Spring-ing Up the Mantel

I don't know what lies around the bend in the road but I'm going to believe the best does. ~ LM Montgomery

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone! Hope you all enjoy a little green today.

My photo above is from a Tea Time Tuesday post several years ago.

I have been down with the flu for over a week and there is no sign of it going yet. I did manage to take a few pictures of my Spring mantel so I will share some of those today.

Little birdie on the mantel

For flowers that bloom about our feet;
For tender grass so fresh and sweet;
For song of bird and hum of bee;
For all things fair we hear and see,
Father in heaven, 
we thank Thee!  
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Always be on the lookout for the presence of wonder. ~ unknown

The little bird's nest is one my son found me several years ago. It was abandoned and the eggs are Easter eggs. I love bringing the nest out this time of year!

Sorry the reflection isn't great and the closeups show the cords, but you get the idea.

Please take care, my dear friends. In these troubled times, let your mind dwell on lovely things {Philippians 4:8}. We all need to take good care of ourselves and stay positive. Thank God for your family, your friends, and your blessings. Stay safe!

Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God. ~ Corrie ten Boom
