St. Patrick's Day Mantel

 Lucky I'm in love with my best friend, compliments of Landee See, Landee Do 
Subway art from Funky Polkadot Giraffe.  I made a few lines orange.  
I was inspired by this display at Landee See, Landee Do. I was already to grab wood scraps from the garage and start painting when I remembered that I quilt... So I grabbed my fabric and made myself a rainbow! I used a piece of foam core board, pinned the rainbow to it and then pushed it into the back of the frame. That frame was just sitting up in the attic waiting for a new coat of white paint. I am going to hand embroider over the arching stitches when I take it down since the lines are hard to see. I bought the white Hydrangeas flowers at JoAnns for my 'clouds'.  I looked everywhere for a pot I could fill with chocolate coins and I want a cute Leprechaun that will sit on the mantel but I had  no luck finding either. I will continue the search for next year's mantel! Oh, and I made a pretty garland with two different shades of green, white, and green and white polkadots.   

Top of the Morning to ya!
