Welcome to my Hearth room. I decided to decorate this mantel with some low profile decor because hidden behind that piece of artwork is our TV. I have yet to figure out if this niche is a delight or a disaster as it is very oddly shaped. For now we are decorating around it.
These seedling cups were leftover from my Garden Themed Spring Tree. When I started painting the eggs for the tree my 2 year old squealed with delight to join in. The eggs that are perched in the cups are his little masterpieces. Aren’t they just precious?
Here’s a side view of the mantel. At first I had several large glass vases grouped on both sides of the pillars. Once I brought home my plants; out went the glass and in came the new containers. When decorating you learn to be flexible with your design.
I love to feature pictures of my children in my seasonal decor. I use photographs that look natural and that fit with the season or holiday that I am decorating for. The picture of Jude above the egg was taken while he was painting these very eggs.
That chunky little baby right there is my older son Gavin. He loved to garden from the age of 1 and still does. This picture fits in perfectly with the natural spring theme.
My favorite flower and plant is the Hydrangea. I love how the flower has so many different shades in blues and purples and the blooms seem endless.
I picked up these chives along with all the other plants at my local grocery store and placed them in various containers I already had. This green container was a $1.50 thrift store find. The color of the pottery blends perfectly with the framed picture of my two sweet little boys.

This room is the next on my to-do list. I have big plans. As of now this is all the furniture in the room. We are on the hunt for a small sofa and have a few in mind. To see more rooms in my home take the home tour.
