Easy Does It


Hello Dear Ones! 
Well, I decided to freshen up my mantel.
 I chose to go the easy simple route.
You may recognize this basket I had used in an Easter display.

 Well probably a trillion years ago, when we bought this house, 
I was determined to find a basket to sit on my mantel. 
I was successful!


 Then I bought flowers, fauxs, and just poked it full to overflowing.
I've always loved this basket of flowers but it has been put away for a very long time.
I decided it was time to use it again where it was born to serve!

 I'm still using my little scrapbook paper covered books here with a new addition.
A little new parrot I found for 50 cents! Yep! 50 cents!

 Ain't he purdy? 
Now I would normally have gotten a female parrot but there was no female to be found.
How can I tell this is a he?
He's just got that look in his eye! :)

So there you have my easy simple silly mantel.


Pin It



Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~
