Whimsical Spring Mantel

            What could be more whimsical than baby farm animals playing in a field of mushrooms!

I love to put unexpected things together to create a visual story that will  make you smile........

Is the baby calf laying under the mushrooms to protect her from a spring rain........or is she taking a nap in the shade of a mushroom cap?

I created a paper / fabric  picture to clip on each of  the chicken wire frames I have hung above the mantel


I enjoyed your visit so much.......please come back soon!
