I haven’t posted in so long, y’all probably thought I’d flown the coop (or more likely, you hadn’t noticed).  You know I love to switcheroo my mantel and post about it.  Well, with no imminent holiday, I have been mantel uninspired, and the Easter bunnies just wouldn’t hop off the mantel.  The Spring birds finally flew in and pecked the bunnies into hiding.

Hi Laurie...

Your spring "tweet" mantel is sooo pretty, dear friend! I love, love, LOVE the pretty bird plates...they make a lovely statement on your spring mantel! I also enjoyed seeing all of your sweet little birds! You have a beautiful collection! Love the pretty bird tags that you hung on the lamps too! Your Santos is just perfect for this "tweet" mantel...with her holding the little bird! I love that! Thanks for sharing your gorgeous mantel with us today!

How are you doing, sweet lady? I hope that my note is finding you and your family all doing well!

Love ya,

How pretty and Springiefied (is that a word?).:-D I am a fan of all the little birds - have many of them around my home.
Like your header.
Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

You mantel is just to "tweet" for words. Love all you little birds. They are one of my favorite things to watch.

Sarah said...

Tweet, indeed! You are inspiring me to force my bunnies to hop back into storage. It's time, even though they just hoped out a little more than a week ago. Still running behind this year.
Beautiful spring here in TX, so most of my time is spent outside. "Teeny" arrived yesterday, so I've been reading most of the day. ;-) Do you have your copy?

haha Dear Laurie,
Your birds and I are on the same page. I scooted a real bunny out of my yard yesterday morning! I shouted ..Be Gone With You..Easter is over..go elsewhere..hahaha. The bunny would have been feasting on my plants and upcoming flowers..
Last week I would have been taking his picture! Go figure!

HI Laurie...

You are one ambitious chickie.....I am not one to totally change things out. It's just too much work. I'm lazy? Yeah, that could be it. Love your new look.....and am crazy about the birdies.
