do you have the fever?

not  bieber fever


 spring fever

 i do

just a little playing 
this week with the mantle.

Girls, this may be a record

christmas is put away

and the mantle is put back together.

 it's not even easter, yet.

Happy White Wednesday

P.S. You may think 
I'm a bit A.D.D. about decorating.
I am.

What a beautiful mantle.
& Yes... I do have a serious case of spring fever... so much snow on the ground, I don't think it could possibly be gone before summer...
( & I still have a bit of Christmas not yet put away.. : )

HI Rene, Melissa here from The Vintage Attic's blog. Thanks for stopping by or I may have never found your blog..That after my whole morning and two cups of tea going over all your past blogs, have fallen in love with it. I'm now a follower with great expectations of a new post.

You left me a message wanted to know more about a piece I have on my blog, it's an organ top that was made into a wall shelf, and it is for sale at my booth space.

It's been great meeting you,
Be Blessed and Have a Fabulous day,

Bead and Needle said...

Definitely NOT Bieber fever! Something about your photos is SO yummy and "rich" looking - love the Valentine post with the black and whites! Happy Belated White Wednesday, Rene - Tanya


Love your decorating ADD. It's fun to change things around.

Diane said...

Your mantle is gorgeous. I wish I had one. Someday. In the meantime I have a long shelf that I love to use for a mantle, might copy some of your ideas. Have a good weekend.

The Tattered Cottage said...

Miss Rene -
YES!! I have SPRING fever, so much so that I have passed by your house a couple of times to see if you have started painting! I actually have picked up a few items to work on, in hopes that there will be a sale to participate in (*wink*).
Your mantle looks beautiful with all of your treasures.

Anonymous said...

I do love that mantle of yours! I wish mine were a bit more conducive to pretty vignettes like yours- it's seems to be one of the hardest places in my house to be satisfied with for some reason!

Love all the pretties and the softness with the linens!

bee blessed

Adrienne said...

Oh yes I do have Spring Fever! Real bad!! Everytime the sun peeks through our cloudy days I hope it will arrive early!

Grandma Nina said...

I love the look and style of your blog and your home!
And I'm still putting away the last straggling remains of Christmas myself.

Bohemian said...

I love your Mantle vignette... AND the Mantle! *swoon* Glad the Pink Tape Measure shot made you smile, there's a story about that piece... my Grandson actually got it in one of those European Christmas Crackers and I conned... um, I mean traded him out of it for something else because Gramma was lusting after it! *LOL and blushing* Being a Fabric Artist and having a thing for the Pink, I REALLY wanted it! Thankfully most little boys aren't that enamored with Pink Tape Measures and a negotiation was reached. *whew* Thought the back end story might make you smile even more!? *he he*

Liz said...

I can't believe how fast spring is coming! I wish I had a lovely mantle like that. Today would be the perfect day to build a fire and enjoy it! :)
