Come Quickly Spring Mantel

I know it won't be long before it is blazin' hot here in OK, but the weather report is predicting yet another ice/snow storm tonight.  Well......this is about to be me!

 In hopes that spring really is right around the corner, I went ahead and put a few things in place, so it would feel nice and Welcome.

While this is want right now.........

All through the long winter, I dream of my garden.
On the first day of spring, I dig my fingers
deep into the soft earth.  I can feel its energy,
and my spirits soar.
Helen Hayes 

And this what I must face........

In the Spring, I have counted 136 different
kinds of weather inside of 24 hours.
Mark Twain

There is much joy in the anticipation.

Thanks for stopping by the Tub!



  1. Hi Ellie ... I love your Spring mantel ... especially the nest and the eggs in the vase. Lamps are pretty on the fireplace too. I am enjoying your blogs. Found you on It's a Spring thing linky party.
    Happy Spring,

    1. Thank you Audrey. My hubby brings me vacated nests anytime he finds one. We have lots of birds around here - how nice that they leave behind these little treasures for me. I love them too.


I LOVE your ideas and comments. Thanks for taking the time :)
