When you love what you have, you have everything you need.
Happy Spring Salvage Friends!!!!
I am excited to share with you my Budget Friendly Spring Mantel as everything I used I already owned….and most of that came from the thrift store or was a DIY project.

Now, for holiday or seasonal decor I like to keep it simple. I’m not one for getting a ton of items you can only have for a few weeks and then it all gets stored. That’s too much money, too much time, and too much storage for me.
I have one small Easter box and if it doesn’t fit in there….. I don’t purchase it.
These items get used in different ways each spring; they accent what I already own.

To highlight just how uncomplicated I like things – I didn’t even bother to change at my chalkboard with a spring or Easter Quote or graphic. 😂
It’s simple, but still makes it feel like spring…to me.

I love your blog so much Deborah. You really epitomize the whole recycle, reduce, reuse philosophy in everything you do. Love your Spring friendly mantel and that copper pot, stovey thing in front.

I certainly got blessed when The Mister’s grandma let us have that copper pot!!!
