spring clean

as i mentioned a few weeks ago, i made way for the spring decor on my mantel (and by mantel?  i mean top of tv stand), and this past weekend i switched it up a bit again for a little easter inspiration.  care to take a peek (this question is 100% rhetorical, hope that's ok!)?

and for the easter update:

my favorite part about my easter decorations?  they are a collection of memories from easters long past.  the cross-stitched easter bunny on the scooter?  i made that in third grade on the drive to nashville, tennessee for spring break.  the bunny with my name on it in the picture above?  i'm pretty sure my little sister was still in diapers when we each got one.  many holidays have to do with families of course, but there is an unidentifiable quality about easter that makes it ripe for nostalgia.

i have a few other easter "heirlooms" around my apartment (and many more in boxes at home at my parents'), perhaps i'll give you a little peek at them as the holiday gets closer!

i'll be linking up today's post to the stories of a to z's spring mantel party, so be sure to check out all the great inspiration over there!
