Spring Mantel , New Mirror

A few weeks ago I found this mirror at one of the local thrift shops , I knew that with some white paint it was going to look great on my mantel .


I love it !
The birdies and the bunny are my nod to Spring .


We have had a few days that gave us a hint of spring , but the next few days are going to be more like winter even if the first day of spring is tomorrow .
Three weeks ago I bit the bullet and joined Weight Watchers online . I am down 4 pounds so it is heading in the right direction . Wish me luck , I’m tired of my clothes not fitting .
Look what I found at a garage sale last Saturday !

I got the lamp base for $3.00 . I had the lamp shade . I am going to add some white trim to the shade and some white chalk paint on the lamp base and distress it some so a little of the gold shows through .
( Pay no attention to the mess on that counter in my sun room .) I have been working out there , can you tell ?
Close up of the detail on the lamp . This one is staying at my house !

I hope you all have a little bit of spring at your house !

  1. Good luck with your weight watchers. I say, every day, that I'm doing something but another day goes by.......

    You never have enough lamps and that's a great one. Keep your fingers crossed that we don't get the snow they're predicting. I can't take much more winter.

  2. Your lamp is going to be fabulous!!

  3. Hi Sharon,
    I love your pretty mirror. I just can't seem to resist them and I've accumulated way to many.
    Love the spring look of your mantle.


  4. Wishing you great results on Weight Watchers. I did WW a few years ago and lost 36 lbs, but some of the weight has come back. Was just thinking today that maybe I should rejoin.

  5. Love your mantle! Love that new mirror--I would be so pleased with it too!

  6. Your pretty mirror is a great focal point on your sweet mantel.
