Spring Mantle and Bedding

We are experiencing early spring weather here in Eastern New Mexico and it has really put me in the mood to do some spring decorating.  

While doing a mini makeover in the master bath last week,  I added some spring touches and that made the master bedroom look are all familiar with the domino!
I hung a spring wreath over the mantle that had been in the guest bath last year.


I made some small changes to the tables on each side of the bed.....
I added 2 bunches of pink tulips and one of my mothers starched doilies to the existing vignette on this side......

This side table got a new floral design and spring picture.

I added a spring quilt to the existing bedding......

This is a quilt that I've had a long long time......

The quilt has soft spring colors,  textured squares and a few of the squares have ribbon flowers .....

The accent pillows on the bed also have ribbon flowers.

  I did a post on my new pillows see that post,   click  here

I used  similar colors in the bathroom  make over.....

Here is the link to the bathroom makeover.....

 I can't wait to show you what H is working on today .....he married a dresser to a mirror frame and is making a potting table!
