Mr. Wheat's Iris

The iris that Mr. Wheat gave us a few years back are in full bloom.  They are beautiful and they will always remind me of a man Rudy and I dearly love.  I was playing around with headers and decided to try using one of the iris photos as a background.  It was OK.  Then I played around with some photo techniques and came across one that I loved almost immediately.

Here's the photo before -

Spring Mantel Inspiration

I'm a little late to this - Spring is flying through here in Georgia.  It's been Spring since February here.  Anyway, I decided I needed a dose of Spring Inspiration and decided to do a search for Spring Mantels.  Here are the ones that most inspired me -

Love this one from Layla at The Lettered Cottage!!!!

Flowers bring the mantel to life! - from Miss Kopy Kat

This one makes use of lots of funky vintage treasures.

Interesting combination of bling and simple and cute-sy.
