, I would NEVER tear up a book, but parts of it were severely water stained) and followed Sherry's directions here!

That's very effective. I don't have a mantel in my current house. I miss it but there's one less thing to dust.

I just pinned the banner so I will remember to make one - love it!

Did you see the John Oliver, Last Week Tonight show, about testing? It was funny and scary!

Look at you Kirby! I love when you get your craft on. Your mantel is very pretty. Thank you for the shout out. Hope you have a great Mothers Day!

Oh how I dream of a cutting garden in my yard. But, alas, I must purchase my flowers from the grocery store. Loving mantel #2! :)
