Outdoor Spring Mantel

 Happy March 1st everyone and
welcome to the 5th day of the 6 days of Spring!
So...are you tired of seeing my posts pop up so often this week?
It's been a busy week for sure
I have been sharing inspirations using the same potted tulips and daffodils
as ways to add a touch of Spring to your home quickly and easily.

Today I am moving back outside again and sharing a simple, romantic 
and vintage inspired mantel for Spring.

When I look at that big old rock fireplace I see is a place to really bring in some charm outdoors.
The fireplace is a focal point for sure and what better way to play it up 
for Spring than to decorate the mantel.

I brought those same pink tulips outdoors again
 and set a couple of them in old ironstone tureens.
They are in their pots and they fit perfectly tucked inside.

Next thing I was looking for was a vintage romantic charming centerpiece.
I found this beautiful concrete statuary at HomeGoods and knew it was perfect.
She has the sweetest expression on her face and so many details.

A found nest, moss, concrete bird and a couple of white pitchers
filled with wax flower and it's complete.

Hope you have enjoyed the 6 days of Spring!!!
It was tons of fun to do this series and have something to focus on blogging
about every day!
I hope you will come back on Monday for the link party 
and fantastic giveaway with Pottery Barn~
 a $250 gift card!

Hope you will visit my party friends
and see what they have been sharing this week as well

Happy Weekend everyone!!

  18. Hi Courtney!!

    I really love the concrete statuary!! She does have a beautiful and elegant expression.

    The mantel looks so inviting. It's saying, 'Come out and enjoy a beautiful afternoon with
    me.' Afternoon tea or a glass of wine close to supper would do as well.

    Have a great weekend!!
