spring mantle in bloom

Happy Monday, friends!
It was a gorgeous spring weekend, one of my favorite spring sights are the profusion
of beautiful crabapple trees blooming throughout our city. We're fortunate enough to have a
 huge tree in our backyard, I love bringing the branches inside and was inspired to create a
spring arrangement for our mantle.

 My abstract from Kerry Steele Art easily moves from room to room and is always a
 favorite to bring out for spring and summer. The intricate black scribble is by me,
detailed tutorial to come, haha! :)

Layering the sunburst mirror and artwork in front of a larger mirror adds dimension
 and interest. Off topic, but I don't think I've ever mentioned how much I dislike the
 color of our mortar - ugh! It has this peachy hue to it. (Except in a couple of these pics
it looks like a totally weird yellow!)
 One of these it's going to make it to the top of the to-do list!

Grab your pruners and go cut yourself a huge vase of anything fresh and green from
 your yard, and have a wonderful week!

So pretty Pam. I am hoping my neighbor will let me clip a few of hers. Nothing says spring more than some blooming branches :)

My mother had a pair of the gold peacocks - the tall one you show here and a short, more horizontal companion. She adored them. Never, ever did I think I would again see them used in fashionable d├ęcor. I saw a pair in a Denver (Broadway) antique store a year or so ago - perhaps that's where you got them?
