March Spring Mantel


Spring Mantel

Several pieces from my collections with some newly thrifted additions.




My Spring Mantel 

(I have been so happy to have this Welsh Dresser to use for my Seasonal Mantels over the past few years, such a pretty change from using the shelves for books).



'Family Mushroom' is a gift from DGS when he was 7.


Kept a few white pieces from February's mantel, added a few more white pieces, silver, coral, a bit of Easter and cloches.


Ukrainian Easter Eggs in a Butterfly etched Goblet,
Parianware  white birds on a branch
and a Coalport frog inside a cloche.


My 'Paris' painted undertray and cloche with additional silverware in a vintage creamer.


Silverplate and glass Condiment set and some wonderfully tarnished silver pieces along with my favorite 'M' block.


A few white pieces with touches of silverplate, coral and a bit of glitter.


A final view of a few individual pieces from the 
Spring Mantel.

  3. There's a lot of eye candy on that Welsh dresser! I don't think I've seen a chintz plate with black centre before. The family mushroom is the funkiest thing ever!
