Mantel Decor

Sometimes when I change things around, I might try several different looks before deciding on the one that makes the 'cut'.   This was the case recently.  I was trying to decide what I wanted on the mantel after all the red of the past few months.  First I tried this look.



I placed this picture (actually wood) on books to elevate it a little.  I then added the DT birds and the flower pot (consignment buy).  I actually left it this way for a few hours, but it didn't "feel" right. 


I like the items I used, and in looking at these photos, it may be the two green vases (see first photo) that threw it off.


I think I might recreate this for Easter and use other items, instead of the green vases.

What do you think?  Maybe add some bunnies?

 Maybe some bowls and pitchers???



This just might show up again.....soon!

I will joing these fun parties:
