Robin's Egg Blue

The journey to a more cottage style is in full bloom at our house.
Do you like this cute little bird plate? If you want one take your $2.50 down to Hobby Lobby because he's 50% off this week.

Are you loving this Robin's Egg Blue vase? I do. It makes me incredibly happy. He is only $3.50 this week at Hobby Lobby and the white flowers were only $2.50.

And ta-da...our new spring mantle. These are my candle lights from Restoration Hardware. I shopped the top of my mantle in the sitting room and moved them into the living room. It was hard to think of moving them because for two years they have been at home on top of my china cabinet. It was hard to take them off and move them because like some of you, change is hard for me too. Worst case scenario I thought was I'd have rearranger's remorse and have to move them back. Guess what? I love their new home and they are staying.



There are more fun, affordable finds I can't wait to share with you later this week.

Hugs, Bugs

Your mantel looks great. I have seen the plate at HL. I think it comes in brown, too. I have not seen the vase. That is gorgeous. May need to go to HL.
