All Summer in a Mantel

So...the bunny mantel stayed up through the end of May.

'Cause ain't nobody got time for decorating in May.

With the arrival of summer comes lighter clothes, lighter food, and lighter mantels.

DD#2 and I added the banner today, and after much fiddling and fidgeting, got it placed just where we wanted.  
The bike was a thrift store find a few years back.  Isn't it fun?
All the flowers in my yard are off to a slow start because of our delayed spring, so I made some from circles of tissue paper and twigs. 
 The paper pack used for the banner is the best $5.00 I've ever spent at Michael's; it's shown up in all sorts of projects.  
Lighter and brighter.  
One project down, about 122, 345, 875 to go. 
Be blessed,
