Springy Mantel

Hello, Dear Ones! I'm finally getting my Easter decorating done. With company coming for Easter, it's amazing how fast I can move when I have too! :)
 Okie dokie! Now first you'll see the chains still pulled up on the cuckoo clock because it needs to get fixed. Then the quilt is spread down on the cushions of the sofa because my little grandchildren come over all of the time with snotty noses that get wiped all over everything and sticky little cookie crumbed fingers, well, you get the picture. The chenille fabric is just a little bit too dainty for that! I share this with you because I love you! :)
 Now since that is all cleared up, over to the fireplace we go.
 I decided since my mirror is so very plane (but I'm sentimental about it) I would hang some plates on either side. I think it helps fill out the space.
 I found these white lanterns and poked them up here. I'm thinking they may be too white and might have to do something to them after I dismantle the mantel! That sounds cool, huh? :)
 Any way, I poked in a couple of my favorite little bunnies. One little bunny even has a nest with eggs in it to keep him company.
Love my little lidded bunny dishes and I poked them all over the mantel.
 I made this wreath and it's twin years ago for my two front doors in Texas. I thought, why not just hang one up to celebrate Spring! I'm so talented like that you know! ;)
 Plates, lanterns, bunnies and a wreath. I also tossed in a little green leafed vine I had and thought how neat it would look if I had some of those little LED twinkly lights spread though it. I looked at a few places and couldn't find any. Oh, well...
 There you have it, my Easter mantel that will probably stay this way for a couple of months. I even lit the fire for you, actually I just turned a knob because...
We're still covered up in snow! Can I vent now? Waaa!!! Waaa!!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

I'm A Believer

I thought love was only true in fairy tales
Meant for someone else but not for me.
Love was out to get me
That's the way it seemed.
Disappointment haunted all my dreams.

Then I saw her face, now I'm a believer
Not a trace of doubt in my mind.
I'm in love, I'm a believer!
I couldn't leave her if I tried.

I thought love was more or less a given thing,
Seems the more I gave the less I got.
What's the use in tryin'?
All you get is pain.
When I needed sunshine I got rain.

Then I saw her face, now I'm a believer
Not a trace of doubt in my mind.
I'm in love, I'm a believer!
I couldn't leave her if I tried.
