Spring Mantel

Spring has sprung at A Petite Cottage...Although it is feeling more like Summer than Spring. 
Officially, Spring begins on the 20th of March but I couldn't wait to start decorating for it. So here is my Spring Mantel.
I love the cute little bunny topiary...It was a Pier Imports find from a few years back. However it was just the little bunny on a stick when I first got it. This year I decided to placed it in one of my favorite vintage milk glass urns with a sweet little nest, some pretty little flowers and some green moss. Love how it turned out. The crackle bunny pair is a thrift store find from several years ago.
I made the little burlap "Spring" banner out of a scrap piece of burlap I had laying around and some letter stickers,
I decided to keep my chicken wire frame from my Valentine's Mantel but just changed out the heart cutouts and replaced them with pretty little butterflies.
I do hope that Spring has sprung or will spring real soon for you too.
Wishing you all a beautiful day.

Happy Birthday to Me.

Last Thursday was my birthday and I got to celebrate it for 4 whole days...Yay!
Hubby took Thursday and Friday off from work to celebrate with me. 

And how did we celebrate?

Well, aside from the usual birthday breakfast, cake, balloons, flowers and dinner goodies we also did some building...and by "we" I mean...


Hubby
Daughter
and her sweet boyfriend, Zac...
I just sat back, watched and took pictures.


So what did they build me for my birthday?
A beautifully, handcrafted with lots of love
 Barn Door

Happy Birthday to Me!!!
I am the luckiest girl ever.

Oh, but this wasn't it...There is more.

Here is a little sneak peek of what they are still working on...
However, this project is a combo birthday present for me and birthday present for Hubby.
I can't wait 'til it's all done so I can show you.


Thank you for stopping by for a visit.
Hope you come back again soon.

Greatest thing....EVER!!!!



If you've known me for a while you know that I am a chocoholic.

I love, love, love love the stuff!

But what you might not know is that I sometimes often always have a hard time sharing my chocolate. So I find myself hiding it. "My Secret Chocolate Stash" I call it.  Hee, hee, hee. 

Well, now I can hide this one in plain sight.
My parents brought back for me from their lastest trip to Mexico a bag of these delicious chocolates, camouflaged as pretty rocks. 
 Isn't it the greatest thing ever? Maybe you'll agree if you love chocolate and are a bit stingy with it like me :-)
So do you have a secret chocolate/candy/treat stash too...Please, please, please don't let me be the only one  :-)






Hugs and Kisses (Hershey's are the best),
