Lovely Livings – Lovely Mantel

Today, I’m sharing my mantel display with you. I found this pretty heart shaped wall art online awhile ago and thought it would make a perfect Valentine’s Day/Winter display on my fireplace mantel in my living room. Though, Spring is right around the corner, I’ll be leaving it for a few more weeks.
I wanted my mantel to be simple and sweet and this big heart did the trick. Its size fit the space nicely and created a look that was unexpected. The bird cage in the middle of the heart with a baby bird inside is a cute and whimsical design feature. The two parent birds on the outside of the cage are such a lovely way to express the love we share with our children and grandchildren.
The design on the mantel was softened with this lovely bouquet of roses placed in one of my favorite pitchers. You can’t go wrong with light pink, white and cream colored roses. Their pastel tones make you feel good even when the winter days are dark and dreary.
Sharing the love is what it’s all about and February is a perfect time for that, especially with the extra day we get this leap year. For me, its the love I share with my family and my viewers. So, let us say good bye to February (the month of love) and hello to March (the month of Spring). Oh Yeah!
