We also made some fun Rice Krispy Eggs.  Simply use any size plastic egg coated in non-stick cooking spray and stuff them with warm Rice Krispy Treat mix. Let them sit for a few minutes, pull them out and add your delicious goodies.

DIY Speckled Robin’s Eggs

Today is the first day of Spring so I thought it would be fun to share some DIY Robin’s Eggs. I love the look of robins eggs, something about their soft beautiful colors. OK and I’ll admit, the chocolate robins eggs are my absolute favorite!

Baker’s twine Easter eggs

I can feel it, Spring is just around the corner!  The birds chirping wake me in the morning, last years flowers are starting to bloom, the days are longer and the sun is shining, I love this time of year. (OK minus the kids not wanting to go to bed because of the time change)

I have a plethora of plastic eggs so I thought it would be fun to give them a mini makeover just in time for Spring!

Easter Mantel

~Hi Friends~

Well, I’m a little late with my Easter Mantel this year but hey at least it’s done.  Since I finished a little behind schedule, I decided on something super easy, no fuss, can keep it up for the next few months minus the eggs.  I went with lots of green and  a few pops of color using fresh flowers and some glass eggs inserted with feathers.

I don’t think I have ever shown you our “new” rug that I picked up at Joss and Main about 4 months ago.  Guess we have been a little busy (smile).  I went with an indoor/outdoor rug this time around for the durability and price and have to say I love it!

The moss monogram I made a little while back, you can find the tutorial here.

The cute little bunnies were at the dollar store, can you believe that, two for a dollar, I love that store.

 And yes, I have embraced the huge dominant design feature in our family room.

~Hope everyone has a wonderful week, thank you so much for stopping in today~

I do receive many inquires on the fireplace so here is all the information.

Stacked Stone in Mountain Blend

The mantel is a 4×4 piece of lumber purchased at Home Depot. We stained and distressed it with a hammer.

The screen was purchased at a local iron store when they were going out of business.
