  1. Hi Rachel,
    Your Spring vignette is lovely. I love to incorporate gifts from nature in my decor, so your greenery mixed in with the brown books are spot on for Spring.
    Thanks for the inspiration,

  5. What a lovely spring vignette! I am working on painting mason jars myself right now. My spring mantel is all done up with bunnies, eggs, birds and a torn rag garland. Visiting from the Love of Family & Home blog hop. Have a great day! ~ Jamie
