Spring Mantel & Link Party

to Day Two of the
Great Spring’tacular
link party parade
I get to play hostess today
and we are going to be rocking some
Spring Mantels girls!
Are You Ready?
{I’m a wee bit excited… Can you tell?}
We’ll Kick it Off with My Mantel.
I’ll show you mine…
Then you can show me yours!
I have been dying ready to share this for weeks now.
Welcome to Fox Hollow Cottage at Spring


Where, no matter the weather…
it’s Springtime inside.
Wanna peek at what the new hearth will look like?
You can check it out here.
The new aqua paint color could not be anymore fun
and it’s perfect for Spring.
I am just loving it!
Please visit THIS post if you’d like
to see how the banner and accents were made.
This sweet pink chair has been waiting to come out and play for months.

You may have already spied it HERE in the newly organized craft and decor storage area.


I was saving it for Spring and I am so glad I did.

It just makes it even more special!



A Bunny Under Glass…
Well of course!
Can’t have it hopping away now can we?
(the others are well trained)

That’s It for Me.

*Now it’s your turn to share*
Don’t forget to head over to see Gina tomorrow!
I’ll be linky up with her  
Where I’ll be sharing the 411 on how I added some simple, custom details to my mantle decor.

    Thanks for the wonderful fun!

    I LOVE your Spring mantel, Shannon! It is so festive, fun, colorful and happy! Your beautiful wall color serves as the perfect backdrop for your Easter goodies … love your sweet bunnies, and the banner is too cute! Thanks for hosting … what fun!

  7. says

    Shannon can I say how much I just LOVE your mantel girly!! Too too cute! I have not busted out the bunnies yet so I have nothing except for what I did back in January so no fun.

  8. says

    Hi Shannon! Thanks so much for hosting! Your mantel looks adorable! I actually own that same Egg Hunt Today paper mache bunny! :-) I think I also have the one you displayed under the cloche too. I never remember everything I have until I get it all out to decorate.
    Hope you have a great week!

  9. says

    Shannon, your mantel is adorable and the colors are so pretty.

    Thank you so much for linking to Project Queen’s “Turning the Daunting Into the Do-able”!

    I haven’t decorated my mantel yet, but as soon as I do I will be back to join the party.

  10. says

    Your mantel is so pretty, love the banner and love the color, love the chair. So very pretty and springy. I would love to join your party, but I have not even started spring projects yet. I have 8 colors painted on my wall, can’t seem to chose which one, so I am in “hell” right now. Wish I started so I could join in on your party. Please know I would, except I only have a spring pillow to share and that doesn’t fit under mantel.

  11. says

    First of all, thank you SO much for taking the time to leave me a sweet comment about my bathtub!
    Second, thanks for reminding me that the stupid word verification was STILL somehow working on my comments! I read your post a couple weeks ago, and changed it… maybe I forgot to hit save :)
    Anyway having a sweet comment from YOU made my week, {i am not worthy}

  12. says

    Thanks so much, Shannon, for hosting this fun party. Your mantel & all the accessories are just delightful. I just love all the colors. I’m now following via Linky!

  13. says

    Boy Shannon…you sure have perked up my day…this is just gorgeous! I absolutely love everything, and that little pink chair and lampshade are just the perfect shade to go with the new aqua wall! LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

  14. says

    Hi Shannon! Oh, your mantel is so precious! I love the heck out of it. I’m joining you and have linked up to your party but when I copy your link and add it to my blog to link back to you – it doesn’t work. I thought I had done it wrong, but I’ve done it about 5 times now and it when I click on it to come back to you, it says – not found! I have tried, I really have! Blogger could be acting up as it does sometimes. Thank you so much for hosting!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia 😉

    Great mantel and fun party idea! We’re feeling all springy over here but sadly all our latest just include projects with dirt…Guess we’ll just have to check out all the links and enjoy the spring time creativity!

  16. says

    Love your spring mantel. I had planned to link up with you but time slipped away from me and I haven’t completed my decorating. I will try to visit others and be inspired. Who knows maybe I can finish up tonight and complete a post. Happy almost spring.

  17. says

    What a fun mantel! Love the paper flowers and of course that bunny under the cloche! Can’t have him escaping now can we.

    Will be posting my mantel tomorrow and coming right back to link up!

    Congrats on your first link party!

  18. says

    Your mantle is awesome, Lilo!!!!! So cheery and bright! I adore it! It really gets me in the mood for Easter and the warm weather of Spring! I bet everyone is always in a great mood at your house, with that mantle. How could they possibly not be? Makes me happy just looking at it! And the aqua wall just makes it perfect! ~ Stitch

  19. says

    Shannon, your mantel is gorgeous! It’s so bright and springy! I love the aqua with pink! Your chair is adorable! Thanks for hosting! I love seeing the other’s amazing ideas!

  20. says

    Hi girls! Well… being me first ever linky, somehow, my post went up about 8 hours early so of course, the link was not active. Since it’s up, I changed the link up time and it’s open now. Thanks God it’s not a real party, my house is not ready to receive guests 😉 Have fun and get your link on!!

  21. says

    You know how much I love this! Those colors just knock my socks off and that aqua wall is just genius. I’m going to steal that pink chair one day, so watch out!
