Vintage Easter Mantel

I’ve lived in this house, with this mantel, for 8 years, and the only time I’ve ever decorated it is for Christmas. Every Christmas, it’s looked the exact same, and fairly boring at that.

I’m honestly a little intimidated about decorating my mantel for different holidays, mainly because I have no idea what I’m doing. I look at images in magazines and on blogs and am always amazed by how people have an eye for this sort of thing.  I don’t, but I thought I’d step out of my comfort zone, and collect together all the things I’ve been storing in my basement, and try to put together a little vintage collection for Easter.
