Goodbye Spring Hello Summer

I like to leave my spring decor up as long as I can. And since summer is almost here I thought I would share some pictures of my spring vignette. I don't have a fireplace mantle to decorate, but I do have a cute shelf I like to pretend is my mantle and I change it with the seasons.

I bought the mirror at Goodwill several years ago for $7.


I love my Ironstone pitcher! It was an eBay purchase.


I borrowed the picture from my son's nursery.
I love the soft colors and cute animals.

The books were my dad's when he was a kid.
He wrote his name in them and dated them in 1957.


I"m linking to the parties listed in my sidebar!
