I have long loved how beautifully and seemingly effortlessly Courtney of French Country Cottage and Mary Alice of Chateau Chic have used old books and mason jars in their mantel decorating. (I'm sure there are others - but these were the first two who came to mind!).
I was especially drawn to this look because old books and mason jars are items I already have on-hand!
So, I snipped a few flowering branches from the yard and simply added a few books, jars and the branches to our existing mantel decor...
These trees in our front yard, are now in full-bloom. Even when it is still dark outside, their white flowers seem to be illuminated - almost like fresh fallen snow! They catch my eye from our laundry room windows. I am in awe of the Creator's artistry!
I hope it's beginning to feel like spring where you live. I know many have had an extra cold and long winter... and are extra ready for spring this year!
What do you have planned today?
I'm off to our youngest's field trip, which is to the grocery and pet store... so today especially, here's to finding beauty and wonder in the ordinary! ;)
