Winter Be Gone!

That's right, friends ... even though it's cold and still feeling like winter OUTside ... according to our mantel ... the warmer temps have arrived ... the bunnies are hopping ... the *faux* florals are blooming ... annnnnd, the fake eggs are out in full force!  

I'm hoping maybe ... just MAYbe ... that these Spring touches I've added will grab Mother Nature's attention and encourage her to move the season along!



I mean, after all ... our pretty, faux plants from IKEA should help scare the cold temps away, right?!


And, this sweet "bunny in a basket" ornament and faux flowers from Michael's should make old man winter go into hiding! 


And, naturally, these seasonal pastel malted milk balls will entice Spring to come closer, right?!


Look ... even our little bunnies have had enough by showing that they "shalt" not "hear, see or speak" of winter ANY more!


If that still doesn't send winter away, hopefully, our egg wreath (from Home Goods) will help to do the trick!


If not, our banner (from Target) announcing SPRING will certainly let Mother Nature know that enough is enough!


I say that we all join forces by pulling out our eggs, bunnies, florals and anything SPRING to help make winter disappear(!)... whaddaya think?  No way will it want to stick around if we all ban together!  I'll be eagerly waiting to see all that you do!

Until then, I'll just stare at our mantel a bit longer and see what happens!  LOL


As always, thanks so much for stopping by!

I'm off to play here:

That is so pretty. The little peek-a-boo bunny is adorable. It just calms me to look at these photos. We are in the middle of another winter storm. Will it ever end? Tough Canadians..be damned. I want Spring. Deb

I love those three little bunnies, Becca! Your mantel looks lovely. I put some Spring decor out yesterday and yet it had the nerve to flurry a little bit ago! Unfortunately, I think there is more in the forecast for later today.

Bravo, I love your Easter mantle masterpiece. The entire ensemble is gorgeous. You have definitely inspired me. I love how you've balanced everything out so well. I know I say this all the time, but this mantle belongs in a spring issue magazine, truly it does! Thanks for sharing! XO ~Liz

Everything looks so pretty! So funny...I saw the two faux greeneries in the two white vases from Michaels and I was like...hey! I bought those too!!! Aren't they great? They were on sale so I had to snatch up a few! I put them in my new craft room. Check it out if you are interest! http://www.livingandlearningwithluisa.com/1/post/2013/02/craft-room-before-and-after.html?

Wow, your mantel is so pretty, Becca! Those little bunnies are adorable, and I adore the wreath. Surely, Old Man Winter wouldn't dare show his "nastiness" with all your "Springy-ness" going on!

Have a great weekend!
