Freshening up the Mantel

Bye Bye Winter, Hello Spring!!
We're not quite there yet but it's time to change up the mantel.
Adding in a few St. Patty's touches..(spelled out Shamrock with our letter blocks and the birdcage is from thrifting-I had plans to spray paint it but I like the green right now).

The birds are from my daughter's sweet 16 party.
 I thought the mantel needed a little more swagger so I made this 'lucky' pennant banner.{tute to follow}

The console table in the family room with this great subway art.
I brought the shamrock candle holders back from Ireland. {sigh}
Cute little thatched cottage.
The shamrock buckets are from Joanne Fabrics.
The bunny tin is from this thrifting adventure.
It already feels lighter and fresher!
How is your Spring decorating coming along?
