Cottage Style Party & A Spring Mantle

The calendar says it is spring, but the weather is still not cooperating.

(yes, it is snowing again…)

So I thought a little spring mantle update was in order!

You could say the theme was birds!

I feed the birds all year long, but in the spring I love waking up to their happy chirps in the morning!

No spring mantle would be complete without sunny daffodils.

I picked up a two-pack of feathery friends at the Dollar Store to tuck in here and there.

More birds on this clock I picked up this weekend along with the robins egg soaps.

Another feathery friend!

Birds and blooms!

How are you welcoming spring?

Hello Friends!

Welcome to this weeks

Cottage Style Party!


So sorry for the late post!
I'm having internet problems…sigh…

All fixed for now so let's get started!

I'm not the only one with a spring mantle update.
I love how Kathy updates her burlap wreath with a tiny birds nest and flowers!

The addition of books and green plants really feels like spring! Drop in the Kathy's blog A Delightsome Life to see more of her spring mantle update!

How sweet is this little birdie roosting on a candlestick?
So cute!

This is just a tiny part of the spring update going on at Maria Elena's cottage on her blog Our Home Away From Home. Stop by for a peek and don't miss her spring dioramas…whoa!

What can I say?
This is just so lovely!

Take it in…that's right…just soak in the beauty…

  1. I love it!! Your mantel is fun, fresh, springy, and has that contemporary edge. Great job Deb!!
    Thanks for the e-mail reminder. I'd checked a few times and then just as I was preparing to shut down for the night, I saw the e-mail. Sorry you had internet problems....that is soooooo frustrating!

    Wishing you An Extraordinary Day tomorrow! [hugs]

  2. Yes, it is good to have some reminders around that there is a spring - love the birds on the mantel. Great features. Hope you solved your computer problems. Thank you for the reminder and the party!

    1. If it doesn't look like spring outside it can always look like it inside!

  3. Your mantle is so lovely. The birds are so sweet and the touches of yellow just make it all pop.

  4. Your mantel is very pretty! Thanks for hosting!

  5. I love your birds! Love the dollar store!

    1. I love the Dollar Store too! I need to make another run there. I'm thinking about moss or something mossy...

  6. What a pretty spring mantel! Thanks for hosting.

  7. Your mantel is lovely: it should scare the snow away by its prettiness!

    1. I think you are right Magali! It's finally raining. Spring rains are much better than winter snow!

  8. Thanks for hosting, Debi :) Your Spring mantel looks great - love daffodils!! We are enjoying a few days of rain... Autumn hugs from Australia♥ ~Pernilla

  9. Love your pretty spring mantle! Daffodils are perfect. Trader Joe's (hip grocers) sells little bunches, and I pick up a few to brighten up dark corners whenever they're available.

    1. Love Trader Joe's! These are from my Kroger store which also carries inexpensive bouquets!

  10. Love the mantle. Yellow and black and white are always a hit with me. The little birds are the perfect whimsical touch. We are having yucky weather also. Hopefully these March/April snow/rain showers will pay off in beautiful May flowers and dazzling warm summer days. Thank you for hosting. Always a pleasure to join up and to visit.

  11. Love, love your mantle! Beautiful! Thank you so much for hosting each week and for the feature of my Spring decor. What a nice surprise! :) Enjoy your week! Maria

  12. Hi Deb,

    Happy April. Sorry about your internet problems. But that doesn't seem to have stopped the party. Such beautiful features this week.

  14. It’s already spring and I have seen the beauty of it in here! It is too attractive that I can only hang my mouth open! I love the vintage clock, Classy!
