the mantle is always an evolution. i had some fun pulling out a few post-season-clearance items that i'd picked up last year, and pairing them with stand-by pieces as well as some natural elements. conveniently, the front yard bushes needed a trim, so i brought the clippings inside and put them in water. i love their yellowy-green haphazard look. the grape hyacinths are from the yard as well.
happy easter weekend!
