Simple Spring Cottage Mantel Decorating

Simple Spring Cottage Mantel Decorating It's officially Springtime now, and the cottage & I are pretending it's all sunshine and flowers here on the Oregon coast. I kept the mantel decorating simple, as I've been tending to do the last few years. I find it's more enjoyable and relaxing to do whatever flows from my fingertips, instead of trying for some elaborate mantel that looks like a store display installation. I don't live in a store, I live in a house. That mantra has given me back the joy of decorating that I've had since I was a little girl!
