Spring is tomorrow! I can’t believe it. How can that be when it is still below freezing outside, as it has been for the last 3 months, and there is more snow in the forecast? But nevertheless, the light is at the end of this endless winter tunnel, and before we officially say goodbye, I thought I’d better pick up where I left off with the Mantel Dressing Series. The first one was twist on a Charlie Brown Christmas. This second one, which I’ve had up since the New Year, is a little node to my Georgia roots – the Southern Mantel. What makes anything “southern”? Magnolia, cotton, and bourbon of course! With those elements we’ve added bits of things I already own as well as things from the Winter mantel, like the DIY linen-covered books. This was my favorite design of the three. Thanks Kathryn for your excellent design eye!
