Spreading Some Love; Spring Mantel Features

***Please Note*** 
My blog has had some serious picture failure 
and I am replacing photos as fast as I can!!

The Great Spring’tacular
was a wonderful success!

Thanks in every part to you all linking up your pretty Spring Mantels here for the party.

I really had such fun getting to look at every link that was posted. I was able to see so many different decor styles and I’m truly grateful that you all took the time to join in. 

Thanks to all the fabulousness…
I am now following even more great blogs!
And I’ll have you know, that soon, 
I’ll have to give up sleeping all together.

Without further delay, here are just a few of my favorites…

***Just a quick note… If you “pin” please go to the link and pin so the creator can get credit for their work! Thanks a bunch.

    Every time I see mantles decorated with neat things, I long for a fireplace—but too late now! A buffet of long dresser will do the trick so need to search woods for fallen birch branches–aha! and get busy.

    Next time you have a party, invite me will ya! Ha HA
    WOW if you could only see my mantel right now, it is in SHAMBLES!!! I am creating a lil something to put up, and I have REFUSED to decorate till it’s done! {Yes, I know I am WAY behind as far as spring and easter mantels go, but OH WELL!} Hopefully it will be done tomorrow!
    OH and NO sneaking into my head…
