Spring was in the air this weekend, so I decided to decorate the great room mantel.

The mantel is covered with flowers that I purchased from my local market and I decided to nestle in some of my foil wrapped bunnies.  On either end, I used a piece of mercury glass and a vase to hold some beautiful tulips and another green glass vase to hold the other tulips. Unfortunately, I can’t plant tulips outside (I do go overboard with hundreds of daffodils though!).

The framed ivory piece is a new purchase I made from www.elizabethembellishments.com that will probably find a more permanent home in my dining room on one of my extra tables.

All of these flowers make me believe spring is really coming to New Jersey soon!
